The Good, the Bad, the Ugly: Portland Fashion Week, Reviewed

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Mon, Apr 28, 2014 at 11:59 AM

My issues with Portland Fashion Week are well-documented. Put as succinctly as possible, I think the used of its (very official sounding) name is a power grab that isn't backed up by its content; it's not all bad, but it's a long way from being the event that it should be: one that represents the biggest names in Portland's fashion industry; that debuts the city's most exciting new designs; that every designer in town aspires to be a part of.

Instead what we have is an uneven, three-day "week" of shows that vary wildly in quality and relevance.

See and read more about the strange goings on in the basement of the Memorial Coliseum, with photos by Jaycob Desrosiers and Brianna Nelson on MOD, where my review of Day One (mostly "the Bad and the Ugly") is up now.
