If you're in Seattle this Thursday night through the weekend, consider adding to your agenda the Northwest Film Forum's fashion film festival, curated by our homegirl Laura Cassidy, writer and style editor for Seattle Met magazine (and a contributor to the first issue of Pacific Standard Magazine).
Thursday night's 60s-themed opening night party will be at Kaleidoscope Vision on Capitol Hill (side note: if you haven't yet you need to check out the shop -- the KV ladies curate a mean selection of vintage gear; I snapped up a fantastic circa-1980 jumpsuit there last week). In addition to free food and drink, a selection of fashion shorts selected by yours truly will be screened throughout the night, and on Friday night Strath presents his selection for the festival, Purple Noon. Films by other Seattle creatives will be presented throughout the weekend.
Sooyeon Lee: Grand Slam from Matthew Donaldson on Nowness.com.
One of my selects for the opening night party.
I've taken a lot of style inspiration over the years from screen characters (if forced to describe my own personal style: Breakfast at Tiffany's meets Blade Runner). So I'm really excited to be a part and hope it's the beginning of a long tradition.

The opening party goes from 7-10 pm on Thursday night at Kaleidoscope Vision, 1419 10th Ave., between Pike and Union (RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org). More information on the films (and tickets) can be found here.
