Last week my friend Becky Ross, Project Runway Season 9 designer, kindly gave me two passes for the Portland FASHIONxt Spring/Summer 2013 runway show.

My friend Shannon came with me to the show. She's pictured below with Becky...

Everything that Becky used in designing her clothing collection came from materials she already had! Her goal was to not spend money and to get inspiration from the fabrics that she had on hand. The only thing she bought were $12- in zippers. To pay for the zippers she used money from recycling cans. Talk about an eco-friendly clothing collection!

Posted below are items from the Becky Ross collection...

I love the flouncy back detail on the dress posted below...

The look below features Becky's favorite color of green, as well as a military influence that continues to show up in her work...

The pretty dress posted below has a 1950's inspired look to it...

The green ball gown posted below features a daringly high cut skirt...

Becky at the end of her show. After the fashion show she went out and talked with her fans, who are always excited to see her and be able to comment on how much her designs and her design philosophy mean to them...

The Grishley by Amanda Grisham collection featured bright pops of color paired with Pendleton fabrics and vintage details such as peplums...

As you would imagine there were lots of fashionable people in attendance.

The mother & daughter posted below were my favorite. When talking with them I discovered that the fashionable little girl loves vintage...

I like the jaunty way this young lady is wearing her hat...

The man pictured below is wearing such a fun combination of colors that emphasize his height...

On Project Runway Season 9 Joshua McKinley behaved like a diva and had very rude things to say about Becky's designs...
