Duchess Clothier – SE Portland

Posted by Rosemary on December 14th, 2009

Ok, so if the assignment is taking photos of hot boys in well fitting suits, I’m there. Duchess is a fabulous custom suit maker locally owned by Seyta Selter. The ladies of Duchess are helping men near and far dress in snappy suits and turn heads! If you’re planning an event (a wedding for example) or just want to have a special suit made to fit you perfectly, Duchess is the place to go. We had SO much fun with this photo shoot.Duchess_Clothier (more…)

Urchin-Redesign Bridal Dresses

Posted by Rosemary on November 4th, 2009

The first time I saw dresses by Sonia the designer for Urchin Redesign in the window of Xtabay, my heart melted. I thought, someone has designed exactly the type of dress that I would want if I were getting married! On top of that, Sonia is a really cool person and an artist in other media as well. The re-use of materials also speaks to my love of saving resources and updated design with vintage flair. Plus, she can take fabric from dresses that you have and redesign them for you, creating something new out of fabrics that have meaning for you personally. I can’t wait to see the unique looks Sonia and Michelle from Spruce come up with the the Eco-Elegant Wedding Show’s fashion show. Urchin Dresses can be found in one of our other favorite spots in Portland, Flutter on N. Mississippi Avenue.
