Open Air Museum is an apparel label designed and produced in Portland, Oregon. The line finds its influence in minimal Japanese silhouettes, primitive sculpture, and a oneness in the relationship between art and nature. Our made-to-order apparel brings form and function to focus through an emphasis on sustainable material and transcending shapes that wear with ease and sophistication.
Designer, Shea Christner, has a BFA in textiles from Savannah College of Art & Design located in Savannah, Georgia. Her training in traditional techniques and processes with fibers propelled her into a career in fashion design. With sustainability being a factor Shea could not ignore in the textile industry, conscious sourcing became the center of her design ethos throughout her studies. She focused her senior portfolio on conscious sourcing for wearables, and since has built the OAM label around the slow fashion movement- conscious consumerism of sustainable, long-lasting, effortless fashion.
