I basically point at stuff and throw things together hoping that it sticks, that and herd cats.

3. Favorite season, why? 
It has always been Fall, but right now I am craving Spring something bad.

I would be the Coco Portfolio or the next bag that hasn't come out yet. I love to keep things fresh but I also love a classic staple.

Susperia

7. What would be your last meal before the world ended?
All the beverages: Cold Brew from Stumptown, Steigel Radler with a shot of Tequila, Wine White, Fizzy Water with Lavender Bitters and maybe a bowl of soup, crab cakes and french fries and a burrito. ALL THE FOOD. 

8. Who is your role model?
My parents, hard workers with huge hearts. What else do you need?

9. What's your ideal friday night?
Leave work early, grab a coffee at a little shop and get a new magazine at Rich's, then hit happy hour somewhere. Maybe run to a thrift store or two and grab dinner. After dinner have a night cap and hit the hay OR go visit my folks and have dinner with them then head home and watch too many episodes of Chopped (more realistic)

I am a studio assistant, I'm here for moral support, to come up with new ideas & drink all the champagne!

3. Favorite season, why?
Favorite season would have to be summer obviously, mostly because that's when my birthday is and who doesn't love the northwest sunshine.

4. What is your dream vacation scenario? 
Dream vacation...... Santorini, Greece! Ever since I saw the 1980's movie Summer Lovers (which is an amazingly awful movie) I totally want to go! Not to necessarily do what Cathy & Michael do in the film, but just to be in the sun and surrounded by beautiful architecture!

Dazed and Confused, for sure!

6. What would be your last meal before the world ended?
A few gin and tonics, crawfish, beignets, in an old beautiful plantation home with huge oak trees on a warm spring night. Can you tell that I just got back from the south?

7. Who is your role model?
Sarah Vale, obviously! She's an EXTREMELY hard worker and has everything I hope to accomplish some day! She's also very kind and we get along famously! Sarah's thee best and becoming apart of Seaecho was the highlight of my year last year! And my MOM, Beth Hupe what's up! 

8. What's your ideal friday night?
OMG, it would involve a new outfit, all my closest friends dancing the night away to some awful dirty rap music with free beverages of course!

CHELSEA

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 9.41.43 PM.png

1. Introduce yourself 
My name is Chelsea, also known by my friends as Brister! I am graduating at the end of March from the Art Institute with a BFA in Apparel Design. I LOVE prints, textiles and creating things, from fashion to art! I enjoy basketball, the outdoors, good coffee, good beer and DISNEYLAND!

2. What is your position at SEAECHO?
I've been interning with Seaecho since November as a product developer, production sewer, trend researcher, with a little dabblin' in the digital textile design as well. I'm the only one that wears nikes to the studio and I tend to impress the girls daily with my array of fun and funky print based, colorful clothes.

3. Favorite season, why?
Favorite season is definitely summer because I love being out in nature! I love going to the lake, the beach, camping, hiking, riding bike, rollerblading (cuz hello I'm a child of the 90's) and all the brewfests that pdx has to offer.

4. If you could be any SEAECHO bag, which one would you be?
 The Kingston Carryall!! This bag hasn't went to production yet, but it holds a dear place in my heart because I had a helping hand in developing it! And it's named after my dog, the most adorable chocolate lab, Kingston! Stay tuned!!!

5. If you could dress in any persons closet on this earth for a full month who would it be and why?
Its a tie between M.I.A. and Va$htie! I love the bold and funkiness of M.I.A.'s style, she's daring and unique.Then with VA$htie's style, she's just so hood, and I appreciate that! Her style is a reflection of her and she doesn't care about labels, she wears what's comfy first and foremost and what is stylish to her. Tomboy and comfortable, Jordans and funky bold statement pieces is definitely my ideal style!

6. What is your dream vacation scenario?
Tuscany!!! I wanna drink wine and eat my way through Italy and meet a foreign lover! Just like 'Under the Tuscan sun' haha

7. Favorite movie? New or old?
PULP FICTION!! Quentin Tarantino is a genius.

8. Who is your role model?
My parents! They became parents at a young age, and I'm blown away how they managed to raise 3 children with a pretty incredible upbringing. They did everything possible to make us happy and for that I am so greatful. I hope I one day, I am half the parents they are!

9. What's at the very top of your bucket list?
Run with bulls in Pamplona, Spain and dance in Carnival in Rio de Janeiro!

10. What's your ideal friday night?
Drinking good Oregon beer with good friends, rollerskating at oaks park and then going to a Fanno Creek concert  (my brothers the drummer!)

 

KATIE

1. Introduce yourself
 
I’m Katie. Adventures, my sweet cats (ginger and snowball) and wine.

2. What is your position at SEAECHO?
Social media intern. Doing blog posts, finding inspiration, sharing ideas, helping with shoots, helping with what I can.

3. Favorite season, why? 
SUMMER. That’s when I feel most free. Free to wear fun outfits, free to hang in the water like a mermaid and free to eat more ice cream. 

4. If you could dress in any persons closet on this earth for a full month who would it be and why?
Do the Olsens count as one person? Everything they wear is so good. But if i’m picking one, it’s Rihanna. On one hand she’s classy and elegant at times and the other extremely cheeky. I admire her style in both cases.

5. What is your dream vacation scenario?
So many. But Greece has to be up there. The landscapes and buildings are impeccable. I’d have to see to believe.

6. Favorite movie? New or old? 
Has to be Romy and Michelles High School Reunion. This movie is the first I saw and wanted to dress the part. 

7. What would be your last meal before the world ended?
The thickest soft crust pizza with lots of things on top. Sweet red wine with the biggest slice of cheesecake. I wouldn’t die hungry. 

8.Who is your role model?
My mother. So thankful to have this incredible and beautiful woman. Role model/ mom/ best friend.

9. What's your ideal friday night?
Loud music, all of the people I love and some whisky. Sitting in the middle of the floor singing/ dancing/ laughing/ playing games.

10. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
Probably a couple.
