Portland Fashion Week
Since 2002 Portland Fashion Week has striven to create a fashion-based business with a network of domestic and international resources to support emerging designers. Through annual events, our full annual calendar brings together designers, models, media, stylists, celebrities, and VIPs in support of the Portland fashion communities, utilizing a percentage of the proceeds to benefit charity and support the education of the future fashion visionaries. The driving force behind Portland Fashion Week is the philosophy of “Slow Fashion”. This revolutionary perspective is founded on the idea of non-impulsive buying; using awareness as the basis for understanding the quality and value of clothing as well as its origination. Therefore, Portland Fashion Week believes that sustainable practices, including reducing, reusing, and recycling, will fully encompass all of the aforementioned values associated with slow fashion. This standard, Portland Fashion Week has adopted in all aspects of production, community support, educational programs, and designer selection. Thanks to these philosophies we’ve had more Project Runway alum show at Portland Fashion week than LA and NY combined.
