Emerging Designer Contest

The judging sheets have been tallied and with the top 6 designers being separated by only 0.9 points, we are proud to announce the three designers who will open Portland Fashion Week® FUTURE OF FASHION Show presented by THE ART INSTITUTE OF PORTLAND.

CONGRATULATIONS to the 2013 Emerging Fashion Designer Winners BRIANA JACOBS, KAREN DAVIS and RACHEL RECTOR.

And with such a close contest, we wanted to give special acknowledgment to the runner ups who were within barely one point from winning; Kirsten Longly, Amy Sim, Lauren Graebner, Sara Weiner.
