I have a huge crush on the great city of Portland, Oregon. It always seems to be such a hub of creative expression and wonderful, warm people. So I was super excited to find one more thing to add to my list of “things to love about Portland” in a recent VenusZine article. In the profile article Leanne Marshall, a Portland-based designer, talks about how she sees the West Coast city as being on the forefront of eco-friendly fashion. Her designs are gorgeous, and though she touts having a tendency to “pleat everything I touch” as a habit she’s trying to squelch, I say let the pleats fly!
