AND THE SEASON of the runway continues! Beloved and wonderfully eccentric designer Adam Arnold presents his and hers collections for fall (and forever after). Taking a break from his usual venue—the spacious and shoe-free studio he keeps on SE MLK—this show will cap off the long-running Fashioning Cascadia exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Craft.

In fact, part of the work Arnold will debut was designed at an impromptu residency he undertook at the museum last month, drawing on his proximity to the exhibit and the wandering eyes of the passing public for inspiration. As one of the designers showcased most prominently in the exhibit (and one of its loudest champions), Arnold's show is a fitting finale. It may be a while until the industry gets lavished with such attention again—let's seize it. Adam Arnold Fall Show, Museum of Contemporary Craft, 724 NW Davis, Wed Oct 1, 7 pm, free (but must register for limited tickets at, all ages
