ON SATURDAY, May 12, 13 of the hottest names in Portland’s apparel and accessory scenes will show their latest designs at the Mercury’s eighth annual Open Season spring fashion show. In addition to sharing a representation of the talent within Portland’s community at the event itself, these photographs portray what happens when you mix local designs with boutique and vintage shopping, seven beautiful girls, and one rambling, light-filled Northwest Portland house.
