Kathryn, she with her finger on the pulse of Portland's fashion scene, just sent me a notice about a showing of Portland designer Adam Arnold's spring collection at Design Within Reach. (The photo at left is from his fall '06 collection.) According to the press release:
"Inspiration and influences for Adam's Spring 2007 show include maritime life, modern folk aesthetics, intricate knot work and the classic look of Shelley Duvall. At DWR, he will show up to 20 ensembles of men's and women's clothing designed and created by Arnold in his Southeast Portland studio."
Sounds like a must-see for you fashion mavens out there. I'm especially intrigued by the "maritime life" and "knot work." Yo ho ho!
Details: Adam Arnold Spring Fashion Show at DWR. Fri., Mar. 30, 7 pm. DWR Portland Studio, 1200 NW Everett. Phone 503-220-0200.
