Twenty years of fashion. That means going back to 1992—a year marked by super angular jackets, wide shoulders, wide hips, and plaid everywhere. For most of us, the garments we proudly wore then have long since made their way to the Salvation Army—and with good reason. Sure, the best of your Kurt Cobain-era wardrobe might be currently resting on a rack in a vintage store near you, but those pieces would be the exception. And yet, that’s the paradox of fashion. What today seems an unthinkable outfit was, some years ago, the absolute height. It takes a certain vision and integrity to be able to keep up over the years—to weather the fashion industry’s inherent fickleness. It takes an understanding of what makes something classic, combined with a forward-thinking eye.
This weekend, Sima Blue, owner of Trillium, celebrates the boutique’s 20 year anniversary. In honor of this anniversary, Trillium won’t be busting out the well-aged parachute pants from days of yore. Rather, the boutique is hosting two fantastic trunk shows featuring local designers J and J Feld Designs (on Friday) and Bethesda’s Marti (on Saturday). Both shows are 11am-5pm. If you need an additional reason to stop by and continue to support Trillium, you can feel great knowing that a portion of proceeds will be donated to the House of Ruth.
Trillium is located in Greenspring Station. 10749 Falls Road in Lutherville.
