J.Crew joins Nordstrom
Beginning on September 20, J.Crew women’s apparel and accessories will be sold at 16 Nordstrom stores and online. Petites will only be offered online. Two locations are in our backyard at Bellevue Square and in Downtown Seattle. Nordstrom will exclusively sell the brand (and it’s sister store Madewell) outside of their own doors, and the fall collection promises to not disappoint: it will include J.Crew Rhodes and Regent blazers in a variety of colors, as well as best-seller Martie pants among other classic apparel.
Back to School Sale
La Ree’s fall fashion sale continues with 20 percent off one regular priced item in stores only. If you needed an excuse to add a new jacket or sweater to your wardrobe, you now have one (but really you can never have too many jackets in Washington!).
Fashion First Seattle
Support local Seattle retailers and designers during the 13th year of the Fashion First runway show. Educators, students, stylists, and more will come together to preview the latest fall trends. David Lawrence, Mercer, and one of the newest stores to hit the greater Seattle area, Divalani Style will all showcase their upcoming fall collections. Before the show there will be a live auction to raise money for the students of the Crescent Moon Foundation.
Save the Date: September 21–25
Bellevue Fashion Week
The sky is cloudy, temperatures are dropping, and pumpkin spice lattes are being sold on every coffee-shop corner. Fall is on everyone’s mind and what better way to spend the first few days of fall than at Fashion Week at the Bellevue Collection. Mark your calendars because the five-day event is full of exclusive runway shows, trend reports, wine tastings and parties, and of course shopping. Special events include the Front row fashion show presented by VOGUE and the Independent Designer Runway Show where up-and-coming Northwest designers share their latest collections.
