Inspired by multimedia genius Andy Warhol’s Factory, editorial hairstylist Emily Mazour is bringing together Portland’s most fashion forward women for The Fashion Factory at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 2.
The event features the collaborative work of photographer Holly Seeber, the editorial hairstylist Emily Mazour and recognizes three incredibly talented and passionate Northwest designers.
Holly Seeber is an editorial and fine art photographer currently living in Portland. In 2011 she graduated from the Art Institute of Seattle with her Bachelors degree in photography. Her creativity and passion have garnished her recognition both nationally and internationally.
Emily Mazour has worked in the field of high fashion hair styling for a decade. Her commitment to style has positioned Emily as one of Portland’s most creative hairstylists. When not behind the chair, she works on shoots that capture avant-garde haircuts and colors. Her work has been published in Modern Salon, Valentina, and Avari Magazine.
Designer Wendy Ohlendorf pairs new materials and vintage fabrics symbiotically to create one-of-a-kind designs. Her garments are handcrafted in her Portland showroom with exceptional craftsmanship, impeccable style and attention to detail. Wendy has earned the distinction of “Portland’s Best Emerging Designer” (2014), and “People’s Choice Best Female Designer” (2015) by Portland Fashion and Style Awards.
Sixteen year-old Kate Miles, designer of Kate Couture, was as emerging designer at 2014 Portland Fashion Week, and is going to be featured in 2016 LA Fashion Week. Her brand provides high-end gowns to a niche market of non-traditional consumers.
Alyssa Woods, designer of Vavalingerie, strikes a balance between using the most environmentally safe and friendly materials available and achieving the super sexy look and feel of modern lingerie. Her designs celebrate curvier and voluptuous woman.
To amplify the conceptual designs of Wendy, Kate, and Alyssa, Portland’s top makeup artist Marissa Freeman and editorial stylist Emily Mazour team up to create makeup and hair that is as visually striking as the garments being showcased.
Award winning local bartender and Speedrack competitor Natasha Knight has created the New Fashion and the 77 Spritzer, two specialty cocktails to mark the occasion. Amy McClintick, graduate of London-based Wine and Spirit Education Trust carefully curates rare and affordable wines which she will be showcasing for the evening.
Closing the event is a raffle drawing with grand prizes including a photo session with Holly Seeber, makeup by Marissa Freeman, and hair styled by Emily Mazour.
