Designer Spotlight: Mia Melon

We are so excited to add the brand Mia Melon to our list of local designers at Show Pony Boutique! Known for their fashionable yet functional weatherproof outerwear, the brand has gained great acclaim through their products’ quality and style.

Launched in 2006, Mia Melon started as a fashion brand inspired by independent art, music and design. One of Mia Melon’s owners had been a pioneer in the West Coast snowboard industry in 1990s, and through the years continued to explore fabric technology.

In 2011, Mia Melon quietly combined these two worlds, launching our first two weatherproof fashion jackets. These were jackets any “it” girl would want to wear. However, unlike other fashion jackets, ours had a twist; they were windproof and waterproof. Just two years later, a tiny collection of jackets represented the bulk of our sales. It was clear we were on to something.

In 2015 we made a bold transition away from streetwear to focus solely on modern, fashionable outerwear that could function as well as the best camping jackets. This was our true niche!

Today we’re continuing to push boundaries with new products, like waterproof fashion hoodies and our new urban commuter jackets. With 100% customer satisfaction and less than .5% product return rate, we are confident we’ve got a product you’re going to love.

When you slip into one of our Mia Melon jackets, coats or hoodies, you’ll wonder why it took so long for something like this to hit the market.

Today, we carry the current styles in stores: Everglades, Stella, Easton Trench, and Provocateur.

Natalie Compagno tell us about her favorite spots to shop

Seattle Tacoma International Airport–Sea-Tac as it is affectionately known–showcases local designers, artists, and icons, making a last minute gift or souvenir purchase easy and fun. “I love the way Sea-Tac supports the small, indie businesses,” Stephanie hara, co-owner of Show Pony, explains about why she moved into the C Gates earlier this year. Show Pony is a longtime Seattle hot spot in the Fremont area and recently opened a second location in the airport. Show Pony spotlights local designers, fashion, and jewelry, as well as gift items. “SometimesI can’t even keep up with the re-stocking,” says Hara about the success she has been experiencing in the new location.

It’s much more than business as usual at Sea-Tac for Hara. She loves the exhilarating momentum of the days, meeting people from all of the globe, and hearing about their adventures. She also appreciates introducing her favorite designers to these travelers. They love the quirky Revival Ink hand screen printed tees and sweatshirts, which feature an octopus or otter holding a coffee mug. How very Seattle!

New Fall Bags!

One of our favorite local designers, Mercy Grey Design, has almost completed a new batch of her stunning pseudo bohemian-Southwestern bags for #ShowPonyBoutique! We cannot wait to receive this shipment and show you all.

Based out of Portland, owner Charity West has always been drawn to the style that her products embody. Conveniently located near a Pendleton Woolen Mill, she was inspired to use their beautiful patterns in her designs. The bright, bold colors and patterns are a constant source of inspiration for the designer. She combines the wool fabric with rustic leather straps and details to create a refreshing look out of locally sourced and recycled materials (two things we LOVE!).

Which bag are you most excited to see? What bag style is your go-to for the busy fall season? Tell us in the comments!

Designer Spotlight: Amy Burgess of Forge + Fire

If you’ve been to either of our stores lately, you’ve probably seen some of the products from one of our newest designers. The beautiful earrings pictured below are created by Amy Burgess of Forge + Fire, a fiery creative whose love of bright gemstones translated into the passion project that has become her business. Read more about her story below!

I’ve always needed a creative outlet and have dabbled in everything from watercolor to stained glass. I realized as a teenager that the craft I felt most connected to was jewelry making. I make jewelry that I would wear, so there’s a little bit of my personal style in each piece. The sleek lines of forged and fused metal, mixed metal chain, labradorite, green amethyst, and pyrite are some of my favorite things to work with.

I’m inspired by the seasons. I use bright gemstones, like Turquoise and Carnelian, during warm months. I work with dark pearls and smokey gemstones in the winter. I’m constantly researching and experimenting with new metalsmithing techiques. Learning something new helps me evolve and re-ignites my passion for jewelry. I keep up with trends to stay relevent, but my emphasis isn’t placed so much on what’s trendy now, as it is on designing pieces that are timeless.

I recycle all of my scrap metal and I buy my materials from local businesses as much as possible.

Recycled and local?! It’s a #ShowPonyBoutique dream.

Building Your #ShowPonyBoutique Capsule Wardrobe

It’s likely that you’ve heard rumblings of this term for some time now: capsule wardrobe. The most basic definition of the idea is “a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don’t go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces”. The concept has become popularized for a myriad of reasons, one among them being that it is more ecofriendly than buying cheap, trendy pieces that you wear infrequently and then discard. For those of you familiar with our values here at Show Pony Boutique, you know that being environmentally conscious is one of the core foundations of our business. It seems only natural that the capsule wardrobe be something that we promote! Capsule wardrobes are typically built on around 40 or so items that you absolutely love and can interchange endlessly. Read on below to check out some of our fall capsule wardrobe must haves!

COA – Knotted Roll Up Dress in Black

The little black dress is a staple among capsule wardrobe aficionados.

Prairie Underground – Long Cloak Hoodie in Black

COA – Checkmate Coat in Black & White

Prairie Underground – Denim Girdle in Denim
