Now, let me say this real quick: this is the first time the whole team (Laidback Allure) has been in one place at the same time and it was documented. Very rare photo, so let’s take some time to appreciate it. Haa.
Anyways, Bravern Fashion Week went smooth. It was something refreshing, due to not only it being the first time The Bravern shops hosted a fashion week, but a lot of good friends and energy throughout various events. To add some context, The Bravern is home to several luxury retail shops, including Louis Vuitton, Gucci, David Lawrence, Hermes Neiman Marcus, which houses brands like Tom Ford, Balenciaga, and so many more stores, so it only makes sense for them to host a fashion week, right? I attended the opening party, luxury retail shopping panel, surrounding topics like fashion, music and art and of course, the runway show.
The panel was moderated by my friend, Nelson Yong and featured Matthew Klutznick, General Manager of The Bravern, Richard Samuelson, Vice President/ General Manager of Neiman Marcus in Bellevue, WA and David Lawrence, General Manager and owner of the David Lawrence store at The Bravern. The panel was probably my favorite event. I’ve been talking about improving the lifestyle and luxe of the Puget Sound Area in Seattle for along time. It’s a long story so I won’t go into it too much but what was discussed just resonated a lot with me and the conversations I’ve had with people at dinners, events, etc.
Towards the end of the night, we really gravitated to Matthew, we’ll be having lunch at John Howie’s to talk about how we can either partner or be an asset to the fashion week next year. I’ll keep you all updated on that.
