On Friday, September 23, Bellevue Fashion Week once again hosted the Posh Party Trend Show at the Hyatt Regency. Alongside the many other fashion shows occurring during Bellevue Fashion Week, the Posh Party Trend Show featured 2016 trends from the Fall 2016 Look Book, highlighting stores in the Bellevue Collection.
Before the runway show, guests were pampered in the foyer by a slew of beauty booths, Michael Bruce Image Consulting and a photo booth with media partner 425 Magazine. The participating vendors of the beauty booths included: Aveda Experience Center with hair and scalp massages, InSpa with Nail polish changes and hand/lip treatments, Macy’s with make-up applications, Obadiah Salon and O2 Blow Dry Bar with hair touch-ups, SEVEN the salon with hair touch-ups and Truce Spa with nail polish changes.
Attendees eagerly found their seats in the Ballroom for the runway show and enjoyed an introduction from Vice President of Marketing at the Bellevue Collection, Jennifer Leavitt. Leavitt reminded the audience that 100% of the ticket price for the show benefits Bellevue LifeSpring. She also gave a special thanks to Kemper Freeman of Kemper Development Company. From that night alone, they raised $38,000 for Bellevue LifeSpring. This goes towards supporting the over 3,700 children living in poverty in this community alone. The guest host for the evening was lifestyle specialist Monica Hart who gave one final introduction to the show with a Kate Spade giveaway.

The runway show was curated on the foundation of eight themes, incorporating fall fashion and style trends. The themes were: Game On, A Daring Pair, Fitted Fatigues, Pumpkin Spice, Borrowed From The Boys, Soft Luxury and Tan-Talizing. The high-energy show incorporated a variety of brands and stores from the Bellevue Collection. It was a glamorous way to get excited about Fall Fashion and its immediate accessibility in Bellevue.
