For the past few weeks I have been very busy organizing the Urban Riders Fashion Show that is part of the Pedal Nation Bicycle Show happening this weekend at the Oregon Convention Center. It has been a lot of work, but it's been super fun! I have had a great time styling all of the outfits, and not only do I have the outfits to deal with, I also have to match each one with bags, jewelry, helmets, and bicycles! There is a good amount of the techy stuff (spandex and rain wear) but it is mostly cool stuff that you can ride your bicycle in and then get right off and walk into work, a cafe, a bar, etc. Here are a few looks from some of my favorite designers that will be showing:

Other designers that will be showing include Clever Cycles, Sheila Moon, Endura, Showers Pass, and Cycleogical Gear. Rickshaw Bags, Nutcase Helmets, and Velo Gioielli Jewelry will be completing the looks and bicycles will be provided by Brompton, Kalkhoff, Millholland Cycles, Bike Friday, Seattle Electric Bikes, TI Cycle Fabrications, Metrofiets, Linus, and Breezer. Portland band Mnemonic Sounds will be providing the music for the show and this all will take place on a "grassy" track that will have a bar and lounge area in the middle!
So, if you love fashion and you love bicycles you should definitely come to this fashion show! There is a show on Saturday and on Sunday and they both start at 2:30. Hope to see you there!!!!
