director’s letter Let’s be honest. Seattle’s never been at the forefront of any “Best Dressed” lists. The only lists we’ve made when it comes to our fashion sense was in 2011 being ranked No. 6 for MSN Travel’s “Worst-Dressed Cities in the World,” and No. 34 for GQ’s “The 40 WorstDressed Cities in America,” both claiming Seattle can’t seem to get past the “grunge years.” Now, three short years later, I think it’s time to take another look. Seattle has been working its butt off to prove that we know fashion. Since those rankings were released, the city has been fighting for our own Fashion District as most cities across the country do. Although it hasn’t happened yet, we have, however, evolved with fashion brands opening stores around the area such as Louis Vutton, Gucci, and Zara. Fashion events and trunk shows are happening more frequently to keep the city's fashion bloggers busy and new fashion shows are being created every year. This year, we have one of our very own. Seattle Style Weekend will include the first ever Seattle Fashion Awards and Northwest Hairstyling Awards featuring Vann.Edge Salon.

Menswear Designers of the Year nominees spread (pg. 44), Colorist, Avant Garde, and Hairstylist of the Year looks (pg. 50) and my personal favorite, the timeless fashion of vintage mixed with modern style (pg. 64). We know that our male readers love sporting tailored suits and the ladies aren’t afraid to face the danger of rocking a pair of heels across the cobblestone and cracked sidewalks. That’s why every fall issue will continue to be about style and looking good. We have injected fashion into each editorial including our “Decibel” section featuring cover girl Iggy Azalea, recently being named as a style icon (pg. 24) and Seattle area native, Mary Lambert (pg. 26), to the sexy style of the new Maserati Ghibli (pg. 37). Even for those who love reading DList Magazine but may not feel they know fashion; it really comes down to personal style. Everyone has their own, including myself, and as most people have noticed, my philosophy for style is taken from the words of Bill Blass, “when in doubt, wear red.”

What can I say? We love to acknowledge amazing people doing amazing things and one of the things DList Magazine knows, is fashion and style. This issue holds to that standard with our Womenswear and CHARITY MAINVILLE executive director @charityanna Photo by Ernie Saprio Photogrpahy

COOKING WITHOUT BORDERS Written by Ashley Roe Photos by Jorge Hernandez (food) & Shilohanne Photography (venue)

If you got 99 problems, let me tell you, having a great time and delicious food in Old Bellevue is not one. Opening this past August, 99 Park Restaurant offers a unique menu, crafted cocktails and an extensive wine list. It’s got a killer view and is located across the street across the street from Bellevue Downtown Park, which inspired the name along with its address, 99 102nd Ave NE. The globally influenced menu hints at Japanese,

Vietnamese and Latin styles prepared by Executive Chef, Quinton Stewert, who uses the best ingredients from the northwest. Pork Belly Bahn Mi Sliders are a shining example of the restaurant’s multi-faceted menu, complimented well with a twist on a classic specialty cocktail such as the Japanese Old Fashion. Aside from the unique menu, 99 Park’s nordic-inspired, simple elegance interior juxtaposes hard

and soft elements to create a modern feel. The industrial vibe with steel pipes and dark accent colors is broken up by a feminine touch, according to Operations Manager Philip Thompson, with chandeliers and flowers on the tables to soften the atmosphere. But the gorgeous custom tables, made by Plank and Grain, created from reclaimed wood, are the real stars of the space.


99 PARK DINE

THE FOOD SEARED RARE LOCAL ALBACORE TUNA The albacore taste wasn’t overpowering, lending the dish to be light and fresh. Chef Stewart said this item would be difficult to take off of the menu because it encompasses all the ideals of the restaurant.

MANILA CLAMS

The clams and broth both had a solid flavor that did not fall flat. While fries are an unlikely pairing with the dish, the oyster mayonnaise tied the two elements uniquely together.

SEARED BOK CHOY

The seared bok choy hit a cripsy and refreshing note for me. While the katsuobushi could have made the dish too salty; it added a distinctive Asian profile to the dish.

MISHIMA RESERVE WAGYU BEEF

The beef melted the moment it hit my tongue and left me wanting to come back for more. The tare sauce, which the meat is sitting in a bed of, heighten the meat’s delicious flavor.

“We are trying to create an atmosphere where its all about hospitality and remembering people’s faces and names. Warm friendly service and people coming back is what we strive for.” - Executive Chef, Quinton Stewert

GUEST EXPERIENCE “In Bellevue, there are big chains in Bellevue Square and [then] you have Main Street. There’s more of a local population of clientele, more recurring guests, more like you’re in a friend’s home. Rather be there than being half-a-mile away at the Cheesecake Factory, where there’s not a friendly face that recognizes you time and time again.” Executive Chef, Quinton Stewert 99 102nd Ave NE Bellevue WA, 98004 (425) 999-3991 www.99parkrestaurant.com

Then, leave the rest up to them. The chefs will come prepared with the ingredients and any additional items they may need to prepare the meal.

