Spring 2014 Fashion Show :: Nili Lotan x Dance




Nili Lotan x DANCE — Spring 2014 from Nili Lotan

Designer, Nili Lotan collaborated with LeeSaar the Company for her Spring 2014 Fashion Show. The performance entitled Dance x "captures and represents the key elements in my designs: simple, pure, effortless and sexy" she says.

Each movement of the dance emphasize the details of the designs, something Lotan says gets lost in a traditional runway show.  This unique performance is testament to Lotan's ability to translate her vision into the world and is not to be missed.

In the film Nili Lotan says "Style comes from within and it is experimental...I hope that will come through the dance." I think she nailed it. What do you think?

Chinti and Parker Maxi Dress

The weather in Portland has turned a corner, ushering in sunshine, fresh blossoms and my need for the perfect summer dress. I have been searching for the perfect Maxi dress obsessively and I think I have found the winner!



Bamboo Jersey Maxi V-Neck Dress by Chinti and Parker.
 Color: Navy, 100% Bamboo Jersey Cotton, Made in EU 
$255

While the classic silhouette fits the bill, the thing that makes this dress so great are the subtle details: the gray grosgrain shoulder straps and sweet ruffled trim add the perfect feminine touch. But what sold me in the end were the side slit pockets. Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?!

The Perfect Summer Slip

Looking for that perfect summer slip? 

Look no further than local designer Sarah Bibb, founder and lead designer of Folly. We recommend her slips to clients because they are a great compliment to any outfit. They provide extra coverage without being bulky, are a great value and are locally made in Portland. Her slim slips smooth out a dress for a perfect finishing touch!

This slip would work great with The Bohemian by Nili Lotan, don't you think?


The Bohemian by Nili Lotan, here with James Lariat and Newbury Boots.
Color: Navy/Ivory, Unlined, 100% Silk, Made in USA
$350
