Over the holidays the fashion show circuit around here went into winter hibernation mode. Thankfully for those of us whom need a fix, we now have one on the horizon to look forward to. Producer Elizabeth Mollo, who has helped put together Portland Fashion Week and The Doom Town/Sweet F.A. Rock and Roll shows, has carefully curated a group of designers to shake us out of our heavy sleep.
On February 29th (Leap Day), the pushing-the-boundaries fashion show where designers are going outside the box regarding their runway presentation will kick off at The Crystal Ballroom. According to Mollo, Fade to Light “aims to not just be a fashion show, but to be an experience that leaves the viewer with a solid understanding of each designer and the collections being shown.”
So who are we going to see? Expect new designs from Solestruck in collaboration with Australian brand Black Milk, Studio SKB by Project Runway alum Bryce Black, Chicago Harper by Joshua Buck, Ms. Wood, and Clair Vintage Inspired. Topping of this night of great fashion will be a live performance by local dream pop band Blouse, who will be fresh off of their European Tour. DJ Gregarious will provide music and visuals.
Tickets are available now. Runway seating is limited.
