Portland is so lucky. The fact that we have multiple fashion shows and an accredited institute dedicated to the promotion of the fashion industry, is just one part of an impressively large network of suppliers, designers, retailers and skilled sewists that make up our fashion sector in this city. Next week you'll be able to see and cheer on the latest creations by 7 designers at Portland Fashion Institute's Fashion Forward show. The show is on Saturday, April 23rd at 975 SE Sandy. Read more from the designers here. While you're there, check out their class list. Portland Fashion Institute and Portland Sewing offer a wonderful array of classes, ranging from beginner to professional, pattern drafting to business creation. Proceeds from the show go to a scholarship fund for the Institute. We are proud sponsors of this event and encourage you all to check it out!
