The Best Way to Experience Portland is by Bike

It’s warm. It’s sunny (sometimes) and it’s time for Bike City, Portland Oregon to awake!

Schmidt designed the entire dress on his iPad and communicated with Bitonti through Skype during the process of imagining 17 unique pieces and 3,000 joints that let the dress move with the body.

Groups of men with tear drop tattoos (traditionally prison tattoos) and being the only white…
