Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection returns Oct. 8 – 9 to celebrate its 75th anniversary, host stylish live and virtual events, and benefit local nonprofits

One of the Pacific Northwest’s most celebrated events will be back this fall as Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection returns Oct. 8 – 9, for a weekend of fashion shows, stylish events, and top-tier shopping. This year, fashion-forward guests may attend the premier events, Posh Party Trend Show and The Collective Runway Show, in-person or virtually via livestream. All 2021 events celebrate The Bellevue Collection’s 75th anniversary by showcasing seven decades of fashion. With 100% of ticket sales benefiting two local nonprofits, Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection is a great way to stay in style while bettering the surrounding community. Tickets are now available and are expected to sell quickly due to this year’s reduced seating capacity.

All ticket sales from the event will directly benefit local nonprofits Bellevue LifeSpring and Dress for Success Seattle. Bellevue LifeSpring provides support to low-income children in Bellevue with programs that provide food, clothing, educational scholarships, and emergency rent assistance for families. Dress for Success Seattle is a nonprofit that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, development tools, and professional attire to thrive in work and in life. Capital One is proud to partner with Dress for Success Seattle.

Each year, we strive to make Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection accessible and inspirational for our community. We’ve been able to take the best from last year’s virtual events and combine it with our traditional in-person format to create a Fashion Week with the opportunity to view the shows like we’ve never had before, said VP of Marketing for The Bellevue Collection Jennifer Leavitt. In addition to raising funds for two area nonprofits, Bellevue LifeSpring and Dress for Success Seattle, this year’s Fashion Week celebrates our 75th anniversary with a special seven-decades-of-fashion theme. We hope our Fashion Week crowd will join us in celebrating this monumental occasion and supporting these two truly good causes.
