As Seattle’s longest-running and best-attended independent fashion show, FASHION FIRST was founded to provide an affordable, but powerful, cutting-edge social media and marketing platform for the Seattle area fashion retailers and designers. FASHION FIRST is the intersection where designers, small business owners, and the fashion-forward consumers meet, creating a network of fashion enthusiasts unlike any other in this thriving city. Come be a part of the excitement as the designers and retailers strut their looks down the runway and raise money for this great cause.
In 2012, FASHION FIRST became an official non-profit foundation 501(c)(6). This enables us to continue our work, using independent retail as a platform for charitable giving for children in the Pacific Northwest. To date – Fashion First has raised $1,300,000 for children and students in Western Washington.
The FASHION FIRST core mission is to present an on-trend fashion show to promote and support Seattle retailers and designers while raising money to provide Seattle students with scholarships for higher education and help children with disabilities thrive in the outdoors.
