i’m going to get my haircut this morning after WAAAAAAY too long, so i’m posting a before picture, in all its freshly washed, boring and unstyled glory. i’ll post a side-by-side comparison once the transformation is complete.3
I’m really excited and proud to be working on this project for Cassie Ridgway at Mag-Big, a collaboration with her, Beth Olson Creative, and a whole bunch of my favorite badass Portland singers and rockers. Stay tuned over the next couple of months for more. Here’s Cassie’s designer statement:
Attention world: I am about to unleash a project that may be one of the proudest things I have ever had the honor to have worked on.
As many of you know, I divide most of my life passion between two things: apparel design and music. Over the last few years, I have been the fortunate benefactor of many incredible female musical companions who have— time and time again—shown their support for my endeavors as a clothing manufacturer (and as a musician). The women I am speaking of are shaping our city in such myriad ways: defining the silhouettes, the sounds, the style, the class, the brave, and the bold.
They are the female musicians of Portland, Or.
I came up with this project concept a number of months ago, and am truly excited to say that it will be a three month long journey of photographing all the most prominent and incredible female musicians I can. Our theme is a “Vanity Fair” style lookbook, featuring our Mag-Big Houseline Clothing (which we have always felt lends itself well to “stagewear”).
This project has been a huge collaboration between Mag-Big, Jason Quigley, Beth Olson, Blake Baer, Rachel Marie Rasmussen, and our venue, Archipelago.
And most of all, our models.
I present you all with the first series from The Greenroom Collection. All clothing was made by us, and is available in store or online.
As always: thank you for your support of local production and local music.
my friend’s amazing photos, and my friend’s amazing clothes. i know some pretty rad people.
