Love the swanky old school boudoir feel of this boutique, which I always thought was a bridal shop but is actually full of unique dresses for any special occasion, even grown up prom. And if you're trying to source clothing responsibly, they get all their fair trade silk from a family run Himalayan farm.
Pure Elegance – A couple of months before our wedding, my fiancee and I were strolling along 23rd. We both stopped in front of the window at Lena Mendoyeff's studio and stared at the most elegant white dress. We both knew instantly that was my wedding dress. From the moment we walked in the service was impecable. The selection, although somewhat limited, was stunning. I grew up in Europe and travel back every year. Few things here impress me, but I was higly impress with the beautiful fabrics and the elegant designs at Lena Mendoyeff. Just two days ago we walked by again and purchased my new years party dress. Again, the service was fantastic and this time I even got to meet the designer herself. She was super nice and helpful. Thank you for always keeping me elegant and stylish. Definite must see before any special occasion.
Dream come true! – I recently dropped into Lena's on a shopping trip to 23rd with my best friend. Inadvertantly, I discovered what will be one of two beautiful dresses worn at my wedding. The customer service was impeccable and the dresses exquisite. The shop has the feel of a Parisian boutique without being pretentious. Simply fabulous!
Miracle on NW 23rd – I was on NW 23rd and had 1 hour to find a dress for a very important event that day. I was relieved and pleased to find help at Lena Medoyeff. The salesperson was attentive and helpful, but not in an overbearing way at all. She understood my needs perfectly. The clothes are all exuisite and come in all sizes, including large and extra large! There are beautiful fabrics of all textures and cuts. All of this is truly a miracle when it comes to finding beautiful, elegant clothes for larger sizes. The whole experience was wonderful and I will buy all of my evening clothes here from now on.
After finding out that Lena Medoyeff is an Oregon Episcopal School alum, I became even PROUDER of my recently purchased dress from her 23rd Ave. store. I think a lot of people must go into the store just to look around... I'm thinking teenagers. Because when I was in there for the first 20 minutes, no one acknowledged me. But as soon as I asked them for assitance they were more than willing to give me a hand. The women there were incredibly nice and seemed pretty genuine. It was a very classy atmosphere, which I appreciated. Lena Medoyeff sells simply beautiful dresses. I was/still am impressed.
Portland's gem – Lena is fabulous! Her style shines through in every piece of clothing. Not only is she a local designer but I have heard the clothes are all made locally in Portland, what could be better. The fabrics are stunning and the styles are timeless. I purchased my wedding dress from here and it is unbelievable, the most gorgeous wedding dress I have ever seen. My guests were all impressed with the beauty of this gown. The best part is many of the items can be worn everyday not just to formal affairs.
Beautiful fabrics make a special store – I agree that Lena's has an incredible flair for the fabrics they choose and the beautiful designs created. I spent hours at the store yesterday with one of my closest friends and we heard first hand of the owner's success. The style is timeless and you'll be able to wear these items for years to come. I never have a problem paying more money for great quality and unique clothing items.
LENA IS #1 – These clothes are so far superior to what is available in most stores in Portland. The designer uses the finest fabrics, and the finish work is impeccable. This store should be number one in the citysearch poll. For the woman who has discriminating taste, albeit a large clothing budget, there is no better store in Portland for unique and finely made women's clothing.
Prettiest Clothes In Portland – I have been hoping for a store like Lena's for years. I found them when they were still on Hawthorne. Now that they are on 23rd, they still offer the finest women's clothing in Portland. I found out that they have a location in Los Angeles, and immediately called my friends there, because the clothes are amazing. Not inexpensive, these clothes are definitely an investment. If you want beautiful clothes that will get mentions from everyone, and are not cheap or "trendy", go see Lena. She is amazing.
