West Seattle scene: Young designers model their creations in runway show at VAIN

These creative young West Seattleites have been studying fashion design for the past quarter, and tonight at VAIN in The Junction (WSB sponsor), they took to the runway to show off their creations. Proud relatives were there to cheer, and snap:

The nineteen students have been learning design in the Miss Reese Fashion Club at West Seattle Art Nest. She of course was at tonight’s show too:

Her students created fashions based on artworks that they had seen and appreciated.

Miss Reese also teaches at some local schools.

    This is absolutely wonderful!  Did not know of this opportunity for new/ young fashion designers and, what  great news to learn they are here in West Seattle!  Gives me hope that Our city and  cherished West Seattle neighborhood may survive all the recent turmoil of growth. There is way too much depressing news  in the headlines.  Stories like this show the young folks may help lead  us in finding our way forward. The  styles are very appealing.  Kudos to the young designers!  You have given me hope and made my day !

    Love Miss Reese! My daughter learned to sew with her, and has made some amazing creations. Wonderful classes for budding fashionistas — definitely recommend!

    Ms. Reese’s fashion design classes are incredibly unique and we feel so lucky that our daughter has Marisa as a mentor.  She is influencing literally hundreds of young people in our community (at multiple elementary schools) to develop a love of fashion and a confidence in their own creativity. She nurtures their individuality, encourages them to take risks and make mistakes, and holds them accountable for their actions too. Her passion is contagious and inspiring,

      I can’t thank Madison, Peyton, Hannah and Victoria enough!! You made them all feel so special! They are going to be talking about this for awhile…and now I’m going to have to step-up my hair game on future runway days! 😂

    What a wonderful opportunity for young girls in the community!!  Having businesses like Vain in the community is what makes Seattle such a great place to live.  I wish businesses in my community were more involved with such diverse opportunities for our youth!!

    Looked like a fun and memorable event and I’m sure each young participant will use this experience in their futures no matter their choice or direction in life.  VAIN is a great venue for all involved, Thank You, Victoria for extending such generosity to help stimulate potential in these young minds. VAIN is a fine representative for WS.
