The Changing Room Magazine Launch Party

From the editor of Changing Room Magazine…

Traum Publishing will soon celebrate the launch of a new publication called The Changing Room Magazine that meets the demands of small and medium sized boutiques, designers and vendors who are underserved in today’s fashion marketplace with insight into succeeding in today’s boutique
market.

On February 1, 2008 at 8 PM, boutique owners, employees, fashion designers, vendors and fashion enthusiasts will gather at The Cleaners at the Ace Hotel in downtown Portland to celebrate our Winter 2008 Launch Issue. The event will highlight designers and boutiques featured in the premiere issue including fashion previews from designers Rachel Mara and Liza Rietz, as well as Portland boutique Le Train Bleu, all accompanied by music, wine and Hors d’oeuvres.

I’m really excited about this event and the launch of the new magazine.  Not only do I have an article in the magazine, I’m also really proud to be associated with this effort to better this facet of our small business community.

Explore the Pearl Magazine Wedding Issue

Explore the Pearl Magazine Wedding Issue

Pick up your copy of the new Wedding Issue of Explore the Pearl Magazine . If it’s not in your mailbox, you can download a copy at the Oregonian website.

I’m particularly proud of this issue because it was the direct result of a pitch I made to the Pearl District Business Association and the Oregonian on behalf of wedding-related businesses in the neighborhood who want to highlight the Pearl as the destination to plan and host weddings.

Although it took a little time and effort to make this issue a reality, I think it was well worth it to support such a large group of local businesses.
