Portland Sewing's Fashion Forward

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Wed, May 8, 2013 at 10:14 AM

While I've had my head wrapped up in Open Season, Mercury's four-night series of fashion shows happening next week, there's another show that should be on the radar of those with vested (pun!) interest in new developments in local design. While our show features some of the best and well-established talent in town (seriously, our designers are ballers), Portland Sewing's annual Fashion Forward graduate show (along with the Art Institute's June 1 graduate show) offer an annual late-spring crop of mostly unheard-of new talent. Click over to MOD to find out more about the eight designers making their post-graduate debut this Saturday at White Horse Studios.

Xie of Inner Mongolia, China, brings a tribal influence straight from the steppes into her lines, colors, fabrics and details.  She aims to combine the modesty of the East with the modernity of the West.  “I’d like to present the every day classics accented by the cultural beauty of Mongolia; the easy chic tinted with a sense of earthiness that can embody elegance and distinctive style.”
