men’s fashion: RUNNING RAMPANT.

MANLY MONDAY. {designer} JASON POWERS.

We met Jason back in April when we were putting on a big fashion show/fundraiser for people with disabilities {pics of the event HERE.}. He stepped in to save the day when another designer had dropped out, and we were SO happy to have him.

Not only is he a talented up & coming designer here in Sac, but an absolute sweetheart too. After working together on the show in April, he called a few weeks ago to say he wanted to make me a dress to wear to the upcoming Fashion’s Night Out Event. Just ’cause. See? Sweetheart. I want to show you the sketches for the fun & flirty dress, but they’re under wraps til the show. (!!)  { Rampant on FB. }

This is Jason’s dress in our fundraiser show. It was created from materials sourced from Thrift town. It started out as a large blue formal dress, a paisley skirt, and a pair of men’s pin-striped pants.

Below is a look at last year’s Rampant work…

When we caught up with Jason for the fitting the other day, we asked to see a recent piece (other than our dress), and he showed us some of his sweet new men’s wear…

Really liking this military-inspired lightweight jacket. Easy to throw on
over a t-shirt to add a little casual style to a simple look.

Mr. Powers has some big plans for the near future, one of which is a men’s lifeSTYLE blog. With  girly fashion bloggers abounding (whom we adore), it would be wonderful to have a consistent local guy’s perspective on style. We’ll keep you all in the loop.
In the meantime, go LIKE RAMPANT on FB.
