Post No. 6

Alexa Stark can be found in some pretty awesome shops and we thought we'd share a few of them with you, starting with Portland's own Stand Up Comedy.

Located Downtown in the historic Morgan's Alley building, the space had a former life as a jewelry store, which Stand Up Comedy owner Diana Kim has kept intact in her shop design. The front display windows, which were made to display jewelry and therefore don't fit garments, are instead used to display special art installations made on a rotating basis by the designers she stocks. A lighted 'Applause' sign adds a tongue-in-cheek touch. 

Inside, garments run down the middle of the shop while lighted display cases along the walls house complementary accessories including shoes, jewelry, hosiery, books, and skin care. Everything is very carefully chosen and thanks to Kim's curatorial skills and avant garde aesthetic, Stand Up Comedy is known internationally as a go-to for contemporary, artistic, and experimental apparel. 

Shop Stand Up Comedy in person at 511 SW Broadway in Portland, Oregon or online at
