Vanessa Froehling's "Carpe Denim" at FashioNXT

Local designer Vanessa Froehling competed Oct. 5 in the Up/NXT runway showing for emerging designers in Oregon's most esteemed Fashion Week, FashionNXT. While she didn't win, Froehling walked away with positive vibes:

"FashioNXT was an amazing experience! What an honor it was to be selected to participate in such a prestigious production!" Froehling tells EW. "Everyone behind the scenes that make this event happen do so seamlessly and smoothly! The industry connections and boutique representation offers, are invaluable, and I look forward to next year!"

All the designs seen below are available online at FrauleinCouture.com, and some of the pieces will be available in Portland boutiques.
