Oh Idom

necklace

I have many obsessions in this city and I have discussed many of the culinary persuasion, but I also adore the fashion of Portland. And no shop has impressed me as much as Idom, on NW 23rd Avenue near Kearney. I support local farmers, avoid chain restaurants and seek out community activities, but I am not as familiar with PDX based designers, until now. Modi Soondarotok, a native of Thailand now based in Portland, opened Idom to showcase her designs as well as other collections. She emphasizes sustainable fabrics and craftsmanship, often sending items to be handmade back to Thailand where she pays fair wages to seamstresses. Her designs are simultaneously timeless and unique. Modi also keeps a great blog detailing various activities at her shop as well as news on her latest designs. If you’re ever in PDX, stroll into Idom for fashion with a conscience.
