The next featured designer is Ms. Wood
Alicia and Ben Wood are the dynamic husband and wife duo behind Ms. Wood. With the launch of their first collection together they won the title of Best Emerging Designer of 2010 at Portland Fashion Week.
The first time I became aware of Ms. Wood was at the try-outs to compete in the Emerging Designer Competition at Portland Fashion Week in 2010, and when the judges literally bought the clothes off of the model's back then and there, I knew this was a designer to watch.
How right I was, Ms. Wood ended up winning that competition and has since been one of the fastest rising stars in the Portland design scene. With their Japanese kimono inspired dresses and coats, fringed leather bags and accessories, and shoes and jewelry made out of, you guessed it, wood, Alicia and Ben Wood consistently designs pieces that fashionable ladies need to have in their wardrobes.
Ms. Wood will be presenting it's tried and true pieces at Fade to Light on Wednesday, with their Fall 2012 Collection being dark with a sexy film noir twist.
