This month’s Portland Monthly magazine reconnected with some locals that have since moved from the Bridge City to pursue their modeling career in places like New York, Milan and Paris. I have to admit I was very anxious to read the article that was tagged on the cover as “Sky-high style: Spring fashion for the jet set.” I love hearing about Portlanders that make it on the international scene. Add the fact that they brought them back home to try on some local fashion and I was all about it! The shots were great; they set candid black and white photos next to the modeling set-ups. The juxtaposition of the photos definitely gave these porcelain doll models a more human characteristic which is so often missed. The only part I was bummed about was the fashion itself. Don’t get me wrong, I loved what they were wearing (the vibrant Marni shift-dress paired with the big colorful bangles draping down both arms was an eye-catching beauty), but I was sort of hoping they would bring them back to Portland to support all the wonderful designers coming from our city streets, not the labels we see in all of our fashion magazines on catwalks oceans away.
