Meet the makers, find incredible pieces.

Vancouver friends! There’s an amazing new fashion house in your hood. Vestige is the brand created by Aileen Lee and Annie Kao, centered around the idea of creating change in the way clothes are manufactured and produced.

Vestige teamed up with local designers and entrepreneurs for the #VestigePlus pop up; an opportunity to shop new collections and connect with like-minded people using dress as a catalyst for social change.

Swing by the community-centered shop this weekend, April 17-19. More details here.

PECAN is a traveling magazine printed 3 times a year as a lyrical guidebook to 3 different cities. The first issue kicks off with Paris. Enjoy the brilliant visual and written pieces curated by Jaimie Stettin online here.  We love this idea and the way different artists were woven together in Issue I.

Think of us instead as a roaming print documentary series, with each installment introducing a city through perceptions of its inspired inhabitants. – PECAN


We are loving the T-Shirt Girls series by all-around Seattle rad gal and artist Amanda Manitach. Now available at Roq La Rue Gallery. 


From Roq La Rue:

Roq La Rue is excited to introduce Seattle artist Amanda Manitach for her solo exhibition of infamous t-shirt girls, ‘Whiskey Helps’. Driven by the premise that feminine empowerment, sexuality, and self-expression evolve through history, Manitach’s t-shirt girls examine the nuances and conflicts of being female in the 21st Century. 

Amanda Manitach is an artist as well as curator at Seattle University’s Hedreen Gallery, and visual arts editor at City Arts Magazine. She grew up in Texas, the daughter of a charismatic pastor, and has lived in the Northwest since 2001. Her work has been exhibited nationally including Planthouse Gallery (NYC), Bellevue Arts Museum, Frye Art Museum, Lawrimore Project and Roq la Rue Gallery.

All pieces are framed and available for purchase through Roq La Rue.
