This past weekend I was, again, inspired by the fashion show presented by the students from the Bunka Women's Fashion University in Japan. I've attended the show every year since I moved out here. Each year is a visual treat and gets my creative juices flowing! Seattle is lucky to get to see this production, and it is all thanks to FGI Member Hisako Nakaya at Seattle Central Community College. She has been bringing the group back to Seattle for the last 9 years. Thanks Hisako!
Although you might've missed the Bunka Show, you still have time to get your tickets for Fashion First. One of Seattle's premiere Fashion Show's. For those of us who wish we were in NYC at Fashion Week right now, this is exactly what you are looking for. For tickets and details go to http://fashionfirst.ipower.com/.
If you go, let us know what your favorite collection or trend for the Fall is!

TCM Models has been around for 31 years (since 1979!) and has been a major industry player for both models and actors in the Pacific Northwest. Taking on a select 400 models and 100 talent, TCM uses a self proclaimed “boutique” approach to the business to encourage the personalized development of quality skills in their models and talent. They do this in an effort to provide their clients with assets, not challenges in working with TCM models/talent. That rocks!
Terri C. Morgan is the founder and director of TCM models. She is also a former model herself giving her the unique experience to see the industry from both sides: that of the model/talent and that of the agency. What an advantage that must give!"I have been very fortunate to have enjoyed the modeling world from an insider's viewpoint allowing me to share my experiences and successes with new models and talent. I love this industry and I want to pass along all of its rewards and opportunities." - Terri C. Morgan
TCM has recently launched a blog! The TCM Models Blog really extends that idea of the “boutique” approach, featuring some of their models right on the blog! What a great way to get the models more exposure! They also post about fashion related events in the Seattle area so no one will have to miss a single one! I know I’ll be checking back in with TCM Models blog for the scoop.

We chatted with Courtney and Sydney (pictured above) to get their thoughts on this season's trend and the show, in general.
Courtney: It was a lot of fun, I agree. I'm so glad Vogue continues to support The Bellevue Collection Fashion Week. It's important for our industry up here in the Pacific Northwest.
