Is it just me or has 2013 proven to be more chockablock with fashion events than any other year in Portland? And not one dud in the bunch so far. Next up is Art of Garment, which Cassie Ridgway is pulling off without even having taken a break after the killer Unmentionable lingerie show she just co-produced. Now she's teaming up with Summer Killingsworth for the presentation of "a lovely assortment of sketches and renderings, pattern pieces, and finished works" from a great lineup that includes more than a few of the lines seen at her last event, like Aniela Parys, her own Mag-Big, R.A.W. Textiles, and Under the Root.
In addition there will be work from Emily Katz, Heather Treadway, and—GASP—current-season Project Runway contender Michelle Lesniak Franklin's AU Clothing. It's First Friday, so make sure you add it to your eastside list: March 1 at Union/Pine, 7-11 pm, free!
