Portland fashion now has its own organization dedicated to Latino "Event Coordinators, Fashion Designers, Models, Photographers, Stylists, Make-Up Artists, Musicians, Dancers and more," called Latin Fashion PDX, and an opportunity to get acquainted with some of its participants is right around the corner. The Latin Fashion PDX Runway Show on Friday, Feb 17 will feature seven local designers, including Adah Lux and Julian Stefoni of The Funk Parlor, followed by the weekly Latin Dance Party thrown by Noche PDX at Qube Ultra Lounge. I've never been to Qube Lounge, and I've frankly not heard of most of the designers showing at this event, and that's perfect if the idea of this kind of organization is to unite in order to bring its members greater visibility and show us something we don't already know. On the other hand, this poster does not say "fashion" to me. Regardless, stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
