Fashion Friday: Seamless in Seattle live presentations, new swimwear + Pariscope Studios’ trunk sale
Good morning! I’m spending this (sunny) day sitting on the judging panel for our annual Seamless in Seattle competition, and I can’t wait to see what our 12 finalists have brought for show and tell. Follow me on Twitter for the inside scoop (and some great fashion) today. And don’t forget to vote for your favorite, and come see the fashions live at our Seamless in Seattle fashion show on June 8.
If you are into funky, fabulous jewels, let me introduce to Pariscope Studios on lower Queen Anne. Jewelers Joanne Sugura and Elena Korakianitou have partnered with clothing designer Britt Rynearson for a weekend-long sale at their eclectic studio, selling off their handmade zipper necklaces (above), paintings, sculpture and Rynearson’s hand textured silk wraps. The studio is located at 159 Western Ave. W, Suite 452 in the Northwest Work Lofts and the sale runs both Saturday and Sunday, more details on Pariscope here.
And as the sun reminds us that summer may indeed be coming, one of my favorite local swimwear designers Angela Holstrom has re-launched her website with new styles and a snazzy new name, Frankie Four. She’s celebrating this Saturday with a launch party at retro Radar Hair and Records at 8 pm (SoDo, 2724 1st Avenue South) and a fashion show of her latest swimwear, plus frocks from Ruthie’s Uniform. The event is free, but bring cash to pick up a suit.
