Roses ‘n’ Razzies

ROSE (roz) n. One of the most beautiful of all flowers, a symbol of fragrance and loveliness. Often given as a sign of appreciation.
RASPBERRY (raz’ber’e) n. A sharp, scornful comment, criticism or rebuke; a derisive, splatting noise, often called the Bronx cheer.
We hereby deliver:

• ROSES to Laura Nash of Philomath, whose sense of style is awakening a return to big-time, old-time and all-time fashion and style that we hope will sweep the nation.
Nash is one of eight Oregon State University students, faculty and alumni who showcased designs during Portland Fashion Week.
We love Nash’s “modern vintage” look and are pleased that we were able to display a photograph that included a photo caption reference to her “roushed and beaded, asymmetrical mermaid-styled wedding gown.”
OK, so the “we” that we refer to are mostly the women on the Gazette-Times news staff, but men, too, can appreciate that a return to the stylish glam of the 1940s and ’50s.
Nash, a 46-year-old mother of four, is living proof that dreams can take root and thrive at any time in life. We hope we’ll be seeing some of Nash’s fashion on runway models in Milan some day soon.

...Laura Nash also offered a clearly defined collection but in a completely different direction. Her gowns had the glamour and sophistication of old Hollywood. The segment opened with a white dress with black dalmation spot like print. Accessorized with a big brim feathery hat it looked oh-so Audrey. And if you have to ask Audrey who? Go read a sports blog. The draping of the fabric on Laura's evening gowns is impressive.
