Q A with Sofada's Alice Dobson My column this week takes a look at the recent Sofada ugg rain boots fashion show, but a mere 450 words could not contain the long conversation I had with Sofada designer Alice Dobson. Below is the full Q A, with more pictures from the show taken by Minh Tran. You've been designing in Portland for quite some time. Recap? I've been sewing my whole life. Right around eight years old I have concrete images of sewing, but I know I started earlier than that. All through grade and high school I liked to make things. I went to Seaside High School, which offered sewing as an elective, and I felt so fortunate to finally have a teacher. When I moved how to clean ugg boots to Portland, I worked at Washington Mutual, and although I had been selling my things through word of mouth, for cheap, it never dawned on me that that could be my job. It seemed like a pipe dream. I was working at the uptown branch, and this really ugg cardy stylish guy and his wife would come in to do their banking. They told me about FIDM in Los Angeles, and I immediately knew that I would go there. My degree is in apparel manufacturing, because that program also included classes on how to make a business. I was 20 when went there, and moved back at 23. I heard randomly about Seaplane, and was totally excited because even three years before there was nothing going on in Portland. It's been this huge bubble burst of fashion designers since. I met Kate [Towers] at Seaplane, and my stuff started selling immediately. Kate and Holly [Stalder] were sending people to me all the time who wanted a certain dress in a different color, etc. I was tired of people coming over all the time, so I started looking around for shops, and found the teeny one on Fremont. It had no bathroom, no air conditioningwhich in a shop is horrible. In retrospect, what do you think about your decision to pursue apparel design in Portland as opposed to New York or another large market? I think it was the best decision I ever made. And I cried when I was leaving LA. I www.uggs.com loved my life there. There's an omelet named after me there. I thought, "What am I doing moving back to Portland, Oregon?" But my husband and I wanted to buy a house. It only took two months to see that things had changed, and probably because of Kate and Holly. I feel like I am lucky to have gotten in on the ground floor. It's definitely been nice, and I feel special to have been part of that growth. I've been in business six years and it just worked out, because of really good timing, good people. I never had any ambition to go to New York. It's too far away, I have my family. Even when I sold my line in LA, I had so much trouble just getting paid. Here we have a pretty good handful of designers, but in LA there's like two million. I thank every day that I went to school in LA, and that I moved back when I did. Can you talk a little but about your business plan and current goals? How important is growth to you? It's changed over the years. In the beginning, growth was really important, but I was taught in school "baby steps, baby steps, baby steps." I just want to live nicely, like anybody. The business doesn't need to be huge and I don't need to be rich. I just want to keep on working and building the business. When I went to New York fashion week, I was six months pregnant, and when I had my son I had to step back. I got so much good press and so much business, but in hindsight, it was sort of too big of a step. I had to make a choice: I have my family and my business. I decided to focus on the wholesale accounts that really loved me, and concentrate on the store. The store is my bread and butter, and I wanted to get my production inhouse. We now even offer production for other lines outside of Sofada under the name Alice, Inc. We've always sewn inhouse, but we used to send things out to local contractors too, and always had problems. I'm so much busier on Burnside [2937 E Burnside], and I'm so happy we were able to buy the building. I now have four employees, plus interns. I personally don't make much money at all. I pay my ugg boots for kids mortgage and pay the girls, but that way everybody has a job. Do you have any insight as to how Portland designers should move uggs bailey button forward? I think that things are going well. I don't really know where it's going to go. I think we should make sure what we're representing to the rest of the world is really well done, and to industry standards. I think that Fashion Week is trying to do that. The fashion industry needs to show that we're on our game. Five years ago when I'd see other local designers' stuff, I'd just be like "Oh my god." Now I see designers all the time and I'm like, "Sweet. Good job." What sorts of things were you thinking about in this collection? To me it seemed more confident, sexy, strong. It also reminded me of Mad Men, was that conscious? You are like the third or fourth person to have said that! But I've never seen the show! The '60s for me is way not my thing. Normally I'd be like "Ew, '60s," but I took what I like from it, and I've been seeing it all over the place. There's something in the air that makes these things happen. Do you buy into the notion that there is a desire to return styles of the past during worrisome times? I'd have to give that way more thought. Right off the bat I'd say subconsciously, yes. People are also into being at home and making their homes nice right now. Like being a homemaker, but maybe a sexy one who drinks and takes pills. How have you been influenced by things that have been discussed in the media regarding Portland's design scenethe frenzy for "green," for exampleas well as the black ugg boots fact that the bar is being raised for both designers and boutiques? I am not your average advertised green designer. I don't use fabrics that are organic. But I think there's definitely a frenzy going on. In Portland there's definitely a movement. Just the fact that we have all our sewing inhouse means we don't use any gas to move