Last Saturday, the 10th annual Bellevue Fashion Week wrapped up with the Front Row Fashion Runway Show at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue. The event was presented by Vogue, with extra special guests Vogue market stylist Cara Crowley and celebrity stylist, designer and editor Rachel Zoe in attendance.
The Bellevue Collection and the Kemper Freeman family raised more than $100,000 in donations, with Front Row Fashion generating $57,300 to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital. The previous evening's Posh Party Trend Show raised $45,225 for Bellevue LifeSpring, a program and services provider for families and children.

The fashion show rounded up the top fall trends, including designer looks from shops in the Bellevue Collection. Ms. Zoe’s entry into the event was surely cause for neck-craning, as showgoers hurriedly reached for their iPhones to snap a picture or two.
Runway looks focused on luxe, '70s-inspired floaty hemlines, shades of gray, layers of lace, tweed jackets, plenty of wool ponchos and lots of leather; just the ticket to get everyone excited for the fall season. To end the night in sophisticated and stately style, models strutted the catwalk in evening dresses and gentlemanly suits.
