Modified Style 2013

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Tue, Jun 25, 2013 at 9:59 AM

Now in its fifth year in existence, the non-profit fundraising all-comer fashion show Modified Style has announced that this year's event will take place on September 26 at Refuge PDX.

As ever, anyone can participate—more about creativity than ready-to-wear, Modified is a popular way for hobbyists, artists and crafters whose work is usually in a medium outside of apparel to try out a runway experience, using only provided scrap material. They show alongside more seasoned veterans of the sewing machine, perhaps most notably having launched Ms. Wood onto her path to current prominence. And they're also adding a showcase for designers under 18.

It's a good vibe-y, high energy kind of affair, but my favorite aspect of the event is its charitable one, which focuses on three worthy area non-profits a year. 2013's lineup of recipients includes Sisters Of The Road, The Pixie Project, and Bark.

Currently they're still booking designers (contact Lizz for more info) and volunteers for "poster hanging, set up, hair, makeup, bartending, waste monitoring, lighting, production, ticket sales, check in, gopher, security or odd jobs" (email Shaunna on that tip). Or just come check out the Portland fashion show that takes itself the least seriously.