things around. A lot of the girls walk or ride the bus here. We don't do a lot of shipping. I never drive to work. But I think that you have to be careful about short boots calling yourself green, because not everything is. You can try. Maybe it's part of the reason I'm more reinspired that we have some good designers coming now, and that definitely puts the pressure on a tiny bit. Your collections are always very colorful, how do you settle upon choosing colors and patterns each season? I find my textiles first, mostly from Los Angeles. I usually will have some sort of theme or idea that I know I'm kind of shooting for. I chose the '60s and '80s because I never touch them. If anything I veer away from them. I was aware that something new needed to happen. I wanted to pick something new but still be Sofada: almost everything is made to look good on a huge range of women's bodies. After I realized it would be '60s and '80s, I started looking at magazines. I get asked a lot where my inspiration comes from. It'll be something kind of subconscious, but it's always right. And it's not just me. It ultimately is my thing, but I get the perspective of other people. Do your collections reflect what you yourself wear? What are the goto elements of your wardrobe? Skirts and dresses with a casual top. I don't wear blouses much, I wear casual, sexy little knit tops. I'm in dresses and skirts most of the time. What do you think is the most important thing for people to know about your line? One of my biggest things is that when you uggs for women see models walking down the runway, it's not geared to just that type of body. We all need fun, bright stuff to keep us up, and we need to embrace that. Definitely shopping is an outlet to feel better. And my line is affordable. It's definitely not cheap, but for women who are into building a wardrobe, uggaustralia its not outrageous. And hardly anyone I know goes to the mall. I hate the mall, you have to force me to go. toddler uggs Kate s Rescue Strategy Guide Silent Evil: Kate Rescue is a hidden object game which has released on July 7th, 2011.

Jewish students observe High Holy Days plays the bassoon professionally yearround, but during tonight's Yom Kippur service, her instrument will offer up a special melody: the slow, somber Kol Nidrei, the prayer that starts the evening service on the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. "I look forward to it all year," said Jacobson, 23, who plays along with other student and graduate musicians at Houston Hillel. Rather than in concert, Jacobson gets to play the piece in its original context, the Jewish liturgy. Dozens of young Jews like Jacobson connect to their religion through the organization's holiday observances, from attending services to sharing music or sermons. Opportunities to participate in the observances help them maintain Jewish identity and honor the holiday traditions, even though their families and home synagogues may be miles away. Amid busy schedules, classes and a culture in which religious practice seems to be fading away, they pause for the High Holy Days. During this time, they return to the prayers and rituals of their people, heavy ugg flip short boots flops ugg boots cheap with a sense of tradition botas ugg and nostalgia. Jacobson's family in New Jersey called her so she could listen in on blessings at the start of the Days of Awe, Rosh Hashanah. They texted her a picture of the challah loaf her brother made. Jacobson knows they wish she were home for the holidays, but several states away, she marks the season in her own way, accompanying the Hillel services just like when she was in college. "When I play music, uggs for cheap it's all quite a spiritual experience for me," she said. "This is a cultural connection to the traditions of my life." It's easy for college students to drop those connections. Fewer than 1 in 5 attend religious services weekly, and this young generation is more likely than any other not to affiliate with a tradition, according to a survey released last year. For , who graduated from Rice in 2007, all it took was a mailing from Hillel to get her in the door. By her junior year, she was standing beside Rabbi , singing prayers in Hebrew as the group's cantorial soloist. After a visit to Israel, LeytonMange had resolved to do something more meaningful with her faith. When the opportunity came to be involved in worship, she knew that was it. LeytonMange, 25, now lives and works in New York but returns every year to commemorate the High Holidays with Hillel and perform in the services, which draw about 150 students and community members. "It became more like home than the congregation where I grew up" in Philadelphia, she said. Just like she had done years before, these young Jews crowd into the , on Bissonnet near the Rice campus. New faces, including knock off uggs this year's pianist, 18yearold Rice freshman Maya Stokes, participate in the music while uggs for cheap others read aloud prayers and reflections from the mahzorim, the High Holidays prayer books. "Here in Houston, it's not like the Northeast. Things don't shut down for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur," said LeytonMange, wearing a traditional tallit shawl and a necklace with the Hebrew word chai, or life, around her neck. "You're doing more to observe the holiday. For me, every year it feels like a renewal. The fall becomes a time to reflect." For the past few years, students have also been able to share sermons during some of the High short boots Holiday services. "They have a different perspective, depending on what stage of life they're in," said Weiss, the Hillel rabbi. Weiss will give tonight's sermon, and Rice sophomore will speak Saturday. Daniella Singer, student president of Hillel at the , began the holiday observances with a message on forgiveness. Singer said though she knew Judaism would always be a part of her life in college, getting to speak during the holidays made her cheap ugg boots examine the teachings of her faith more seriously.
