A collaboration between two emotive creators, ‘THORNEBIRD’ is a fashion event showcasing pureness with the warbling of evil. Seth Montfort, guitarist, sets the show to a haunting melody of shadow and darkness while his partner, Michelle Lesniak, designs fashion in bright white light. Inspired by a quote from the book The Thorn Birds, by Colleen McCullough, this collaboration will sure to move and hopefully, inspire.
Lesniak, a native Portlander, jumpstarted her career in fashion via the television show, Project Runway, in 2013. She impressed the judges: supermodel Heidi Klum, Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia and fashion designer Zac Posen to win the season. Among her prizes, she earned the financial resources to design full-time, and gain fame. Lesniak will discuss her recent experience designing costumes for Carmen, choreographed by Ihsan Rustem for NW Dance Project’s performances in March 2017, and the thought process underpinning her fall fashions.