DRINK BOX HOUSE SALOON

NEW HOUSE ON THE BLOCK

SKITTLES (pictured)

After a complete renovation of the once standing Last Supper Club, the saloon-style sports bar has emerged as Box House just in time for football season. Improved with a drop down 180-inch projection screen and countless flat screens, the transformation is sure to be a touchdown. Guests can enjoy their favorite sports games in the new seating, which includes large booths that can easily seat up to 8. Resting on a brick wall base, the huge u-shape bar lined with both dark and light wood, mocks the décor around top of the room perfectly. The swinging wood doors on the bathrooms enhance the old saloon feel. Adding on a full service kitchen in the back, Box House will be having bottle-service brunches on Sundays during Seahawk’s away game. Being only blocks from the stadium, it is the perfect local watering hole to grab a quick shot before the game or make a day of it with your fellow Seahawks fans. 124 S Washington St, Seattle, WA 98104 (206) 748-9975 www.boxhousesaloon.com Written by Crystal Noelle Cook Photos by Daniel Hager

SOCIAL GATHERINGS KAISHO BRINGS ASIAN FLARE TO THE HILL Written by Crystal Noelle Cook Photos by Jorge Hernandez

Kaisho, Asian street fare and bar, is the newest venture in the bustling 12th and Pike restaurant row on Capitol Hill. The atmosphere is calm and orderly yet the bright bold colors of its Japanese style street mural invites the social scene to come alive. Upon entering, you will find the painted sake girl, J-Pop, there to serve you with a shot. The full size garage door windows that are lined with tall bamboo chutes provide a slight fresh Seattle breeze through its rich dark wood bar and cozy booths. Kaisho’s house sake expert greets guests as they walk through the large hardwood door and is there to discuss Kaisho’s house hot sake or one of the more choice selections placed upon the sake cart. Diners will salivate as they watch the Southeast Asian and Korean cuisine with an American twist being prepared in the open kitchen. The theme continues right down to its cocktail list that offers unique and tasty variations of classic American cocktails – Asian style of course. 1121 E Pike St Seattle, WA 98122 (206) 701-9130 www.kaishorestaurant.com

KAISHO DRINK

MIYOSHI MULE

SAKE SANGRIA

TAIYO TEA

SAKE-TO-ME One of Kaisho’s main objectives was to popularize sake; the Japanese alcohol beverage made from fermented rice commonly referred to as “rice wine” though its brewed more like a beer. The Hannya infused sake, featuring a devil’s head on the bottle, is said to represent an old Japanese wives’ tale about a sweet woman whose husbands cheating ways sent her into a permanent fit of jealousy and rage. The taste of the sake replicates the story with a sweet sip of sparkling plum juice followed up with a pleasurable burn of red pepper.

Miyoshi Mule 1.5 oz vodka Lemongrass syrup Lime juice Cock ‘n Bull Ginger Beer Mint garnish A Japanese twist on the classic, Moscow Mule. The tangy kick added from the house crafted lemongrass syrup mixed along with mint flakes, makes it so you almost can’t taste the vodka at all. A refreshing drink that you simply won’t want to put down. Sake Sangria 1 part House Sake 1 part orange juice Ginger syrup 5-spice syrup Lemon & orange garnish The fanciest “orange juice” I’ve ever had. The Sake Sangria is served in a large cabernet glass, stuffed and decorated with both lemons and oranges. Mixed with house ginger syrup, 5-spice syrup, and fresh squeezed fruit, the Sake Sangria is unlike any other Sangria in Seattle. Taiyo Tea 1 oz Shochu 1 oz vodka Lemongrass syrup Lemon garnish Similar to the Miyoshi Mule, the Taiyo Tea harbors quite a bit of the lemony flavor, minus the mint and ginger. Instead, Shochu, a Japanese distilled beverage (different from Sake because of the distillation) made mostly from barley or potatoes, is added in. This cocktail is high in potency, but due to the perfectly dashed lemongrass syrup, one would never know. KoKu 1.5 oz gin .5 oz lychee fruit juice .75 oz lime juice Maraschino cherry garnish Tart is an understatement in regards to the KoKu. With your sight, smell and taste senses exploding with excitement, this drink will have you continually smacking your lips together. By far my favorite off the cocktail list, this Aviation inspired cocktail tastes just like adult cherry limeade.

