Fall Fashion 2014 | Fall Fashion | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Fall Fashion 2014

Dapper day and elegant evening looks

N Spekktor (a pseudonym, she requested we don't run her real name in case she gets famous someday) is a local painter and fashion designer with a penchant for electronic music. As a testament to her passion for fashion, she wears a tattoo of a needle and thread shaping an infinity symbol on her forearm like a badge of honor. That, and hot pink lipstick.

"I've been into fashion since I can remember," explained the now 27-year-old Spekktor. "I was about the LA and New York trends even when I was living in Alaska as a kid and I couldn't figure out why I couldn't wear the things they were wearing. It just wasn't sensible."

Spekktor started designing jewelry seven years ago, mostly for herself. Soon she was inundated by requests from friends who wanted her signature pieces, and was overwhelmed with an inventory that was taking over her house. She took her designs to Rescue Consignment and posted them to an online Etsy store and started selling, soon moving on to not only jewelry design, but clothing as well.

Now, her Etsy store is international and this year, Spekktor launched her first swimwear line, which appeared in shows in the Bay Area and Seattle. Spekktor is the designer for the following pages, the Source's 2014 Fall Fashion spread. With the help of local shops and local designers, the issue showcases a full day of fashion in the life of a Bendite.

"Morning was more relaxed, casual comfy, still chic so that you can be fashionable and have brunch and walk your dog," explained Spekktor. "Noon, I was thinking fun in the park, hanging out with your friends, classic fall. Evening, I wanted to take a high fashion approach. We have so much beautiful clothing in this town that people don't get to see so I wanted to showcase that. For the night shoot, I wanted to show a little more urban edge. Style that, unless you go out at night, you don't necessarily see."
