Historic Ballard.  A gritty, vibrant neighborhood; which boasts some of Seattle’s liveliest bars, funky music venues, boutique shops, and bistros. Moody & eclectic, Ballard lures you in with its cobblestone streets, weathered warehouses & fishing boats nestled in the fog. Our photo shoot pays homage to its independent spirit, which feels a little decadent and rebellious at times, much like our fashion picks for this edition.
