As an alumni of the Art Institute of Portland I can attest to the countless hours spent by students, faculty, models, crew, and volunteers it takes to put a show of this magnitude on! Seniors in the Apparel Design Program put their heart and soul into this one big moment, their senior collection. Fashion Marketing majors produce and plan the giant event from start to finish. Each year the Apparel program teams up with a different major to showcase a special segment on the runway, this year they have chosen the Animation kids to partner with. Held at Pure Space, the show is set for June 1st with a silent auction at 6:30, and show starting at 8pm. With over 20 senior collections being shown, this event is a must-see for fresh upcoming talent new to the Portland scene. With predecessors ranging from reigning fashion queen Eden Dawn, to Project Runway contestant Bryce Black, and countless more I absolutely love attending this show each year. Get tickets here before they’re gone.
