5 Local Pieces to Perfect your Most Creative Orange Look

October 1, 2018 | | View Comments

Need help finding the perfect creative orange piece to wear to Gala 5? We’ve got you covered.

Orange: the color of enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, and creativity. It’s bold, vibrant, and daring – just like Portland’s designers and makers. This is why, when we celebrate our community, we want to celebrate it the right way: with an orange-themed gala.

Gala 5, Design Museum Portland’s first annual fundraiser, is our way of celebrating 5 years of design impact. That’s why we’ve chosen the theme Most Creative Orange. It’s the perfect opportunity to let your imagination run wild and join us for an evening of originality, creativity, and design. But what is Most Creative Orange? To help out, we’ve put together a list of 5 amazing orange pieces from local fashion designers, retailers, and thrift stores. We hope this list can help you get those creative juices flowing in time for Gala 5.
