This Portland fashion photoshoot gave me another shiny opportunity to work with local designers and highlight a great cause! Portland fashion designer Clair Vintage Inspired teamed up with me again for her Spring/Summer 2012 collection, and this time, Community Warehouse was kind enough to open their doors to us for our professional fashion photography session.
Community Warehouse is a Portland non-profit organization that gathers donations of used goods, such as basic furniture and housewares, and distributes them to help local people in need–that includes low-income families, people with disabilities, the elderly, and women escaping domestic violence. It’s truly wonderful that we have a resource like this to help disadvantaged folks in Portland improve the quality of their lives, so we’re excited to lend some of the spotlight to them as part of shooting this fashion collection.
If you don’t have things to donate? You can support Community Warehouse by shopping at their Estate Store–they cherry-pick the coolest vintage and retro furniture, kitchen goods, and fun decorative pieces to sell at the Estate Store, and all of the proceeds go to support the Warehouse, and get more housewares out to people in need.
In the meantime, enjoy the photos, and check out the full collection on the Clair Vintage web site.
