ALEX KREBS – RENOWN RENAISSANCE TANGUERO

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 Krebs -1941

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?

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FASHION BLOGGER

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FASHION BLOGGER

Dec.12, 2017

This is a documentary film made by @ZEREE STUDIO. Zeree Bao is a sophomore in Portland Art Institute, majoring in Film Making.

His final project of this school term is to create a documentary film of someone in his life that he worships or respects. By decomposing this person’s daily life, he gives a behind-the-scenes look into this person’s hard work and dedication. The goal is to tell a light-hearted story to spread positive energy and form a good example for others to follow.

A couple of weeks ago he came to me and asked whether I could be the person for this project. I was certainly honored and accepted the challenge!

I also encourage you to share your feedback with me so I am always offering high quality content that meets your expectations. Let’s talk!

FASHIONXT | FINALE

FASHIONXT | FINALE

Dec.5th 2017

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.

 

Evening Highlight

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! : )

ASYMMETRIC DRESS

ASYMMETRIC DRESS

Aug 25th, 2017

Last summer was all about the Jumpsuit for me. This year I have found a new obsession: Asymmetry. In fact, asymmetry is also very much in this summer.

I stumbled upon this asymmetric dress while I was shopping online (FORWARD) this past winter. It was on a huge sale and I bought it right away because of the unique color combo, ruffle details, and, most importantly, its asymmetry!
