STYLE UPDATES: Louboutins, The Forecast, and Luly Yang's Couture Fashion Show!
Seattle's fashion scene is bursting at the seams (no pun intended!) with unique style and fabulous social opportunities! Below, I spotlight the events that I have attended and some you won't want to miss this spring! Christian Louboutin's 20th Anniversary Capsule Collection.
Last Friday, I had the pleasure of viewing Christian Louboutin’s 20th Anniversary Capsule Collection at the Nordstrom Flagship in downtown Seattle. The collection features 20 pairs of red soled shoes from designer's incredible 20-year career. In between sips of delicious champagne and the DJ’s upbeat tracks, Louboutin’s PR Rep from New York shared with me the inspiration behind some of the iconic shoes.
Below are some of my favorite pairs!
Seattle Magazine’s The Forecast Fashion Show.
Benaroya Hall played host a gathering of stylish Seattleites at Seattle Magazine’s first annual The Forecast Fashion Show. I must say that the styling (by the divine Terri Morgan) was amazing, and the drinks, music, and decor were expertly managed by the Seattle Magazine Team.
After an hour of pleasant mingling (and admiring the sequins and sky-high heels the attendees donned) it was time for the show! David Lawrence, Wraphbillement, Baby & Co., Report Shoes, Horseshoe, Nube Green, Snowboard Collection, Seattle E-Bike, and Luly Yang Couture all contributed looks to the show that demonstrated the range of style that Seattle designers have to offer. Not to mention, a portion of the revenue was donated to Community for Youth - because giving back is always in fashion!
