Fashion Ethic Fashion show with Sublet!

The Alison dress has been getting around- check it out at Fashion Ethic's fashion show they had at Capital Hill in Seattle. Read more via Fashion Ethic's blog.

Another spring stockist, Fashion Ethic , is the brain-child of Candice Caldwell. Based out of Seattle, Fashion Ethic is for forward-thinking and fashion-forward women. (yay for alliterations)

Olio United- Portland, OR

I stumbled across this beautiful post about Olio United by
Design Sponge.

Olio United is owned by Cathy McMurray, Korrine James and David Williams and based in Portland. Community oriented and carrying only products that tell a good story, Olio United was their answer to unbridled consumerism. We love their gutsy mission and so glad we're a part of their solution.

Check out their beautiful window display of over 1,000 paper planes by Katie- amazing!

Katie, who works for Olio United, made this beautiful window display of over 1,000 planes! (That's patience..)

The finished window display- how beautiful!

Project Earth Day Fashion Show

Last night we headed to the
Project Earth Day Fashion Show at the Teknion showroom . We were so starved by the time we got there, we were about to nom just about anything. Thank goodness though they had great food and drinks (organic beer!) to keep us content until the fashion show.

After a bit of a delay, the show started and it was great to see the girls in Sublet coming down the runway. We took some pictures, albeit slightly blurry (apparently my panning technique needs a bit of work..)

After the show we stopped by the studio to work on a couple things for our upcoming Fall '08 collection (which you can get a small glimpse from our launch party).

To see more pics of the show, check out the student designers

MOMA visit

So the other day we headed to MOMA with some friends to check out their 'Design in the Elastic Mind' exhibit. We love visiting MOMA (it was some people's 2nd visit to the exhibit) and it's a bit of reunion anytime we go back (esp for Tara).

About the exhibit: "It focuses on designers' ability to grasp momentous changes in technology, science, and social mores, changes that will demand or reflect major adjustments in human behavior, and convert them into objects and systems that people understand and use."

We highly recommend seeing it and it's running through May 12, so you still have time. Best to go on a day when you can absorb yourself in each piece as a many of them are interactive. (Maybe we'll go back for a 3rd time... when it's not so busy.) If you can't go in person they have an online exhibit that is both frustrating and absorbing..

Some highlights:

Turning Green Fashion Show

We weren't feeling so great today with the gloomy skies, but our days got a lot brighter when we went to the Turning Green Fashion Show presented by Whole Foods and Teens for Safe Cosmetics. We were really excited to be one of the designers invited to present at the fashion show, so we definitely wanted to swing by and show our support.

When we walked in, we were greeted by a fantastic crowd (who managed to get all the way downtown despite the weather) and a life size poster of our Alison dress. Then when we looked inside the program, the Alison was featured again as an opening image. How nice!

The show was extremely well produced, in large part to eco-celeb Bahar Shahpar whose cute outfit was topped off by her headset. Speaking of people watching, we were excited by the great turnout- in the audience were Josh Dorfman of the Lazy Environmentalist, Tierra Del Forte (Del Forte Denim), host Zem Joaquin (Domino mag's Green Editor + ecofabulous blogger) and John Masters (John Masters Organics).

We're excited that the green movement is catching on and encouraged that even younger generations are getting involved. It definitely makes for a better tomorrow (which right now we're wishing were sunny and 70). But one step at a time.

More pics on Flickr.
p.s. Check out the great re-usable bag from Whole Foods and SIGG bottle that we received as a gift (which you can get a similar one here). Two more things that we'll be making room for in our own bags.

Best little bookstores- Boston and NYC

So you just can't find that book on 21st century infographics huh? Well, we know the just place(s) that might have it..

If you're like us and love small, well-edited bookstores (with great design titles) then stop by MIT's Press bookstore (yes, that MIT) in Boston and St. Mark's Bookshop in New York City.

Don't be fooled by their websites, it's worth the trek out as both have a great selection. We've loved St. Mark's Bookshop since moving to the city, but the MIT bookstore was a nice, stumble-upon find during a recent trip to Boston.
