Downhouse began as a group of friends and artists living in downtown Atlanta in 2014. Together we took on a unique yet 'undesirable' space and transformed it into living, studio and work spaces during a time when it was seemingly impossible for a lot of young creatives to find anything affordable. Very soon we began to host pop-up events, gallery shows and musical performances. For a few years Downhouse was a truly collective effort and one of the few LGBTQIA operated DIY spaces in ATL. Since then I, Logan Rhodes, have taken on sole ownership of the shop, and relocated to Portland, Oregon.
The shop is a collection of eclectic vintage clothing and found objects. Each piece has been hand-selected and reimagined for a modern aesthetic. I view all clothing as non-gendered, and I strive to represent diversity within our imagery. When sourcing I focus on colors, comfort and longevity. I try to select high quality fabrics and construction that has stood the test of time.
The shop was put on hiatus during the COVID-19 Pandemic, but I have finally been able to resume sourcing and shooting a new collection <3 I am focusing on sourcing more sustainable packaging, paying less attention to trends, and being less involved with social media. I want to have more time to participate in efforts of community mutual aid, helping to mitigate the ongoing climate crisis' and staying politically active.
I truly appreciate all of your continued support through the years, and I am looking forward to evolving the shop to meet the needs and tastes of where we are now as a culture.
