Lucky are we who got to visit the studio of Adam Arnold as part of the Portland Art Museum’s Fashion Tour. In keeping with the Italian Style show (currently on exhibit and not to be missed!) Maestro Arnold was part of the tour to illustrate the art of the handmade as it is living and thriving in downtown Portland.

He even made us cookies to go with our perfect little cups of tea.

Even the jam was handmade!

So now my bucket list includes a custom made garment from Adam Arnold.
