Do you remember the gorgeous Filly Fall 2010 collection? Well, local lovely fashion designer, Emily Christensen, has done it again! The Filly Spring/Summer collection is absolutely stunning. I’ve been following her progress on her blog and let me tell you, she has worked so very hard on her new collection! It turned out beautifully. Soft, romantic clothes that fit perfectly and hang beautifully. I love her color palette for this season too–Toast, Sky, Straw and White–they really do look incredibly dreamy against that deliriously pretty backdrop of craggy, paint stripped walls.
On top of this collection, Emily recently showed another 24-piece (!!!) Filly collection in a runway show at Canada’s Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver, B.C.! I was planning to blog about that event, but life has become a little chaotic (house hunting, moving and sick pup) and I’ve been all out of sorts (Sorry, Emily!!). Read more about Filly at Eco Fashion Week on Emily’s blog. She has posted a play by play, lots of images and you can read all about her state of mind before, during and after. It’s really real, folks. Really real.
If you are lucky enough to live in Portland–you can even take a class with Emily at Portland Community College! It is a 10-week course where students will learn to design a “seasonal fashion collection” and take home a completed five piece line. Amazing! Also, a little shout out to Mrs. Anja–check out the awesome Filly-centric posts she’s been working on over at Clever Nettle. SUPER COOL!
