Fall into Fashion Event with Radish Underground

Earlier this month in PDX there was an awesome event downtown. Fall Into Fashion.

I teamed up with Radish Underground and one of my studio-mates Alyson Clair for the event. We had a trunk show and there was also a fashion show! It was a great event complete with delicious homemade Watermelon Coolers!
 There was a lot of happy ladies trying on dresses and chatting about fashion, and generally having a great time! YAY!

The Mercury's Design Blog MOD did a write up on the 'Fall into Fashion' event, and called us "local fashion Pillars" PILLARS!!!  
Very Exciting!

Hometown Love!!!

I just delivered an order to Carlton, my hometown, and I am so stoked!!!
It seems like my hometown is growing up with me. When I lived there it was really a little farming town, but now it's an Oregon wine tasting mecca. 
There are now restaurants, wineries, and of course a little boutique.

I.M.R. Boutique is in a cute little cottage on Main St. They cater to both the locals, and tourists with price points from under $10. And they have Plus sizes. And everything in the shop is Made in the USA!!! 
So much Winning!

Here is a Hubris Apparel dress - now available at IMR, paired with a Carla Fox Necklace. I love it. 

Another shot of the goodies

and one last one

If you're in the area - go check it out!!!

S.W.A.G. tradeshow!!!

Yeah!! We went to SWAG earlier this week. It's a professional trade show up in Seattle, that connects wholesale designers ( Hubris Apparel) with buyers from stores in the region. It was pretty cool.

Our Sales Rep, Alisa Sloan of Cabana Reps, is a champ!! She actually broke her foot just a day before the show- but still packed up and drove all the way to Seattle. I decided to go up on Monday to check out the show, (I had never been to one,) and help her out if she needed to take a break, but she was totally fine- taking orders with an ice pack on her foot! She's kinda Amazing.

I learned a lot by going - all about signage and displays; and how awkward I am talking to strangers. EEK!
I finally met a couple of Boutique owners and Designers that I have worked with/around, but had never had the chance to meet, placed a few orders, and scheduled a trunk show at Sassafras up in Seattle for June 1st. 
All in all- a productive day, even without doing any sewing.

The Other Hales- an article by Marjorie Skinner for The Mercury

Here is a great article about Nancy Hales, first lady of Portland, and her passion for supporting locally made apparel and goods.
It's inspiring to see a public figure directly support the local manufacturing and design economy of their region.  And she's pictured in Hubris Apparel!!!
