Event Recap: FashioNXT 2017

I was in desperate need of a mini-vacay after putting in countless hours at my full-time job. So I decided to take a fashion road trip down to Portland to attend the Friday night collections at FashioNXT. Luckily, Portland is only two and a half hours from Seattle so I wasn’t totally dead in the […]

My first experience with Nordstrom‘s Beauty Trend Show was in Spring 2017. I just happened to find a list of upcoming Nordstrom events on their website and I RSVP’d to cover the event for FGI Seattle. Since I lived in Tacoma at the time and the show was in Bellevue, I decided to make a fancy […]

New York Fashion Academy 12th Annual Runway Show

My final event of yesterday was, of course, the New York Fashion Academy 12th Annual Runway Show. I attended the event last year and was beyond impressed with the level of talent displayed by the students.

My second stop of yesterday was to Pacific Place for the “Fall Into Fashion” Show, which allowed me to kill two birds with one stone (fall fashion inspiration and shopping, of course).
