Eager for Fashion(xt)

While it may be a month away, I am counting down the days to 2012 Portland Fashion Week. Having missed it for the last three (yes, three) years I am determined to be there this time. Now as it is weeks away I have been searching around for the details and found some basics you'll need to know. PFW is going by the name FASHIONxt - a fashion forward lifestyle experience. Expanding from the concept of the latest and greatest in fashion it is now about the entire lifestyle, including consumer-technology. 

In true Portland style it is conscious of sustainability, modern technology and of course, the ever-important aesthetics that catch our eye. This little vehicle the Boxx is only 1 meter and an example of the many mini technology designs which will be on display. 

October 10 to 13 at the Vigor Industrial Shipyard you can catch an array of designers from Amanda Grisham, a Portland Fashion Week Emerging Designer in 2011 to Lanzanita, who helped bring sustainability to the forefront at the Miss America Pageant. It is also riddled with Project Runway contestants from locals like Seth Aaron and Becky Ross to favorites like Joshua Christensen and Viktor Luna. Pick up tickets in advance for a reduced price here. Stay stylish.
