Earlier this month a fabulous fashion extravaganza was occurring while many were enjoying a parade of the Rose Festival. Pure Space in the Pearl district of my beloved Portland was filled with 900 of Portland's upcoming dazzling designers, established (and adored) designers and fashion lovers (plus yours truly).

Portland Monthly's Fashion Editor (and previous apparel and textile designer), Eden Dawn and Kami Gray, Personal and Film Stylist co-chaired The Art Institute of Portland's annual fashion show with program coordinator Sue Bonde. Fit2Print was a fashion show of epic proportions and OSI Photography caught it all from pre-show set-up, to backstage, to the after party. The first half was all Art Institute student collaborations conveying a message (hence fit to print). The second half was composed of senior collections from talented recent grads. Check out OSI Photography for all the best images. (Legally I can't post them.)
Enjoy the fashions!
