Live Runway Show

Thursday, May 25, 2023

SH/FT: A Celebration of Fashion Design is a celebration of ingenuity and expression! The event supports Arts for Learning NW and features the creativity of young, talented designers. In partnership with a mentor designer, young designers have teamed up to create original garments made from upcycled materials. Beloved drag performers will showcase the creations down the runway for this fabulous show for 200 guests, live and in-person at Oregon Contemporary (formerly Disjecta Contemporary Art Center) in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland.
