Earlier this month I mentioned Backbones, a benefit fashion show coming up next Friday (September 30) at MercyCorps to raise money for a support/mentorship community for people with spinal cord injuries and their families of the same name. Rather than focus on specific designers, this show will highlight a diverse little sampling of Portland retailers, including the previously mentioned Mag-Big, Mabel & Zora, and now, Brooklyn Industries. Stop by for a runway show of fall looks (including a few models on wheels), DJ Gregarious, guest appearances from the Rose City Rollers, plus an afterparty at Brix Tavern.

Some new-season outerwear from Brooklyn Industries.
