After two years establishing itself as one of the jewels of the late winter fashion calendar, Elizabeth Mollo (also a contributor here on MOD) has announced the lineup for an August companion show—August 28 at the Crystal Ballroom, that is. The show will feature new collections from repeat performers like Bryce Black, Chicago Harper, and Emit, as well as first timers like Michelle Lesniak Franklin and Quick Study.

I'm especially stoked to see Quick Study on there. I first met the designer, Caitlin McCall, at the Portland Sewing graduate show last month, and was so impressed with her clever, realistic, and cool solutions for bicycle-friendly womenswear that I featured her in the bike issue of the Mercury that just hit the streets today. Glad I'm not the only one who was impressed! Check that out here.
