WHERE: Showbox SoDo

WHAT: Students from all departments at the Art Institute of Seattle are running the show–the Fashion League show, that is.

Ten mini collections—designed by students, of course—will take to the runway; the annual fashion showcase is the pride and joy of AIS undergrads learning the ropes of the runway world.

But there's more than just those presentations. Before the shows silent auction bidding serves as a fundraiser. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to Redeeming Soles, a Seattle-based non-profit that serves those in need with barely used shoes.

Tickets range from $20 to $60 (unless you’re a high school student with valid ID; for you, it’s free).

WHEN: Thursday, March 6 at either 5 for the matinee, or 8 for the second show. Doors open at 4:30 and 7:15 respectively, tickets available online now at