NIGHT FASHION Written by Charity Mainville Photo by Jessica Drake

As most the nightclubs in the Seattle area try their hardest to enforce a dress code, one stands out amongst the rest as having the keenest sense of fashion, not only by its guests, but also by the staff, the décor and even its celebrity hosts. Since the first night that Aston Manor opened, (celebrating its one-year anniversary this past August,) guests have been encouraged to dress their best. Some even pull out their bow ties and suits. The staff has made sure to do the same and to set the standards with the VIP hosts sporting fashionable suits and tuxedos, management in classy cocktail attire, bartenders in speakeasy ensembles with a contemporary twist and the beautiful cocktail servers in sexy black corsets and burlesque inspired bottoms of fishnets and garters. During the day, Maison Tavern (Aston's speakeasy inspired restaurant) is open for lunch and happy hour

22

for the SoDo area Monday – Friday, 11:30 am to 8 pm where well dressed business professionals meet to dine from its farm-to-table menu items or sip on a craft cocktail after a long day’s work. Fashion radiates from the Maison Tavern lounge into the main room with a 1920’s themed décor of oversized leather chairs, gold keys mounted cleverly along the divider wall and even a claw-foot freestanding bathtub where many photos of glamorous women have been taken. Smaller details across the venue add to the theme of fashion and luxury with a grandfather clock tucked in the back, old vintage books, black and white photos of notorious prohibition icons and vintage mirrors. A place with such fashion standards would of course attract dozens of style icons, celebrities and DJs from across the world including Scott “Lord” Disick, Drake, EC Twins, Brody Jenner, Michael Strahan and Dave Chapelle to name

a few. Some of Aston’s future events will include an “Orange Is The New Black” event with Taryn Manning, “Sons of Anarchy” event with several cast members and even a live 3D show. As Aston Manor marches into its second year, style standards will stay the same even with the expansion of The Ballroom, which will create 4,000 more square feet to party. The new space will focus on Trap music along with Top 40 and Hip Hop remixes, and is scheduled to open late fall. Before that however, Aston's 1923 Management will open its newest project that will be a 10,000 square-foot restaurant and lounge in downtown Seattle, scheduled to open Spring 2015, where you can expect the same attention to detail and to carry over its reputation for fashion and classic style. 2946 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134 (206) 382-7866 www.aston-manor.com

Th e ART O WRITTEN BY JAMES ZACHODNI

IGGY AZALEA DECIBEL I remember the email vividly. It was from an talent agency that I worked with quite frequently from New York. The agent was very good about showing me new and up-and-coming artists. In this particular email an interesting name appeared amongst the mix of electro-pop acts sprouting up across the country. It was October of 2011 and the name Iggy Azalea had yet to be uttered from the lips of disc-jockeys and hip-hop fans across the world, but the intriguing Aussie’s video for “Pu$$y” was attached to the email sent to me. Upon opening up the video I stepped out of the room but had the music playing through my speakers without seeing the video. Iggy’s voice sounded like a female MC, credible, and

her life and work. Iggy’s love of the art of hip-hop started very young. At 11 years old Iggy was infatuated with the music, especially the artists Tupac and Missy Elliot. At age 14 she decided she wanted to be a rapper. Azalea formed a group with two other girls from her neighborhood. She stated “I was like, I could be the rapper. This could be like TLC. I’ll be Left Eye.” Azalea eventually decided to disband the group because the other girls weren’t taking it seriously. Mentioning “I take everything I do serious. I’m too competitive.” An impromptu vacation to the US when Iggy was almost 16 years old ended up being a permanent move. “I was drawn to America because I felt like an outsider in

mix had nine tracks on it that included the single “Pu$$y” that had already gone quite viral by that time. Multiple videos began coming out from the release that quickly made Iggy an internet sensation. A model-esque white girl flowing like a southern rapper was something many people were intrigued by including former southern rapper T.I. Who signed Iggy to his Grand Hustle Records shortly thereafter. Soon after the release of Ignorant Art a handful of videos and singles followed suit. Slowly building up to the release of her first studio album The New Classic that was supposed to be released multiple times from 2012-2013 and was finally released in April of 2014.

“Fancy” quickly hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Amazingly during the same week Ariana Grande’s song “Problem” featuring Iggy hit #2 on the same charts. This has only been accomplished one other time by The Beatles. most likely from the south according to her flow. I imagined a young Foxy Brown, or maybe even a Trina reincarnate. But what I saw upon returning to my computer shocked not only me...but the rest of the world. Iggy, who’s real name is Amethyst Amelia Kelly, was born in Sydney Australia in 1990. Her stage name was developed in two parts. “I had a dog called Iggy, who I loved very, very much,” she explained of the pooch she named after Iggy Pop. “I got a name-plate necklace made in his honor,” Azalea added. “Everybody started to think that my name was Iggy so it kind of became my nickname.” The surname “Azalea” comes simply from the name of the street her family’s house resides on. Her mother worked cleaning houses and hotels, while her father was an artist and shared his love for the arts with Iggy. Azalea says her father “made her look at [art] as a teenager”, which influenced

my own country, I was in love with hip-hop, and America is the birthplace of that, so I figured the closer I was to the music, the happier I’d be. I was right.” After arriving in Miami, Iggy traveled and lived in many of the southern states where she developed the southern “twang” in her stage voice. Working with some dirtysouth heavyweights in her early years like members of the famed Dungeon Family quickly helped to develop Iggy’s hip-hop credibility. It must be mentioned that Iggy’s stature and look make people do a double take. Standing at 5’ 10” many feel like Iggy’s life could have easily turned to modeling. In fact she did have a brief gig with world renowned modeling agency Wilhelmina. She even was named the new face of Levi’s Jeans. Azalea’s love for hip-hop however would always dictate the direction of her life. Iggy’s first musical release came with the mix-tape Ignorant Art in 2012. The

