Spring is here and I’m on the move! We’ve been so lucky in Portland with an early spring and I’ve tried my hardest to get outside on a regular basis to enjoy the sunshine and gorgeous blooms that are starting to show.

On The Paraders front, I have so many exciting things to share with you and way more to come in the next few weeks. Since the last post, I’ve been busy designing The Paraders S/S 2016 collection and sourcing fabric, patternmakers, you name it! I spent about a week in LA looking at fabrics of all kinds and came back to Portland with so many new ideas. The spring collection is well under way, but in the meantime, I have another surprise. I’ve been working on another “mini-collection” of Paraders goods. Can you guess what it is? The big reveal will be next week. I CAN’T FREAKIN’ WAIT TO SHOW YOU.  Sign up here for first dibs on the limited-run collection coming next week.
