LONDON FASHION WEEK | FASHION FOR CONSERVATION
Mar 15th, 2018
Those of you who have read my previous post, know that I attended London Fashion Week a couple of weeks ago. London is my favorite city in Europe because of its food, fashion scene, and breathtaking architecture — not to mention I was there for Fashion Week, which adds another level of euphoria. I felt that all the cells of my body were awakened the moment I landed and couldn’t wait to get a glimpse and this season’s upcoming fashion trends.
Fashion for Conservation (FFC) was the first show I went to. It was founded by three women determined to make a positive impact on the world through conservation-inspired couture. They combined their talents and passions to create fashion campaigns that educate consumers on animals and ecosystems, while donating funds to wildlife groups — all while doing it in fashion (pun intended).

Being able to go to London Fashion Week (LFW) has been a dream of mine. It is one of the goals I set when I first started Style Right. I have never thought I could achieve this goal at this early of a stage in my blogging career. However, I always believed that hard work and perseverance, no matter the obstacles, would always pay off – and it did for me.

The retail fashion industry transition to internet makes more complex personal purchases like special occasion dresses easier every year. Finding the right outfit for a special occasion is less of a hassle. With established online retailers of designer dresses you can find many more affordable prices for good quality.

ALEX KREBS – RENOWN RENAISSANCE TANGUERO
Dec 13th, 2017
The first time I met Alex Krebs was about 10 years ago. I was searching for an Argentine Tango dance teacher. A Google search quickly turned up Alex and his all-tango dance studio in SE Portland, Tango Berretin, a funky, bohemian space complete with dance shoes glued on the ceiling, a mate gourd collection, and tango artwork. I took lessons, was hooked, and joined and stayed in the community ever since.
Alex is hard to define. He not only does many things, but also does them very successfully. He is a musician and physicist by education, and an Argentine tango teacher by profession. He directs two accomplished bands — a 14-piece Balkan Brass Band, The Krebsic Orkestar, and a tango sextet. He has been featured in the New York Times, OPB, Oregonian and other major media outlets for his craft and also his community building achievements. He has performed with the Oregon Symphony, released 6 tango albums, and has tango instructional apps. Students of his have even gone on to become notable Tango teachers, DJs, and organizers. So who is he?
FASHIONXT | FINALE
FASHIONXT night 4, the finale, was definitely most crowded and had the highest level of energy compared to the other nights. Many Portland celebrities, including NBA player Evan Turner, and fashion industry leading icons were all there to experience the last night of 2017 FashioNXT.
A group of friends came to join me
It was also the best night for me because 7 of my great friends all came to join me. I was able to take a lot of fun group photos with them, drink cocktails and dance as if no one was watching… Besides, after three nights of socializing and networking, I deserved a night of relaxation to simply have fun! : )
FASHIONXT | OPENING NIGHT
Oct 19th, 2017
Last weekend was a great and crazy weekend! Not only did I attend all 4 nights of the Portland FashioNXT fashion show; but, also danced 4 nights of tango. I have attended FashioNXT for 5 years, this year being the first time I have been directly involved in this wonderful event:
- One of the 3 judges for the FashioNXT Fashion Accessories Competition
- Partnered local blogger to report the whole event for my lovely viewers.
I would like to take a moment to give a HUGE thanks to my amazing photography and videography team. I think my dear readers will agree they beautifully captured the collections and moments.
The Walking Bike
Before the show started, two people with a mobility impairment rode a walking bike on the stage to showcase the Alinker bike. The bike presents a collaboration between Daimler (One of the sponsors of FashioNXT) & Alinker. Tito, the event producer, asked the boy how his evening was going. His reply was, “It is the best day of my life”.