Even though the release took longer than anticipated, the wait was worth it. Iggy’s now monster hit and “song of the summer 2014” “Fancy” quickly hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Amazingly during the same week Ariana Grande’s song “Problem” featuring Iggy hit #2 on the same charts. This has only been accomplished one other time by The Beatles. Azalea’s dreams of being a hip-hop artist in America have come true. She is quickly identifying herself as style icon. In July 2014, MTV announced that Azalea would be the host of the revived House of Style. It was also revealed that Azalea would be appearing on the seventh installment of the Fast & Furious film series set to be released in 2015. It is going to be hard to miss this Aussie in the coming years, but we definitely aren’t looking away.

Hail Mary Interviewed by Ashley Roe Photo by Autumn DeWilde

When you hear Mary Lambert’s name, the song rift of “she keeps me warm” may automatically ring through your head from Mackelmore’s and Ryan Lewis’ hit “Same Love.” However, the Everett native is sharing much more than a chorus, as her harmonic, smooth, rich voice is telling you all about herself in her first single, “Secrets” from her new album, Heart On My Sleeve coming out on October 14. Packed full of inspirational upbeat songs, the rising star is sure to make an impact and showing the music world that the Seattle area continues to deliver the best artists.


MARY LAMBERT DECIBEL When did you first know you wanted to be a musician? MARY LAMBERT: The titles for what I do vary. I feel more like a songwriter/performer than anything else. I love the process of turning raw emotion into a piece of art and then being the vessel for that nugget of emotion to reach an audience. I’ve always likened it to raising a child. You can birth a child and have someone take care of it for the rest of his/her life, but the reward for me is in the final product and seeing the impact. Growing up in the Seattle area (Everett), what was it about the city that influenced your inspiration in music? ML: The main influence from Seattle was the people I met and was inspired by. My whole band [Tim Mendonsa, Maiah Manser, and Heather Thomas] are all local musicians and have been my friends for years. Seattle just breeds good people. They are virtuosic musicians and incredibly kind people - the kind of people that remind me of Seattle and the loving community of musicians there. You were the featured artist on “Same Love” that was nominated for “Song of the Year” at the 2014 Grammy’s and also won a MTV Video Music Award for “Best Video with a Message” in 2013; how did the collaboration come about between you, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and what was it like working together? ML: Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, and I had a friend in common, Hollis, who sings on White Walls, and she suggested me for the hook on “Same Love”. The skeleton of the song was there, but they were just missing the chorus. I was actually a last resort for the song; they had asked a ton of people before me! Hollis called me around 2pm, Ryan sent me the track around 2:30, I took a shot of tequila at 3pm, wrote the chorus at 4pm, met Ben and Ryan at 6pm, and recorded the track at 8pm. The song was released the same time that samesex marriage was approved in Washington; was that inspiration behind the song/lyrics? ML: Yes, definitely. Ben wanted to write a song about the topic anyway, but because gay marriage was up for a vote, we paired up with Music for Marriage Equality, and released it through Sub Pop as a fundraiser. All the initial sales went to the campaign for marriage equality. You recently released your first single, “Secrets,” from your upcoming album, how does this compare to other songs you’ve released?

ML: “Secrets” is the first fun song I’ve ever written. Both of my EP’s (“Letters Don’t Talk,” “Welcome to the Age of My Body”) were all written about five years ago. At the time, I was experiencing a lot of disorder and sadness in my life, and it is really nice to release a song into the world from this new place in my life. What do you hope listeners take away from your new song “Secrets”? ML: “Secrets” is a song about being unapologetically yourself. I think there are a lot of people in the world that live inhibited by guilt and shame. I used to have a lot of anxiety about different aspects of my body and personality, and it prevented me from living fully. Over the last 3 years, I’ve practiced radical self-love, and the results of investing in myself are absolutely real and have changed my life. When I hear sad stories on the TV or in my newsfeed, I can’t help but think, “What if that person truly loved themselves? What if in loving themselves, they discovered true empathy? Could that change the world?” And I believe, wholeheartedly, YES. This song is an invitation to do so. Heart On My Sleeve is your debut album; how was the experience of making the album and deciding what direction you wanted to take? ML: Heart on my Sleeve is my dream album. It’s the album I always wanted to make. I wanted to make a pop album, sonically, but with a massive conscience. Every song has an intention and purpose. I sought out Eric Rosse, who is one of my favorite producers [Tori Amos’ Under the Pink], and we instantly clicked. We shared a similar vision about making a pop album with a completely new take. We also grabbed the talents of Benny Cassette [Kanye, Miguel] to co-produce and Mozella [“Wrecking Ball”] to co-write on a few of the tracks. My intention was to make an entire album of possible singles. I think it’s silly to make an album with 3-4 clear singles and the rest of the songs sort of just be fillers. Why not make an entire record devoted to songs that could be on the radio? What is the sound your fans should expect out of the overall album? ML: Sonically, it’s a pop album. There are some real interesting tracks that people might not be expecting. For instance, there is a song “Ribcage,” which features two female MC’s, Angel Haze and K Flay. Your songs tend to hold empowering messages in the lyrics; can you share some of the messages of the songs expressed in Heart On My Sleeve?

