Over the course of its second six-month run, the Independent Designer Runway Show competition provided guidance and industry connections to 10 local designers. On September 25, the journey culminated on the Hyatt Regency Bellevue’s catwalk in one high-style, high-drama evening sponsored by Seattle Met. I joined a panel of judges that included an Amazon business development pro and Fashion Group International’s regional director; we awarded a $5,000 grand prize and two $1,000 runner-up prizes, but this selection of ready-to-wear fashion proves that the city’s sartorial skills run deep. —Laura Cassidy
