The top trends for Fall/Winter 2013 womens wear are pulled together from all of the premier runway shows in New York, Paris, London and Milan and shown in a DVD presentation.  Afterwards we will have a panel of experts from Seattle discuss the top trends and how they translate to the Pacific Northwest.  We are excited to announce our lineup of guest speakers as follows -

Moderator - Lizzie Parker, (Designer for the Lizzie Parker and Lizzie Parker Studio labels, NBC Fashion Star Contestant, and Business Development Manager, Womens for Zulily)

Apparel - Adam Moon - (Trend Director Nordstrom, Womens)

Home - Heather Kirk Riley - (Interior Designer, Kirk Riley Design, and FIDM Alumni)

Fashion Editorial - Lauren Foster, (Assistant Editor of 425 Magazine)

The evening will start with wine and hearty appetizers, and a chance to network with industry professionals. (Special thanks to Girly Girl Wines for their sponsorship here!).


For the first hour, (6:00 to 7:00 PM), Jilly Eddy, who founded the Art and Science of Lip Print Reading will interpret your lip print that you will be making on a Kiss Card from your own new Julep lipstick.  Julep is sponsoring their lipstick trios, so you can take home a boxed set of three shades and try out the newest addition to their beauty product line.

Then we will have the video presentation which is a highlight of the Fall/Winter 2013 trends identified as the most important from a group of high profile retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdales, and Macy's to name a few. You will hear from our experts on what you will be seeing in the Northwest...with a spin on how these trends carry into Home. Then the floor will be open for Q&A.

We also want to extend a welcome to all of the Pacific Northwest FIDM alumni that will be attending this event!