ML: A lot of the tracks have some dense lyrics and all of them are bursting with a story. When I write, I’m writing because I have something to say. It’s not about “Look at me, and how great I am,” it’s about impacting the listener in a tangible way. It’s about healing and connection. What is your favorite song on the album and why? ML: Hard question! Each song tells a specific story, and I go through phases about which one I’m most excited to tell. I love the melody and vibe of “Chasing the Moon.” It’s got a cool melodic hook and makes me feel like summer. It was also one of the most fun songs to write. I wanted to write a story song, sort of inspired by Tom Petty, and that process was new for me, and consequently very rewarding. With this being the fashion issue of DList Magazine, how would you describe your style and do you feel it is a representation of you music style? ML: As Mary Lambert, the artist, I have a very feminine style. I love dresses, red lipstick and glitter. God I love glitter. I really like 50’s style dresses where they sort of cinch in at the waist. For shoes, I love flats. Flats just make sense in my life. I perform standing up, and heels just don’t cut it with pushing a pedal down for me. I’d say my music is more raw and vulnerable than my performance look. For me, at least, it’s important to look really polished. A whole bunch of fans woke up this morning and came to this show to see me perform, and it would be unkind of me to just show up in a hoodie. Where are your favorite spots in Seattle to shop for clothing and accessories? ML: In Seattle, my go-to place to shop is Buffalo Exchange in the U District and the Crossroads on Capitol Hill for one-of-a-kind stuff. For solid basics, I go to Forever 21 (they have a bangin’ plus size department), H&M and Torrid. I should say that I buy a lot of stuff online from City Chic, which is a newer brand based out of Australia. They carry plus sizes exclusively and are very current. I wear them for a lot of red carpet stuff too! What’s next on your agenda after the album is released on October 14th? ML: Touring, touring, and more touring. All the touring; I’m a touring machine.

DECIBEL BLACKOUT ARTISTS

SINISTER BEATS Interview by Charity Mainville Photos by Sam Hon Photo

Seattle nightlife is probably far from becoming “Vegas” but until that time comes, some of the Seattle venues are bringing Vegas to us. Working with a Las Vegas based DJ Management Company, these venues are hosting Blackout Artists, a couple of which you may have heard. Spinning the beats at Aston Manor, Tia Lou’s, Amber Lounge or Foundation Nightclub are DJs, Ikon and Karma. Both men have residencies at some of Las Vegas’ biggest nightclubs, including Light and The Bank, and have also performed around the country and are currently producing their own music. As Blackout Artists, their main focus is keeping partygoers’ interests at heart and bringing a great party, which Ikon and Karma are experts at.

Describe your sound in one word. Antidisestablishmentarionism How do you feel Seattle responds to your music verses Las Vegas? We feel they respond in a very positive way. Both cities love to party, and we love to party with them. Are the clubs here more open to your music format? We don't have a set music format. We completely feed off the crowd in front of us. We will definitely push the envelope in Seattle. EDM is currently the hottest genre in music, do you feel the direction of music will shift to a different sound or is EDM here to stay for a while? We have seen a definite shift from straight EDM to a more open format style; now we play trap, twerk, hip hop and EDM all together. 

28

What is the best thing about spinning in front of a crowd? Spinning in front of an excited crowd that feeds off your every move is a giant rush. It doesn't have to be a huge crowd, just a group of people vibing off each other. It’s the best part of this job and why we do it. You are currently producing your own music, what can your followers expect to hear? Together we have a new mix series coming out in September called Blackout Radio; a monthly podcast available on BlackoutArtist.com. We are currently in the studio working on a couple remixes of tracks that people love but it needs to be a good club mix. If you could play anywhere, where would it be? Having played pretty much every market in the U.S., we are really excited about heading overseas. We love experiencing new cultures and seeing how

www.DLISTMAGAZINE.com

people react to our music in other parts of the world. We have never been to Australia; we’ve heard it's a crazy party! List the top songs on your playlist right now. Our original remixes of tracks like Disclosure Latch or Magic Rude.  Do you feel fashion and music coincides? Yes, 100%. Being a DJ and being on stage in front of people means you're a fashion icon whether you want to be or not. We both love fashion and being fashion forward. One of our favorite places to shop is Feature Sneaker Boutique that blends fashion, music and art together. Is there anything you have must wear when on stage? For us it all starts with a dope pair of kicks and a great watch. Everything else just comes together.


Introducing the lovely ladies of Seattle’s new party headquarters,

DOWNTOWN ESCALA

INSIDER’S LOOK

A JEWEL IN THE CITY

Seattle's most controversial residential building is now five years old, but the legacy that it has created is already legendary. The Escala is defining what a true cosmopolitan living experience is all about.

