Sodo Fashion Show + Market

Split, by Neon Zinn, $125

Emerging Pacific Northwest designers have a place to shine on June 14 at Studio 18 Artist Collective at 3600 East Marginal Way South, during Heat of the Night, Sodo Fashion Show + Market. I love their lineup, which includes many of the most exciting talent from the region. There will be a fashion show featuring event organizer Carrie Gunnersen’s Flagship collection, Neon Zinn, Klad Apparel and Ozen Company. There will also be a designer market place with items from Faris, Tarboo, Rachel Ravitch, Jonquil & Mr Black, Iacoli & McAllister and thrillingly, many other designers who are new-to-me. (I love that.) DJ Jenni Potts and a local band will be providing the night’s music.

The event is organized by Gunnersen, Ciara Ramos and the peeps at Studio 18. There’s a suggested $10 donation at the door and all proceeds benefit the Seattle Design Foundation.
