Trend-Setting Seattle Fashion Week in Bellevue, WA
Host to the hottest runway show in the Northwest, there's no better way to kick-off fall than with the season's boldest designers and style icons. Our Eastside neighbor welcomes guests to the 10th Anniversary of Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection, September 23rd-27th. Events take place across town, as the city's streets transform into runways of their own for five days and nights, full of FREE style sessions, designer after-parties and trendsetting shopping you won't find anywhere else. The main events sold-out months ago (the Independent Designer Runway Show, Posh Party Trend Show, and Front Row Fashion), but if you have tickets, be sure to take advantage of your Shopping Pass for discounts throughout the Collection, just 4 miles from your room or suite at The Heathman Hotel - with plenty of space to store your Fashion Week finds!