ESCALA DOWNTOWN INSIDER’S LOOK

THE DESIGN DETAILS To meet the challenge of a 30-story building with large, open floor plans and no central core, CKC designed an innovative dual system of shear walls and frames, using ultra high strength concrete and 100 ksi rebar for seismic resistance. Escala was the first structure in North America, and perhaps the world, to use 100-ksi steel for seismic reinforcing. It proved an excellent solution to the congestion that would have ocurred with conventional grade 60 rebar. You have probably walked past the Escala building on the corner of 4th and Virginia before. The building itself is very hard to miss. The base level of the building is covered with stone, precast concrete and columns with decorative cornices. High end boutique stores fill the retail space at the street level to juxtapose the type of residents the Escala wants to attract (San Francisco Giants’ star pitcher and Seattle native Tim Lincecum previously owned a unit.) But the ultimate resume builder for the building was the use of the penthouse apartment for the filming of the soon to be released movie “Fifty Shades of Grey”. Who wouldn't want to say they live in the same building as Christian Grey? Behind the flashy lights of Hollywood, the Escala is one of Seattle's crown jewels of architecture and design. John Midby of The Midby Companies was the visionary. His companies have had enxtensive experience in high rise mixed-use residential developments.  The team that as assembed to build this $370 million dollar project include:  its structural engineers Cary

www.DLISTMAGAZINE.com

Kopczynski and Company, architects Seattle’s Weisman Design Group Inc., San Diego’s Thoryk Architects and Seattle’s MulvannyG2 Architects. Interior design by DiLeonardo whose portfolio includes the Ritz-Carlton in Egypt, Crowne Plaza in New York and the Oterra Hotel in India . The 330 foot luxury high-rise is comprised of 274 homes and range from 900 to 4,500 square feet.The Penthouse’s are spectacular and the amenities include 25,000 square feet consisting of an exercise room and spa, theater, bar and lounge, wine cave and a remarkable grand entrance with a marble staircase that spirals up to the second floor. In addition to luxurious amenities, the homes feature a private elevator entrance, hardwoods throughout and Bosch appliances.  Many of the units has big views of both the sound and the city. Base models in the Escala start at around $400,000 and a penthouse runs between $4 to $6 million. www.escalaseattle.com 1920 4th Ave Seattle, WA 98101 (206) 432-3939

NEWYORK

TRAVEL TIPS

Way To Go: Although you may think a two-day road trip across the country would be fun and save you some cash, driving in the city itself is a dare you don’t want to take and would end up costing you a lot more in parking alone. Flights can be pricey during this time, but if you are flexible on travel days, Tuesday and Saturday are the best days for flying in and out. Most importantly, watch for sales, you can still get a cheap flight for around $300 round trip. DESTINATION TIP • Book your hotel room and flights in advance, the longer the better, especially for major events such as fashion week, Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, Tree lighting at Rockefeller Center and New Year’s Eve. The closer the travel date the higher the flights and hotel rates. If you travel on holiday days such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day, your flight will be significantly less. Why? Because most people spend the day celebrating and spending time with their families so the airlines are lacking the business.

32

It’s no secret that New York City is a fashion mecca. Hosting the most prominent fashion week in the country, New York Fashion Week, it is also home to the legendary 5th Avenue of luxury shopping. On top of the fashion, the Big Apple has some of the best nightlife, dining, culture, arts and history in the country as well. The months of September – December are some of the best times to visit for all of the above. You don’t escape to New York City for the weather during the fall season, but to experience the city itself. Although the city is known to be exorbitant, it also holds a few economical secrets some may not be aware of.

GETTING AROUND

As cabs and car service apps are the easiest and most convenient way to go, they are not the most affordable and can get you stuck in annoying traffic. If you want to stay above ground to take in the sights, buses are the cheapest. If you have seen the sights and are looking to just get from A to B quick and inexpensively, jump on the subway. However, make sure to read the routes correctly or you may end up in Queens when you were trying to get to Brooklyn. If all of the different colored lines seem too confusing, ask the (sometimes) friendly subway “concierge.” If you don’t mind the weather and can keep up with the fast pace, the absolute most cost effective way to get around the city is simply walking. DESTINATION TIP • You can get prepaid subway passes that have a flat fee for a week to a month if you are planning to use the underground train that long. It will not only save you money but also time with not having to get a ticket every time you take a trip.

www.DLISTMAGAZINE.com

REST

New York Hotels are expensive and very, very small. Some may not know when booking rooms that bed sizes normally run from twin up to queen. Double check when booking or you may end up spooning with your travel partner a little closer than you wanted to. An alternative way to go is checking out rental space in homes such as on Airbnb where you can get a whole place to rent or a spot of a tenant’s couch possibly cheaper than shoebox hotel room. Either way pricing will depend a lot on the area so branch out from the main tourists spots because each neighborhood is just a hop, skip and jump away. DESTINATION TIP • If you are adamant about staying in a hotel, look for older hotels that have gone through renovations. The “star rating” may not be as high, but that does not mean the hotel is not nice. One good example is The New Yorker Hotel that was originally built in the late 1930s, but went through a complete renovation in 1995. Since the hotel is now owned by Ramada, it offers cheaper rates and is conveniently located close to major tourist spots. I’ve stayed at this hotel before and had a great experience (event with 7 girls in one room) and there’s a great little New York bagel shop down the street. www. newyorkerhotel.com


