As if you could ask me to do anything better than this! What an itinerary and what a trip! This tour was unlike any I'd ever given. For this, the board and I had two private meetings with the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, fact checking, digging into turn-of-the-century stories, and peeking into the archive of Juneau's historical fashion! Fashion makes up a decent percentage of the museum's archives so it was fun to dabble in. Upon closer inspection we learned that much of the archived pieces belonged to the Snow Family, a traveling group that performed theatrical plays and had quite the collection of wardrobe pieces. The only one that creeped me out was a wig from the 30's made with real hair!

Our Route

We began at the shop, talking about Front Street's history. At one point boats would pull up to the dock here, unloading goods or picking up friends. Madam Mattie Silks was a prostitute in cahoots with Soapy Smith. While Soapy Smith plotted the demise of Skagway, Mattie would lead the men upstairs after the reached the point of no-return in their drinking, take their money, open a door, ushering them in, only for them to quickly drop off the second story directly into the channel! Rude awakening and a total scam haha.

We wound up City Streets, stopping into Vibrational Alchemy which not only sponsored Fashion Week, but also happened to be the present tenant of one of Alaskas most famous designers, Nina Chapman. This woman came to Alaska via the Oregon Trail, first working in the mess halls of the AJ Mine, and later opening her first store by the late 40's. By the 60's she was an international sensation, creating a mod style that was recognizable across the country, Italy, and Denmark. Using local hides, and original closures, she was a legend. And, what's even cooler is that Alaska Fashion Week's Vintage Collection featured a few of her designs!

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum was also another pit stop along our walking route. In celebration of Fashion Week the Museum created several displays of historical clothing. It was simply amazing! A suitcase filled with touchable items, a sketch pad to make your own designs, and so much more! We were so honored, and so blown away by the City's partnership. Please pay them a visit when you get the chance, they are truly a gem!

Next was a secret street that I personally had only discovered about six months ago, and you can bet your ass I was hiding a bottle of whiskey and paper cups in my jacket. Taking in views, sipping, and catching our breath, we stood at the top of a staircase street enjoying ourselves. 

Another delightful surprise and stop on our route was over to Ewing Drygoods' leather studio! Dan opened his studio up to us, poured us more whiskey, and even invited us back to make leather coasters in the shape of Alaska! Another treasured featured designer and a pit stop we'll remember forever!

We eventually wrapped things up crossing over different blocks and bouncing our way back down to Front Street where we ended our tour. Out of all the Fashion Week events, this may have been my favorite ;)

    My husband had the habit of always texting and fixing dates with his old friends including his exes. I never thought there was a problem with such until he became emotionally withdrawn from me and started acting abnormal towards me and my daughter. At this point I knew I needed help urgently because I never wanted to loose him. Dr Isikolo came to my rescue and the problem was fixed. One my husband’s ex vowed to ensure she takes him from him and started manipulating him to abandon me and my daughter which would have eventually happened if Dr Isikolo didn’t stepped in to help me. Just after 48 hours after fixing the problem, everything became amazing between me and my husband and now he has apologized for everything and we are good again. Contact Dr Isikolo and believe he will surely fix that problem for you. Its also important to review his webpage and contact him via ( or WhatsApp him on +234-8133261196

    I and my wife had a misunderstanding which led to a huge fight and she left home and returned back to her fathers house. I let my emotions got the best of me and stayed permanently away from her. Things grew worse when she started seeing another man and I never knew about it. I tried fixing the problem and getting her to return back home and she never came back. I later found out all that has been going on and decided to seek help to fix my marriage with her which made me contact Dr Isikolo. Just as expected he worked for me and the problem was fixed and I am reunited with my wife. She returned back home just after 48 hours as promised by Dr Isikolo. I am forever indebted to him for fixing the problem I had in my marriage. kindly contact him for fast and urgent Help, email him: or WhatsApp him on: +2348133261196 or you can as well review his page (

    You need the best recovery expert at to rescue you from your crypto theft schemes. Lot of con artists have ventured into the crypto investment space where one tends to lose money on a daily basis all with the intent and promise to earn huge profits. No one is bigger than these evil schemes because these people are smart in their ways. They tend to provide contact agreement with you, get you to a group with individuals who have already invested (but all lies) only to make you feel comfortable to invest your hard earned money. I followed their instructions and invested my money only to discover after a few days I’ve been ripped off 5BTC and 8 ETH. I became furious and wanted revenge. I had contacted a few crypto recovery agents but they were all unprofessional until I was introduced to the best crypto tech pro at kingshackerrecovery who got back my money with their prowess and experience in handling fund theft. I got all my funds back to the last penny at an affordable charge. Reasons you need to hire this team for your job are they are swift, reliable and are an affiliate agency to the FTC which approves their legitimacy. They have previously handled many successful cases.
