Announcement   Project Runway Season 11 winner and Portland native, Michelle Lesniak has a passion for smart fashion. Launching her line Au Clothing at Portland Fashion week 2011, she combines traditional Northwest outerwear fabrics in a modern way; focusing on clean tailoring with a city edge.

After attending The School of the Art Institute of Chicago for printmaking, Michelle’s first taste in fashion was launching a small handbag business in 1999. More than 10 years later, finding herself in the Oregon wine industry, Michelle quit her job to follow her dream full-time. Self-taught, dream in hand, Michelle’s line Au Clothing has come full circle, along with her tattoos, to take over the world one garment at a time.

Au is the symbol for gold on the periodic table of the elements, which signifies strength, warmth, optimism, balance and intelligence.

I love this dress! The group of friends with whom I watch Project Runway (we cheered for you the whole time, Michelle!) LOVED this dress and I do, too. Have worn it a couple times in this crazy long Seattle summer, and looking forward to wearing it with leggings and booties in the fall. The fit is perfect, with the small exception of the armholes being a tad long. The details that make it awesome: hemline, leather strap on the zipper, inside-out seam down the back. Most of all, the way it moves, and the POCKETS! <3 4-ever!

About

Winemaker turned Fashion Designer

I quit my career in the Oregon Wine Industry to follow my passion for fashion in 2011, taking the leap of faith and auditioning for Project Runway season 11.

Biggest leap of my life.

Totally worth the jump.

    Sassy and sometimes a little brassy I love what I do. Designing clothing is in my spirit and courses through my blood.
