On Saturday, April 28 (that's a change from its earlier stated date on April 29), Portland Sewing will launch the eight designers graduating from its comprehensive Fashion Forward program. The show will feature Fall 2012 collections from Bryce Black and Joshua Buck, both collaborators with Portland Sewing founder Sharon K Blair's own line, Studio SKB.
As for the eight graduates, they are all new names on the local scene. In the next couple weeks I'll be able to share small previews of the work that will be shown, but for now Blair has released their names along with two-word summations of what they are producing. So, off to Google I went. Click over to see what I was able to sleuth out.
