“YOU CANNOT MAKE A REVOLUTION WITH CHANEL GLOVES.”
COMRADE STALIN--aside from being the most beloved leader and teacher, the upholder and developer of Marx-Engels-Lenin thought, the practical leader of great genius, the tireless builder of the new world order in the most creative manner, the foundation of Soviet industrialization, the tiller of Soviet agriculture, the most modest and generous servant of the people, the proponent of rigorous self-criticism within the Party in order to liquidate our mistakes and weakness, in his profound words, “to be more sympathetic to the masses,” the resolute champion of the struggle for a happy life for all peoples of the world, the recognized leader in the hard struggle to liberate mankind from the yoke of Fascism during the Great Patriotic War, the banner of peace in the minds of people of all countries—is, without a doubt, the greatest fashion icon, the greatest (and sassiest) supermodel, the greatest fashion illustrator, and the greatest fashion photographer the fashion world has ever known!
LONG LIVE COMRADE STALIN, THE FAIREST DICTATOR OF THEM ALL!

About Oranj Studio
Oranj Studio was founded by Tamara and Eric Dayton. They opened this studio with the focus of bringing to Portland a truly creative space. A place where style, fashion and art could co-exist and feed off each other. The concept was simple, build a beautiful exhibit space and put a luxury salon down the middle.
