Seattle definitely took the Mad Men inspired theme and made it their own. I was very surprised and quite impressed with how they kept the fleece jackets and Birkenstocks in the closet. Just kidding. Sorta. Anyway, check out the awesome photos here by Benjamin Gay.
Hosted by Fashiontographer, VueSociety, and The Triple Door, this April 28th event served as the first District of Fashion event in Seattle, Washington. It also raised over $700 for the Down Syndrome Community and the Ruby Room.
$500 gift certificate from Mode Organic Salon (includes color and cutting with renowned stylist, Joe Carling)
