Significant events happening in Seattle this weekend

Seattle is an always and ever exciting vibrant and thriving city. You can be sure that no matter the day, week, month or hour there is always something interesting and fun going on. This weekend is no exception to significant things happening in the Emerald City and it's surrounding areas.

Friday November 19, 2010
The Bravern is located in Bellevue, it's an uber chic and fabulous spot for great shopping. One of the stores you'll find tucked away in this shopper's paradise is one of my MOST favorite designers in the entire world, Tory Burch. This Friday 11/19  at 5pm Tory Burch is kicking off the holidays by partnering with Dress for Success. This partnership is in honor of Global Entrepreneurship Week. Women supported by Dress for Success will light the specially designed Hasbro Lite-Brite holiday windows at several Tory Burch boutiques across the country- and one of them is at The Bravern! Friday evening, each participant from Dress for Success will be invited to select work-appropriate Tory Burch items of their choice, up to $500. Tory Burch will also donate additional looks from the collection to Dress for Success Worldwide! How awesome is that? The holiday windows will feature reindeer images made of Lite-Brite pegs framed in mirror, inspired by a photograph of reindeer taken in Russia. Tory Burch collaborated with New York-based artist Timothy Paul Myers to transform the picture into a sophisticated, colorful design that has a Pop Art feel. There are 46 installations, which took 4,900 hours and 2,025,000 pegs to create using seven Lite-Brite colors. I am looking forward to attending this wonderful event and celebrating the holiday season with my favorite designer!

  1. Lite-Brite art is really passe'. Thanks to Denver artist Lori Kanary for bringing Lite-Brite to the forefront over 10 years ago, including how to make them out of the proper material, which said guy above used. Way to be original Mr. Bigtime designer!
