PORTLAND FASHION WEEK a production of PORTLAND FASHION COUNCIL, LLC
Portland Fashion Week was born in 2003 from a Portland fashion incubator and is now the 3rd longest running fashion week after New York and LA. In 2012, founding member Tod Foulk teamed up with fashion industry professionals Sarabeth Chambers and Jessica Kane to create Portland Fashion Council LLC to produce Portland Fashion Week.
The “Sundance” of Fashion Weeks
Portland Fashion Week® is an experience like no other merging a high fashion production with the Portlander appreciation for art, music, sustainable living and community involvement. As the nation’s third longest running fashion week behind New York and Los Angeles, and recently named the #1 Major City Fashion Week to attend, will celebrate its 10 year anniversary September 2013 with a renewed vision, a new downtown Portland location and change in management.
Portland Fashion Week® continues to be one of the most sought-after events in the Northwest, setting the stage for high-level brands, products, and services. The five-day affair showcases the industry’s most notable designers exclusively to industry professionals through world-class runway shows, guaranteeing brand exposure to Portland Oregon and fashion elite.
With the top-notch guest list and global media coverage, Portland Fashion Week® reaches nearly 2 million consumers a year, and continues to grow every year.
THE MISSION OF PORTLAND FASHION WEEK® IS TO ENHANCE THE REGION’S APPAREL DESIGN AND RETAIL ECONOMY BY MARKETING PORTLAND AS A PREFERRED FASHION CREATING AND BUYING DESTINATION.
The Portland Fashion Week Schedule will feature the highest production values, live entertainment, parties around the city and fashion inspirations representing the diverse city we love, but most importantly focusing on connecting the consumer to the seller and the designer to the buyer.
RE-ENVISIONED FROM THE GROUND UP, MEET THE NEW PORTLAND FASHION WEEK®
