After the careful review of nearly 40 applicants, The Bellevue Collection panel of judges has picked 11 local designers to participate in the 2nd annual Independent Designer Runway Show as part of Bellevue Fashion Week. In partnership with Fashion Group International, the runway show is designed to feature emerging talent in the Seattle market.

One of the selected designers will receive a prize package that includes $5,000 in cash to help build their business and a special display in Bellevue Square during the month of October. Last year's winner was local designer Carole McClellan.
