Imagine: Elegance, excitement, and intrigue. These descriptions are just a preview for the International Academy of Design & Technology’s (IADT) IMAGINE Portfolio Gallery & 8th Annual Fashion Show.
On Friday, September 20th, the Stewart Street Room in Macy’s Downtown Seattle will be transformed into a runway show. With a red carpet, portfolio gallery, models and designers, IMAGINE is the black tie affair to kick off fall. The event’s director shared, “We want to create a glamourous experience for our guests. We are going for elegance.”
2013‘s show has some huge new developments. One is Fashion Show Director, Latasha Haskins. Haskins is no stranger to the stage. She was a plus-size model for Nordstrom and Macy’s and held the title of Miss Plus America 2010.
Along with a new director, comes fresh experiences for the audience. Something completely original is a children’s segment. Haskin’s excitedly comments there will also be, “New and unique entertainment that will be incorporated with the models.”
All guests are invited to enjoy the Portfolio Gallery free of charge. Haskins explains, “We want to showcase the story behind the designers. We want to personalize the experience what IADT is about; it is so much more than walking down the runway.”
