History

Chance was established in June of 2009 by Active Entertainment in response to the exlusive nature of the Fashion Industry by creating a monthly, inclusive, hands-on networking event for the Fashion Community. Since then, AE has produced Chance Fashion every month for a consecutive 6+ years, and is now the longest running monthly fashion event in the country. They have toured to Hawaii, San Francisco, and Portland, and have launched as a quarterly event in the city of Olympia. Chance Fashion is also a 2 time recipient of the Office of Arts & Culture Seattle smART Ventures Grant, has receied reviews in Seattle Gay News, Ask Miss A, Mode Magazine, and hosted events at Macy's Downtown Seattle, Lemay American Car Museum, Emerald City Trapeze Center, and more.

What We Do

We provide a monthly resource & outlet for the local Fashion Community to come together, practice their trade, and build their local Fashion Industry. Our annual monthly Event Calendar includes all types and genre's of Fashion in order to include all shapes, sizes and styles. Each Event is marketed in a 360 degree format with follow-up coverage extending through each month. Chance Fashion also supports other Fashion Shows, Non-Profit Fundraiers, and regularly coordinates Networking Events, Photo Shoots, and other opportunities dedicated to Fashion Artists. Ticket sales from each event are distributed on a Talent-First payout policy to ensure Participants are compensated before any of the Event Staff or Organizers.
