Remember this stunning tiara? It’s just one of Julia Barbee‘s beautiful and unique creations. Last December, this prolific Portland artist and designer opened up shop at 811 E. Burnside. Her space is equal parts studio, gallery, perfumery and vintage shop. Julia not only has an inspiring creative output, but she also works in a number of mediums, including textiles, scent and performance art. I adore her dresses, which are a little bit punk princess, a little bit rock and roll. Then there are her hair clips, necklaces and perfumes. For this year’s Open Season Mercury Fashion show, Julia draped belly dancers in sculptural headdresses made of crystals. I absolutely can’t wait to see what she does next!
