About the featured designers:
"Boho Republic was born in 2013, but I've been styling all my life."
Maybe it started when I got my hands on a pair of scissors as a child, or perhaps it was my first trip to a thrift store. In high school I wore men's jackets with skirts and Timberland boots, during college there an infusion of costume influence, and by my 30's I had amassed a couple dozen pairs of Mary Janes and more than a closet full of vintage clothing and accessories. When I started designing it was a natural next step. Deconstruction of existing items was the gateway, and I still incorporate recycled textiles whenever possible - I enjoy the challenge it presents. Two seasons per year, fresh prints and textiles. While the silhouettes don't change a great deal from season to season (that's why they're considered classic) the vibe is always fresh.
Designing and constructing for over 17 years, I live in Seattle and am fully dedicated to indulging in peoples individual style needs.
I am currently a jewelry buyer for Sassafras, a boutique in Belltown that only sells garments and accessories made in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I teach sewing and patterning at a local fashion school and I also represent talented designers from this area.
I believe our community is strengthened by artistic expression and local commerce, and that is my ultimate goal. Small batch designs made in the Northwest.
Stone Crow Design
The Capsule Collection
The inspiration for this Capsule Collection came from the Japanese dye technique called Shibori. I fell in love with the technique and wanted to use it to add more luxury to this already luxurious collection. So I chose to add it to the Goth Dye Legging, the Cocoon Jacket and to some surprise places just for the wearer.
Also with this collection I was also able to find some of the most wonderful eco-friendly fabrics. From the very luxurious feel of the all bamboo Distressed Armor Sweater to the cozy bamboo, organic cotton blend of the Unisex Tee and Tank. I can not forget the bamboo, organic cotton, spandex blend Ponte fabric of The Amy Legging. This collection just begs to be lived in.
Maison La Macon
La Macón has been an independent power house of handmade leather garments and handbags for discerning Pacific Northwest style seekers since 2000. La Macón’s creative roots take inspiration from the classic silhouettes of the 60s mod scene and are infused with the new wave years that followed. Think retro silhouettes with a dash of rocker style sprinkled in for good measure.
