Look Who's Coming to FASHION FIRST!

We are beyond excited to announce that the traditional FASHION FIRST 'celebrity model' set will this year feature officers and Assistant Chiefs from the Seattle Police Department.  The policemen and women will be walking the runway in clothing from Ballard boutique Asher Anson.

FASHION FIRST loves the Seattle community - and when we sat down to think about who would be recognized this year, we couldn't think of anyone more worthy than those heroes that put their lives on the line to protect all of us each and every day.  According to Seattle Police Chief John Diaz, "The Department is humbled to be recognized by FASHION FIRST.  This is truly a remarkable event in that it is giving back to people in need, and a prime example of people working together for the betterment of the community as a whole."  But really, everyone here at FASHION FIRST is humbled that the SPD agreed to let us honor them!

Detective Renee Witt has been instrumental in making this happen AND she had the lucky job of casting the models! {Here she is with FASHION FIRST co-founder, Joan Kelly.  Thank you, Detective Witt!}  Did you know you can follow the SPD on Twitter too? Check out @SeattlePD for their behind-the-scenes tweets and we'll keep you up to date here and on Facebook and Twitter too.

We have a lot of surprises in store for the evening of September 16th when FASHION FIRST opens the doors at Showbox Sodo.  You won't want to miss this year's show!
