The 7th Annual Fashion First runway show brings Seattle together for the most exciting night of fashion in the Northwest. Local fashion retailers, designers, stylists, educators, students, interior designers and members of the media attend each year to preview designer and specialty store trends for the upcoming fall season.
As Seattle’s longest running independent fashion show, Fashion First was founded to provide an affordable, but powerful marketing platform for the local fashion retailer. In the 2009-2010 retail year Seattle saw over 20 independent retailers close their doors due to the economic downturn. As a result, Fashion First is going back to basics in order to increase focus on our core mission: promoting and supporting the many stylish and diverse local retailers our region offers.
With a wealth of talented local retailers and designers in Seattle, the Emerald City is on the rise as a style scene all on its own. Fashion First is the intersection where designers, small business owner, and the fashion-forward consumer meet, creating a network of fashion enthusiasts unlike any other in this thriving city. Come see and support them.