DISCOUNTS

In NYC, the “tourists” spots are a representation of America’s culture. From the ancestry at Ellis Island to the famous Empire State Building, visiting each spot can get pricey so make sure to get the New York CityPASS. It’s only $106 and includes entry to the Empire State Building Observatory, American Museum of Natural History, the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art), Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island cruise. www. citypass.com/new-york If you have a passion for museums and have a Bank of America card you can continue your tourist trek with free admission to the ones listed at museums.bankofamerica.com. DESTINATION TIP • If it’s been your dream to see a Broadway Musical but can’t afford the tickets, head to the Times Square TKTS booth around 4:30 – 5 pm the night of for discounted tickets and a chance for better seats. Another option is to take the train to Brooklyn or walk the bridge (for free) and get matinee tickets the day before performances.

NO BRAINER

The one stop you should make time for is paying respects to the victims of 9/11 at Ground Zero. 9/11 is the one of the most unforgettable times in this nation’s history. The 9/11 Memorial is open every day from 7:30 am to 9 pm and doesn’t cost a thing. Make sure to get check out the website before arrival so you know what is and isn’t allowed. www.911memorial.org DIG DEEPER • The 9/11 Memorial lies above a world of history and facts that make up the 9/11 Museum. The 110,000 square foot museum was built underground to obtain access to the historic remnants of the World Trade Center, which are protected under federal preservation law. Together the entire 9/11 Project cost over $700 million to build and occupies 8-acres of the previous World Trade Center location. The two reflecting pools within the memorial are set in the footprints of the World Trade Center. It took 45 seconds to water-jet cut each letter in the 2,983 names of the victims at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, aboard Flight 93 and trade center bombing on Feb. 26, 1993.

DRESS

Despite that NYC fashion is not a secret, it does not mean there are not secret places to shop. Similar to a speakeasy bar, some shops do not have window displays to view and most times not even a sign. You just have to know that they are there and luckily enough, we are sharing one for the gents and one for the ladies. Located at 158 Rivington St. at Clinton and Suffolk marked with only a small, bronzed placard and buzzer, Alife NYC and Alife Rivington Club sells its house line of street wear men’s apparel and showcases some of the most hard to find footwear. Both long, narrow shops resemble the speakeasy feel with cherry wood interiors, leather couches and ostrich grain wallpaper. These hidden gems are open Monday Saturday, from noon to 7pm and Sunday, from noon to 6 pm. For ladies who love vintage, they must seek out a lone red dress on the second floor fire escape to find Shareen Vintage at 13 W 17th St between 5th and 6th Avenues. The dress is only hung when the shop is open Wednesday – Friday from 1 pm to 9 pm and Saturday – Sunday, from 2 pm to 6 pm. Once found and inside, ladies will find racks of bohemian-chic women’s clothing from the 1900s to the 90s. Just a FYI, there are no dressing rooms so make sure you have your undergarments on if you need to try something on, but you don’t have to worry about giving men a show because there are no boys allowed in this two-room secret spot. DESTINATION TIP • New York City is packed full of consignment shops where shoppers can find luxury brands like Louis Vutton or Jimmy Choo at a fraction of the cost including the nationwide chain, Buffalo Exchange, at 504 Driggs Ave.

DRIVE MASERATI GHIBLI

MASERATI GHIBLI

“You wanna Maserati?” Now you don’t have to work (as hard) b*#ch. The usual $100K + Maserati, jumped on the "affordable luxury" bandwagon with its Ghibli (pronounced jee-blee) starting at a mere $66,900. Italians know style and that is shown in Ghibil’s sporty yet glamorously-sculpted form connected with clean lines for a speed as fast as the African desert wind, which Ghibli translates to. The first Ghibli that was released in 1966 (priced at $19,000 and equivalent to the price of four Ford Thunderbirds at the time) and inspired the overall design of this third generation model proving a classic look never goes out of style.

BABY GOT BACK NO ROLLIN

SOUND OF MUSIC

It wouldn’t be luxury without soft leather seats with the same upholstery used on the two dashboard side panels and doors to create original two-tone combinations and an ergonomic three-spoke leather-clad steering wheel that enhances the sporty feel of the interior.

The Ghibli’s 3 litre Twin Turbo V6 was designed to achieve lower fuel consumption and emissions and still have a sporty performance. When you push the Sport button it gives it an extra 500 Nm available bringing engine speeds from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm.

There are five operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and Increased Control & Efficiency all controlled by its auto-adaptive software that is able to recognize driving style and road conditions.

As most cars are front wheel or all wheel drive, Ghibli’s five-arm multilink system is rear wheel for a comfortable ride and a sporty yes precise handling suspension.

