Fashion entrepreneur designs for CLE

CLEVE STUFF, Ohio

  • Organizing your closet: a step-by-step guide

    Getting your closet in order is actually very fulfilling and can be fun as well. Once you get it done you will have a sense of accomplishment plus extra time since dressing in your new space will be quick and easy because you will know where everything is and ready to wear. The problem most of us encounter is just getting started. Most of us just don’t know where to begin.
  • Oh baby!

    The quaint area of downtown Chagrin Falls has incorporated a “little” modern twist, by introducing the Offspring boutique, which offers distinctive baby gifts and fashionable children’s apparel.
  • Believe in Cleveland

    Believe in Cleveland. That is how Timothy Kilkenny and a handful of local designers feel about the city of Cleveland. A month ago, they founded a web-based business called Collision Bend Clothing. The shirts they design are meant to be fun with Cleveland history and the suburbs.
  • The Designer Consignor

    If you’ve never stopped in The Designer Consigner on Detroit Avenue in Lakewood, I highly suggest you find time to do it. Whether it is to drop off some of your clothes for consignment, or just a quick visit to scope out the racks, you won’t be disappointed. I had the opportunity to ask Molly Beargie, the owner, a few questions. Her answers not only explain consignments shops to those that may not be familiar with the process, they also reflect on her passion for fashion and the inner workings of the shop.
  • Sip & Stroll

    On the second Thursday of every month (until September) from 5-8 p.m., the boutiques in Old Detroit open their doors to an event called Sip & Stroll.

    Mark Sprouse enters the coffee shop in a flurry and deftly moves behind the counter to fill up a Thermos before the RTA bus driver who just dropped him off circles around for the fresh joe. “This really is curbside service today,” Sprouse says as he smiles at his bus driver before heading back into Willow Coffee House on the corner of 117th and Madison in Cleveland.
  • Beautifully drawn

    The fashion illustrations of Suzanne Gilbert and Salvador Miguel are now on display at the Geode Gallery in Tremont. Gallery owner Gillian Barnes had seen the work of both illustrations and wanted to show them together because they are neat and fit together. When asked what her favorite piece was, Barnes had a tough time. She picked her favorite piece from both artists: Fall from Grace by Miguel and an untitled watercolor by Gilbert.
