The September Issue of 425 Magazine

YAS! I made it into the glossy pages of the September Issue of 425 Magazine! I am a centerfold, finally!

425 Magazine’s subtitle is “The Eastside’s Magazine,” and let me tell you, this month is full of fabulous features, such as “425 Women to Watch 2023”, “Have It All This Fall in Tri-Cities,” and “Bellevue Fashion Week.” The Eastside is ready to roll out the red carpet for Fashion Week; the question is, are you? Plus! This month’s issue focuses on “Women to Watch,” which is so freaking awesome because you know I’m all about supporting my fellow female entrepreneurs. I’m beyond thrilled and honored to be included in this edition! Again, I say “yes” to being in good company with strong female leaders in the community.

I was interviewed by the incredible Andrew Hoge, who boasts an impressive array of talents as a creative director, event designer, fashion and lifestyle writer, and digital strategist. Andrew and I share a longstanding history, as he was once a student of mine at Seattle University where he co-founded the Fashion Club (to which I have had the honor of serving as their Faculty Advisor for the past 16 years). I am immensely proud to have mentored Andrew throughout his undergraduate journey, as he consistently demonstrated excellence in all facets of his work – from organizing fashion shows and events to coaching models with exceptional skill and talent. “Yes” to nurturing creativity and fanning the flames of young artists so that they too can thrive in their professional careers!

Do you want to learn more about what Andrew, and I were dishing about? “Yes?” Well, you can find our chat in the “Inside Scoop-AH, That’s Style” section – it’s a whole two-page interview! Okay?! I promise, it is a Dolly and Elton had a baby Pixel Dust Treasure Hunt!

Here is a some of what Andrew had to say in our interview:

“While running an image-consulting business ([email protected]), Arnold strives to help each client, ranging from C-suite leaders to actors and philanthropists, achieve their personal, lifestyle and professional goals. Informed by years of experience in film costume design, Arnold is sought after by clients looking for personal styling, wardrobe organization, travel planning and confidence coaching, and hair and makeup. Soon she will offer personal branding photo shoots that she will creatively direct herself.”

The Bellevue Collection hosts the annual fashion event with multiple days of runway fashion and events related to style, trends, and designers over the course of several days/weeks. I was able to attend The Collective Runway Show in Bellevue, WA over the weekend. On every seat in the event space was a swag bag, full of gifts for guests and included in the swag was a copy of the September Issue of 425 Magazine! How timely, right? “Yes!”

Thank you to 425 Magazine and Andrew Hoge for this fantastic opportunity and for capturing my style and story and to Studio B Portraits for these fun photos of -“yes” me!
