Art Institute of Portland Fashion Show: Crowd Watching

Posted by Elizabeth Mollo on Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 10:11 AM

This past Saturday Night I attended the 2012 Art Institute of Portland Fashion Show, reveling in the fact that I could just sit back and watch a fashion show instead of yelling and running around backstage as I normally do. As an Ai alum myself I look forward to this show every year, as it gives me a chance to reconnect with faculty and alumni, as well as scope out the fresh new talent coming out of the school. I did end up working a little though because I was on the hunt to photograph the best looking outfits of the night outside of the runway, and the audience of this show did not disappoint. It seemed like many apparel industry oriented people of Portland were in attendance; from local designers, boutique owners, and press to champions and cheerleaders of fashion in general. Here are the best shots of the night:
