For the last two February’s fashion overtook the stage at the Crystal Ballroom normally reserved for bearded musicians or wedding toasts. But, for the first incarnation of a summer show, Fade to Light presents its third showing of runway collections from local designers.

The fashion fest, while still relatively young, comes to us from seasoned producer Elizabeth Mollo whose illustrious production career includes positions at Alley 33, FashioNXT and former backstage manager of Portland Fashion Week. Why is that important? Because it means the show will go off as smooth as a freshly done Keratin Treatment.

Snag your tickets before next Wednesday’s show to see collections from the likes of newbie designer collaboration Bad Wolf Clothier, menswear from the always innovative Joshua Buck with his Chicago Harper line, and the always entertaining Bryce Black.
