This Weekend's Style Events

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Fri, Apr 25, 2014 at 11:14 AM

The concentration of stylish events across the city this weekend is moderate to medium-high. On the menu:

—Tonight marks day one of the spring edition of Portland Fashion Week, a three-day series. Basic Rights Oregon is the beneficiary of tickets sales tonight, though it features a rather ho-hum lineup of designs from the likes of Columbia Sportswear and UnderU4Men. (The latter, granted, always tends to be a crowd-pleaser: men in tiny underpants!) Things pick up considerably for tomorrow's show, with accomplished bridal designer Sunjin Lee and new designs from fun-loving lines like Hello Eliza, Brady Lange, and Bryce Black, among others. The final night features an always-popular showcase from the Art Institute of Portland's pool of design students and graduates. Memorial Coliseum, 300 N Winning, Fri April 25-Sun April 27, for times and ticket prices

RAW Textiles—which just released a gorgeous spring/summer line of scarves—is moving out of its current studio space and hosting a sale to lighten its moving load. RAW Textiles, 411 SE 81st, Sat April 26-Sun April 27, 11 am-4 pm

—I'm not gonna vet the claim that "The Biggest Clothing Swap in the Northwest" really is. It's big, you say? Good enough for me. A bag of discards and five bucks will get you in the door, where you can grab a cocktail while you judiciously peruse options to trade up for. The Secret Society, 116 NE Russell, Sun April 27, 11 am-3 pm
