Wear in the World

Hot on the heels of the ready-to-wear presentations in New York, Milan and Paris, design students will be showing their own stylish creations at the Art Institute of Seattle’s 12th-annual fashion show. As always, the entire production—lighting, set design, etc.—is also handled by AIS pupils. This year’s theme is “Wear in the World”—right on trend, since global is now hip in a huge way. The trend can be traced back to Yves Saint Laurent’s safari jackets in the ’60s. And today, cutting-edge designers like Proenza Schouler and D&G have embraced the international look with a zest, sending vibrant ikat prints in blues, oranges, and reds down the runway. Tonight, guest MC Kendra Todd (of The Apprentice) helps promote Seattle’s rising sartorial talents. ERIN K. THOMPSON
