fashion :: frocky jack morgan

if you live in portland, you may have seen these beautiful "deconstructed" dresses at various boutiques around town. the fashion line Frocky Jack Morgan is the darling of designer Julia Barbee who literally takes apart vintage dresses and reconstructs them into something part sculpture and part apparel. Her work is totally sustainable and she often adorns her clothing with leaves, feathers, and other bits + bobs for embellishment.

and the word on the street is that most of her dresses sell for less than $500! perfect for say, oh, a wedding dress? you can see some of these lovely frocks at Flutter on mississippi street in portland (a gorgeous shop, by the way). and visit Julia's website at
