InspirAsian Fashion Show

The International Examiner celebrated their 35th Anniversary at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center on Pier 66 this evening. The agenda included a live auction, dinner, and a fashion show featuring local Asian designers.

Five designers were chosen to showcase their collection. They included:

Bo Choi: Graduate of the University of California at Davis in Fashion Design and Studio Art. All her pieces were in black proving that one girl can never have too many LBD's.

Vivian Hsu: Vivian has a broad background when it comes to fashion. I've seen her photograph the hottest fashion shows, I also know that she's model, and now a designer too. She's well rounded when it comes to fashion so I wasn't surprise to see her exquisite collection of evening gowns. Each gown portrayed elegance and rich jewel-like colors.

Jessica Louie: After earning her B.A. in Architecture from the University of Washington, she will be continuing her education and pursue a fashion degree from Parsons School for Design. I loved the simplicity of Jessica's collection and her collection was very fun and flirty with full shirts and bouncy dresses that strut the runway.

Kelly Su: After graduating from the Art Institue of Seattle, Kelly spent the past 6 years designing for Nordstrom's Halogen and lingerie label. Pieces from her collection were versatile from day to evening and was made for the girl on the go.

Lennura Zhataganova: As an international student from Kazakhstan, she will be graduating from Seattle Central Community College in Apparel Design this June. Her collection was inspired by fabric colors and textures which explains the memorable yellow hip length coat.

It was truly inspiring to see the talents of the Asian community together in one evening and the event was overall fun and enjoyable.
