2018 Couture & Cars – Seattle fashion beyond the grunge  

Last month I attended a local fashion show, the 2018 Couture & Cars showcasing designers from the Northwest region and cars from Lemay – America’s Car Museum, the whole show happened inside the museum creating a different experience and a fun mix for all kinds of taste. 

I have to say that when I think about Seattle fashion the first thing that pops in my mind is a grunge and hipster style. The designers showed a whole new perspective to Seattle fashion that goes beyond the traditional flannel in faded colors.  

Let’s get to the fun part and talk a little about the designers and show my favorite pieces.  

Chany Venturini  

I love how she plays with prints and textures creating pieces so glamorous and sophisticated.

This collection is literally out of the box. All the pieces are made with latex instead of the traditional fabric, giving the runway a mix of colors and sensuality.  

Designs by Thor  

With inspirations from the 80’s Thor created a line of blazers and suits, with a lot of colors and different silhouettes. It’s fascinating how he plays with fabrics and prints, taking the average piece to a whole new level.  

Heide Fish Swimwear  

Her patterns and tailored cuts offer many unique styles. She creates chic swimsuits that follows the latest trends in fashion around the world, with a sensual and glamorous final touch.  

Lisa Marie Couture 

This was my favorite line in the whole show. I’m a person who always falls for details- her creations have a lot of them, each one of her pieces are art on the runway.
