Press Release Body: Seattle musician Jonas de Varona has designed a line of clothing and bags under the name Meet Me Here. The Fall 2008 line was previewed at the McLeod Residence on August 1st. It includes bags made from recycled materials sourced locally as well as tops and skirts made from hand painted silk, nylon and non woven fabrics. All pieces are made to order - cut and sewn by Jonas - and are available through the MMH website.

"The internet has leveled the playing field for independent businesses by allowing them access to a much wider audience than was possible 10 years ago," said de Varona.

The Meet Me Here fall line is muted black white and grey tones. Crisp angular jackets accentuate bubble shapes with splashes of flowing bright blue, yellow and silver. The line expresses the designer's love of structure and contrast creating a feel that is spacious and chic.

In May MMH caught the eye of art and design blog Man Made Lakes. August 1st marked the first show for MMH at the at the Mcleod Residence. The event was hosted by What Why Design, a new quarterly event showcasing emerging Seattle designers. This month MMH is featured in the October syle issue of Seattle Metropolitan magazine along side of ferings from Barney's, Nordstroms, and Impulse as well as other top boutiques.

"Most of the shapes I make are not flattering in a typical sort of way. this is because I like the architectural aspects of clothing. I'm much more interested in making a unique shape thats wearable than trying to flatter someone's body," said de Varona. "To me this is where the mystery lies."

On Dec 11 MMH will participate in a gallery show at Vermillion gallery with Seattle designers Grey pants, I&M and others. The event will behosted by Join Design Seattle.

Jonas de Varona has played and/or recorded with Throw Me The Statue, Chocolate, Reggie Watts, Darius Wilrich, Joe Syverson and others.