Teaming up with high-end sound specialists Bowers & Wilkins, the sound system delivers concerthall acoustics through its 16-channel 1,280 Watt amplifier and 15 speakers system.

If the some of the steep roads of Seattle make you nervous of rolling back, you can relax. Ghibli’s comes with the Hill Holder System, which keeps the car braked for a short bit while you transition your foot to put the pedal to the medal.

“no producer is worth a damn if they aren’t trusted by their inner circle.”

how passionate he is about his stance on Fueled’s well being and business at hand. As we finish up coffee on the beach, I have laughed so hard I brought attention to our conversation. I have stayed an hour longer than I intended. I think I have told him too much about my personal life and my nights’ prior argument with my boyfriend. I get why good businesses’ choose him to assist their strategy and easily see why his production crew shoulders

next to him. I see why a producer these days needs to be much more than what people think they know. He is good and I feel pretty cool to meet another person who loves what they do, a person who tirelessly talks up his people, and a producer that makes me search for an updated definition.

DISTINCT CHARLIE PRICE

THE PRI C E I S R IG HT CLASSIC WITH A TWIST. NOTORIOUS HAIR DRESSER CHARLIE PRICE LETS DLIST INTO HIS WORLD OF VICERAL ART AND HIS THOUGHTS ON tHE HAIR INDUSTRY. BY CHARITY MAINVILLE PHOTOS BY MELANIE WATSON


If you know hair, then you know Charlie Price. Being nominated 23 times for NAHA [North American Hairstyling Awards] and being the first American to win North American Hairstylist of the Year award twice along with the first ever NAHA People’s Choice award, he is one of the most recognizable names in the North American hairstyling industry. Growing up in Denver, Colorado he attended beauty school during high school so he could make money to put himself through art school, but gained a love for hair “art” and as he described it, became “hair obsessed.” After school he worked in a local Denver salon, but came to have his own salon by age 21. Besides being recognized by the industry for his natural talent, he also gained exposure when he made his appearance on Season 2 of Bravo’s Sheer Genius that aired in 22 countries. Even though he was deemed the “villain” he is far from that. His no nonsense, passionate attitude and brass sense of humor is what has made him successful and a leader in the industry where today he is busy producing fashion shows, photo shoots, [one of his latest pictured] and being an educator to growing stylists. If you weren’t a hair stylist, what do you think you would be doing? CHARLIE PRICE: Well I wanted to either be a hair stylist, architect or porn star; the other two just didn’t work out and I fell in love with hair. Being nominated a total of 31 times in hair industry related awards, which do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment? CP: Winning Hairstylist of the Year twice in 2002 and 2008. So now that you produce fashion shows, do you enjoy the one-on-one with a loyal client more, or the hustle of dealing with multiple models? CP: I think what I enjoy most is the variety because I’ve been doing hair for 27 years. So I like the fact that I work two days a week in the salon when I’m in town. I teach, I do shows and product endorsements for companies, and now I’m trying to get back to the younger hairstylists and mentor and discover new people. That’s a partial reason of why we are doing the Northwest Hairstyling

Awards; to go out on the streets of the US and find the next generation of hairdressers.

HAIR BY CHARLIE PRICE AND LISA VANN

What’s the biggest fashion show you have produced or worked on thus far? CP: Prada, Dolce Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Donna Karen, Ralph Lauren, Caroline Herrera, but that was a long time ago and I was an assistant. Then I went out on my own and became the lead stylist for Jason Wu, Peter Som, Jeremy Scott, Catherine Malandrino, Cynthia Rowling, Benjamin Cho and Imitation of Christ. Who are the biggest celebrities you have done hair for? CP: Naomi Campbell. She was nice and lovely and then Joan Rivers. If there was one celebrity you could work on, who would it be? CP: Madonna! Of course. What are your future goals at this point in your career? CP: Again it would be to help mentor people so what I’ve started to do is a magazine called Beauty Underground, an online magazine. There are no advertisements in it and I can do whatever I want. It’s a place where I can feature people, but also it’s my answer to the fact that the hair industry has become so homogenized. When I came into the industry it was wild. The people that started Aveda and Paul Mitchell, hair stylists owning their own companies, were smoking, drinking and rock star kind of stuff. Now it’s become very sanitized. All the brands, besides Paul Mitchell, have been bought out by monster companies and have taken the interesting part out of the industry – the fun part for me. I want to bring back the underground crazy part of the industry instead of it being boring. If you see someone walking down the street and you see his or her hair, what’s your biggest pet peeve? CP: Extensions that you can tell are fake. I’m really unhappy with the way girls in the western culture look. It’s just a very boring, slutty and whorish look. Have some respect for yourself and look good. If you could define style as fashion for hair, what would you consider your style? CP: Classic with a twist. Very crafted hair that’s somehow fucked up. Have you had any crazy or off the wall requests from clients? CP: Well one was when a client asked me to mix up bleach for their pubic hairs. I sent it home with them.
