AS ALWAYS, the fashions represented at the recent Fade to Light runway show were a sight to behold—but my job is to show you what the guests in attendance were wearing for a hot minute. Attendees were sporting looks from local designers like Crazy Wind and Alexa Stark and actual suits—an exceedingly rare sight in Portland. Naturally there was vintage to drool over as well. (Thanks Portland, for still being you!) As usual, the front row was filled with boutique owners and West Hills denizens who consistently support local fashion, and help keep the scene alive. Hope to see more of you!

  • Loving the leather skirt/trainers combo (left) andthe local Alexa Stark-designed top!


  • Anna of NW 23rd shop Le Souk Le Souk, and her beautiful daughter.

  • These friends twinned it up with very unusual looks. Animal print, black nylon, and red shoes have never looked so good!

  • More twinning in the form of wide brim hats and lots of black.

  • Proof that if you find a vintage emerald jumper, YOU BUY IT.

  • Loving the white fringe for a playful Loretta Lynn vibe.
