Independent Fashion – Out of the Maine Woods
The support for local designers in so many creative communities across the country just makes our hearts sing. We are behind every collaborative community in spirit, and fueled by inspiration from stories like this one about Detroit on NPR a few days ago. Another community chock full of creatives cheering and supporting each other onward is beautiful Portland, Maine. This weekend independent designer Meredith Alex, a.k.a MadGirl, presents a runway show of one-of-a-kind creations of re-worked hunter’s plaid, camouflage, and flannel; the models will be rocking vintage L.L. Bean boots – and yes, of course there will be live music, drinks and more. Portland darlings, I miss you, have a blast! Read more about MadGirl and the event in the Portland Press Herald.
