Bettie Page Clothing bringing femme fatale fashions to Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. - Hyper feminine clothing inspired by one of Playboy Magazine’s first Playmates is headed to Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Bettie Page Clothing, named for the 1950s fetish model and pin-up photos (per its website), will open in February at the 1,900-square-foot former Jessica McClintock space,  818 S.W. Broadway, just a few doors south of downtown Portland’s living room.

It will be the first Northwest outlet for Bettie Page, which has 11 stores in seven states, chiefly Nevada and California.

Caryl Brown of Kidder Mathews represented Bettie Page, operated by Las Vegas-based Tatyana Designs Inc. (OTC Pink: TATD). Brad Macomber of Norris & Stevens Inc. represented the property.

Despite its prominent location facing Fox Tower and the downtown Nordstrom store, the space has been empty for about three years. A deal is pending for a neighboring space.

Tatyana Designs reported $10 million in sales in 2012.
