Portland Fashion Week- Part 1

Portland Fashion Week has come and gone once again. Since Bubble is the go-to shop for flirty party frocks in Portland, we Bubble girls had to represent. We partied it up and rubbed elbows with Portland's most fabulous fashionistas, dancing the night away at an after party or two (or five). But it wasn't all fun and games – we worked hard too. I was the behind-the-scenes stylist, and head of the Buyer Relations committee with our amazing Bubble gal Susan by my side. Jessica sat on the Emerging Designer Judges Panel with Project Runway winner Seth Aaron and other local fashion experts, while our lovely ladies Josie and Donilee sat VIP, dressed in Bubble frocks of course, weighing in on what they would like to see gracing the racks of Bubble come Spring '11. We were beyond impressed with the designers that showed their collections on the solar panel runway and are so excited about bringing some of them to you via Bubble next season. Sorry to post a little late but we've been recovering from all the hard work and fun that was had! Here are some highlights from Thursday & Friday night...

 Two of our fave looks from Ms. Wood, winner of the Catapult designer competition.
The hat, the leather fringe skirt, the shoes, the bag... did I mention the shoes? We LOVE Ms. Wood!

Looks from the amazing Seattle based designer Jesica Milton, who we had the pleasure of
getting to know this past week. Her collection is so simply feminine and understatedly sexy and she couldn't be sweeter. A Bubble contender perhaps??

Portland designer La Vie by Michelle DeCourcy also Friday night.
