The weekend started with Claire of Copper Union hosting a karaoke night at the Voice Box which was amazing! I never sing and I sang all night long with everyone. Not particularly well but I did sing and have a great time.
I busied myself Satruday which finishing up pieces for the event and shoot. Come Sunday morning I picked the ladies up at their Air BnB for the shoot. I just loved shooting them because so much of their personality just shines through in their photos. Unique style, bold prints, tattoos and big smiles. It was amazing! I just have to share some of my favorite photos from the shoot.
Needless to say the shoot was fantastic and I would have them model for me and my company any day of the week!
Immediately after the shoot was the event. I asked several plus size designers from the PDX area to join me, Chubby Cartwheels, at the event and Hello Amelia, Copper Union and Size Queen all joined in! We had a limited attendee list because of the restricting space so I asked local fashion and body positive bloggers, models and activitst to join us at the event for a day of checking out and trying on the designs of our local plus size fashion. I also asked everyone to tag photos with #pdxindieplus and these were some of the photos I found.
