Portland Fashion Week (from a vegan perspective!) Is Here!!!

The shows start this Thursday! Do you have your tickets? No, I can't get you in for free. Spend a little money, have a great time, and support the "first fashion show in history to present 100% sustainable fashion designs." (Vogue Magazine)

Here's a little more from the Portland Fashion Week website:

Portland Fashion Week® first emerged in 2003 to become the third longest consecutive running Fashion Week in the U.S. and is one of the Most Sustainably Produced Fashion Weeks in the world according to Book Moda the Runway Bible of the World. PFW was also the first fashion show in history to present 100% sustainable fashion designs, as hailed by VOGUE Magazine, and is “The Best Indie Fashion Week in the U.S.” as written about in TIME Magazine. With Portland being home to more winners in Project Runway history than any city, tying the combined total of both LA and NYC with 5, coupled with our DIY can-do ethos and standards of living, we have now become the most respected fashion Hub in America!

My reason for covering PFW is to find out where Vegan and Fashion merge in all this. I'm anxiously awaiting a list of all the designers and food vendors, so I can spread some advance love for all those who have at least some focus on sustainable animal-friendliness. When I know, you'll know! And of course, I plan to be there every night, from Thursday to Sunday snapping pictures, talking to people, and seeing if there's maybe a little room in fashion weeks everywhere for a vegan spotlight. After all, vegans like to dress well too!

Meet me at Portland Fashion Week! Get your tickets. You know you want to go.
