Tacoma is not my side of the City but when Fashion Distrcit NW invited The Citizen Life to cover Cars and Couture Fashion Show presented by Architech held at LeMay- America’s Car Museum, I knew I had to make an appearance.
Okay, so I wasn’t modeling, but from the vibe I got as soon as I walked in the door, I might as well have been. My guest and I got to walk down the runway itself as we mingled with other fashionistas such as Frilancy Hoyle and the Seattle Gents.
Designer line up read the following: Dawnamatrix followed by Gustavo Apiti Couture, Dream Dresses by PMN, Carole McClellan and closing the Runway was Lisa Marie Couture. There was also a Vendor lounge where featured artist and booth vendors were able to showcase. I never miss the opportunity to get up close and personal with the Designers and their wonderful designs- Follow us on Social Media to Get the INSIDER SCOOP.
Get Set, GO!

Keep in mind that although it may seem like a long Runway- Julie Dang, event mc, did announced a 20min intermission. Which every Fashionista knows it’s perfect time to freshen up your lipstick and mingle with the show attendees and let’s not forget about the bubbly refill.
