One of Portland's most feel-good fashion shows, Modified Style has just put out the call seeking artists to participate in the 2012 edition, accepting submissions through February 15. Established in Portland in 2009 as a benefit for local charities (this year's beneficiaries are The Pixie Project, Sisters of the Road, and CHAP), it encourages all comers to take a whack at designing a showstopping look. Whether you're a professional or experienced designer (probably the event's most notable alumni is Ms. Wood, who went on to become a major force in the local industry), a first-timer, or an artist who typically works in another medium, you're invited to participate.
This year the event will go down on May 6 at Staver Locomotive, hosted by mayoral candidate Jefferson Smith and with DJ Hot Biology. Email them ASAP for more info on participating—models and volunteers too!
