I'm really pleased to be participating in what is sure to be the most talked about fashion event in Portland. It takes place October 18, 2009, at the Ace Hotel in Portland. The most stylish hotel in the city will be hosting 35 of Portland's finest independent clothing and accessory designers, each in their own hotel room, for an evening of fashion, music, and art.

Tickets are $10 in advance/$12 at the door and can be purchased from the event's website

New friends and New Stores!

I just returned from Las Vegas where I was showing the Reif S/S '10 Collection at the Pool Tradeshow. My booth was in the Emerging Concepts section, which is an area set aside for up-and-coming talent so that they can have a trade show experience without having the huge financial set back of a regular booth.

I really enjoyed meeting and getting to know the other designers in the Emerging Concepts, and as we were saying our good byes on the last day I was feeling that "last day of summer camp" kind of feeling. There were some really great designers showing along with me, and I hopefully will have a sweet new wardrobe from them by Spring. I know that they are all going to do really well.

Here are the links to their sites, so you can check them out for yourself:

Ornamental Things
Everyday or Eternal
Ai for Ai
Every Little Counts

I count myself lucky to have met all of these great designers, and now I have people to visit when I go to LA, NY and Austin!
