Century Twenty One - F/W 2018

 "Every season I look for inspiration from the world around me. As my 60th birthday approaches, I find myself thinking back to my first memories of moving to Seattle in 1962.


I remember how excited my parents were to take our family to The Century 21 Exposition - also known as the Seattle World's Fair. We visited all of the exhibits, rode the Monorail, went to the top of the Space Needle, and enjoyed the rides in the Fun Forest. Even though I was only three years old, it was a day I'd never forget. It was my first vivid memory of life in Seattle.

Nostalgia is a powerful motivator and I want to take our customers down memory lanwhile honoring the spirit of the 1962 World's Fair. The fair focused on modern science, space exploration, and a progressive future, wrapped up in the broad concept of the exposition. It would prove to be a defining moment in the history of the city and put Seattle on the world's stage.


We recognize The Century 21 Exposition's place in reshaping the city of Seattle. Fifty-six years later, the Space Needle is still the symbol of our city and is being renovated by some of today's most renowned architects, Tom Kundig and the Howard S. Wright family, both in the Baby & Company community. 


It's apparent by what surrounds us today that Seattle has become the city of "the future", the one dreamt up by visionaries in 1962. It's the same driving forces that were on display at the World's Fair that continue to put Seattle on the map. We'd like to introducyou to these visionaries and celebrate those who have helped shapthe NW stylethen and now." - Jill Donnelly, Owner, CEO, Buyer

  • Loved to read your story. Love it even more as my daughter and her husband moved to Seattle beginning of this year and I had the opportunity to spend some time in this beautiful town. Love its open minded atmosphere, the great book stores and the cultural life. And love all around it, the mountains which are not fare away – actually like in Munich, our hometown. Great place to live! Edda
