So Pdx Collections was a complete success. Months of preparation gave way to a show that we can all be proud of. The event took place outside our studio, right in the heart of industrial North Portland. A trian even scooted by during the show, it was too perfect. We are already in talks for the next one...
Below are some of my favorite shots from the runway.
So Pdx Collections is almost here!! I don't think I have ever been so excited about a fashion show. Alyson, the one and only Clair, and I recently moved into a new studio. We are literally just down the hall from 2 of the other 3 designers. This building where our studio is just happens to be completely filled with people doing something creative. Among clothing designers- we have photographers, Ariel artists, an exotic dance studio and someone who makes life size puppets and props. So cool!
In other exciting news I am going to Paris! I still am in shock. But my ticket is all ready and paid for! I am obsessed with Paris street fashion. This is the clientele that I dream to have. They are so chick in an absolutely effortless way. Familiar with The Satorialist? Here are some photos of my latest fav "Parisian" looks that he's photographed.
As a gal that loves fashion, in every way, shape and form- if it were a food it would top my love of cheese- I think it's only time I start sharing my ideas and designs with the universe! I've stayed true to Portland since day one of my apparel design schooling- though I have to say that my real education began when I was 4 and my sister and I would put on our grandmothers jewelry and prance around like we were royalty. This being said, I want to further my knowledge and explore outside my city and soak up style from anywhere I can.
Step one: Choose a selection of photos from past collections I've done and post them here for fun, feedback and experience but most of all to chronicle a desire to fulfill my dreams.
