Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
Lizz Basinger, owner of Lizz Basinger Designs, showed a unique 15-look collection in Portland Fashion Week’s “FASHIONxt” show held the week of October 8, 2012. This collection of mix and match separates and easy-fitting dresses were created primarily out of cottons and wools. The medium-weight fabrics were specifically designed so they could be worn almost all year round, giving the collection a broader use than traditional single-season offerings.
According to Jewel Mignon of Fashion News Live, “The line Lizz Basinger Designs showed at FASHIONxt was a perfect commercial collection of ready-to-wear that could be seen today in any major department store and on streets near you soon. In hues of grays and blues, the collection is fun, with great day looks a woman can be comfortable in.”
Basinger often unites structured, geometric elements with soft silhouettes. She adds attention to detail—with piping, pleating and a unique juxtaposition of fabric patterns— giving her designs a fresh sense of casual sophistication. Along with this unique sense of style, however, comes a new sense of social commitment. Basinger employs sustainable design techniques in both design and production.
Basinger was also involved in the concurrent Portland Design Week at an event called “Fashion Speaks.” She was a speaker and on a panel where members of the press, local fashion industry professionals, and the public were invited to ask questions of panel members during the forum.
Additionally, on October 11, 2012, Basinger began a Kickstarter campaign, a funding platform for artists and small businesses that are creative in nature. Basinger intends to take Lizz Basinger Designs to the next level using this innovative form of project funding started by Amazon.
