[EDITOR'S NOTE! Each year since forever, I've polled an annual selection of Portland's fashion-related industry insiders to get their takes on the best and worst of the past year, from trends to cultural moments, local and well beyond. I'll be spotlighting some of those responses on the blog, and in an upcoming issue of the Merc. Next up: Le Souk Le Souk's Anna Margaret!]

I’ll say this every year, whether it’s a trend or not, but I LOVE all of the woven and embroidered textiles that have been taking center stage. Traditional Southeast Asian and Guatemalan textiles are always glorious and exciting to see in a modern light.
