The Secrets of New York Fashion Week 2010

17 Sep

Ah, fashion week. Unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to go and be there in person. If you are like me you were probably glued to your Twitter account, following the coverage from Fashion’s heavy hitters, living vicariously and enjoying every second. Every celebrity shoulder brush, every exclusive backstage sneak peek, every colorful show finale – it feels like you are there. I’ve gathered some of the best TwitPics from the past week and painted my own picture of the New York Fashion Week that was.

Up in the Air – Portland’s Got Style

11 Jul

When you think of stylish cities in the states Portland isn’t exactly on the top of the list. But that is what Karin Vitt of website PDX Neat Sheet is out to change. Since launching last year the site has become the number one source of fashion news, events and sales in the Portland area (and one that I frequent daily).

Friday night was the official launch party for the site, hosted by Crave Portland. Held at the top of the beautiful Hotel DeLuxe, the party featured a who’s who of Portland fashion insiders, including a fashion show and shopping booths featuring local designers. The night benefited Willamette Riverkeeper, a local non-profit committed to keeping the Willamette safe and clean.

My friend and I arrived a half hour after the event started and the rooftop was already packed. The crowd was buzzing with the excitement of the event, the clear skies and, of course, the free drinks. We made our way around, grabbing drinks and purchasing raffle tickets to benefit the charity. We were both excited to browse the booths featuring local jewelry designers, artists and authors.


One booth in particular caught my eye – Pasteesh, an affordable jewelry line developed by Carrie and Bette of Portland. The pieces were beautifully displayed on top of vintage books and artifacts (you know I’m a sucker for vintage). The colorful pieces are each made by hand, making each one as much of a treasure as the pieces with which they were displayed.



A number of other jewelry designers were on hand, including Sahlia.

And, of course, my friend Melissa couldn’t resist trying on these fun hats!


There was also a fashion show, featuring Portland boutiques like Mabel & Zora and Oh, Baby.


It was a great event, and I am thrilled I was able to attend. It appears that Portland fashion has made it’s mark, and it’s not going anywhere.
