Seattle is gearing up for a major fall fashion season and this year there's a lot to celebrate around town. Over the summer Universal Standard opened a new retail concept in Belltown, Armoire expanded its presence in the city with a new 7,000 square-foot headquarters in Pioneer Square, and K Banana opened a permanent location for k-beauty fans at University Village. The city also has an entire exhibit dedicated to celebrating Seattle's rich fashion history at MOHAI, Gucci opened a new handbag boutique at Nordstrom and the party was written up by Vogue, and local brand Evernu partnered with Stella McCartney and Adidas to produce a 100% recyclable hoodie. It's been a busy summer season for fashion in Seattle and we're just getting started.
The fall shopping season is here and we invite you to shop local and support indie designers, local boutiques, fashion stylists in the city, and of course, retailers around town. Whether you have $25 to spend or $2500 to spend, do it locally. It matters. Here's the definitive guide to fall fashion events in the city. Use this guide as a map to choosing your own fashion adventure around town. Tag @Gossip_Glamour on Instagram in your shopping pics and use the hashtag #ShopLocalSEA for a chance to win 2 tickets to the MOHAI Seattle Style: Fashion/Function Exhibit as part of Seattle Style Month. A winner will be announced on Friday, Sept. 13, 2019. Happy shopping!
