This year’s Fall Fashion Week 2010 at The Bellevue Collection will bring to life the pages of the country’s leading haute fashion authority, Vogue magazine, Aug. 24 – 29, 2010. The week will culminate with the second annual Front Row Fashion Presented by Vogue and The Bellevue Collection on Saturday, August 28. This on-trend runway show was the highlight of last year’s sold out Fashion Week and is anticipated to make an even more dramatic statement this fall.

In addition to a special Vogue fashion presentation, this fifth annual event will include a special CFDA Exhibit, August 16 – 29. Through a partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Assouline Publishing, Vogue will present the American Fashion Collection as an exhibit at Bellevue Square. The fashion installation will showcase still photography from the American Fashion Collection series of books.

“Vogue brought a critical national perspective to the Northwest last year with the Front Row Fashion event,” said Jennifer Leavitt, vice president/marketing, The Bellevue Collection. “We are thrilled that they will be returning for the runway show and bringing their expert fashion advice. The addition of the new CFDA Exhibit and book signing brings a new dimension of excitement to the week. We know Fashion Week will be the destination for fashion in the Northwest.”

The Front Row Fashion Show will benefit The Moyer Foundation. “The Moyer Foundation is a wonderful organization with a strong following,” said Leavitt. “We are honored to work with them this year. 100% of all of the ticket sales for Front Row Fashion will be donated to The Moyer Foundation and we hope that our partnership will lead to a strong donation to this worthy cause.”

"We are honored to be working with Kemper Development Company locally and Vogue nationally to help raise awareness and support for our mission--helping children in distress,” said Karen Moyer, Co-Founder of The Moyer Foundation.
“The Moyer Foundation supports many programs on Seattle's Eastside and nationally through Camp Erin, and Fashion Week is a great opportunity to share our story, while bringing the community together for fashion, fun and philanthropy."

About The Moyer Foundation and Camp Erin
The Moyer Foundation – (a public, 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization) was founded in 2000 by Major League pitcher, Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen. The Foundation’s mission is to help children in distress. With the community’s support, The Moyer Foundation creates and funds programs that directly serve the needs of children in physical, emotional or financial distress. The Foundation’s largest initiative is Camp Erin, free bereavement camps for grieving children and teens ages 6-17.

Camp Erin is a traditional, fun weekend camp combined with grief education and emotional support. With 36 camps in 23 states and one in Canada, Camp Erin is the largest bereavement camp in the country, serving more than 2,500 children annually. With the community’s support of the Campaign for Kids, The Moyer Foundation plans to establish as many as 60 camps nationwide- including at least one camp in every Major League Baseball city.

Camp Erin is facilitated through a long term partnership with a local bereavement agency. Together, these organizations and The Moyer Foundation raise funds to help bring the healing experience of Camp Erin to children in more communities each year.
