Hempstalk Fashion Show Mixes Beauty and Art With Natural StyleTim King Salem-News.com
Hemp Fashions range from the semi-nude to the downright classy.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - A diverse set of models displayed the latest Hemp Fashions over the weekend at Hempstalk in Portland. Thousands watched as the different styles were shown, all 100% made from the marijuana or cannabis plant.
Hemp is the term that refers to the industrial strains of the plant. They have historically been used for everything from food and fuel, to medicine, clothing and food.
Angela from Sea of Green Art in Seaside, Oregon, organized the troupe and explained to the crowds what the different types of clothing were, while discussing their functionality and applications.
One of the models is a double mastectomy breast cancer survivor, one is a young man, and the rest each carry their notable tributes, or lack of them, in some cases.
As it turns out, all Hemp Fashions don't involve full body covering, and paints were used to conceal the details on three of the models. The semi-nudity is an interesting aspect of this memorable show.
Angela praised Paul and Theresa Stanford from The THCF Clinic, who organized Hempstalk, for their support and encouragement. Already in the planning stages for next year Angela says, is a fashion show that will be about war and peace.
