If you live in the Northwest, I recommend you check out Portland Fashion Week’s Display Fashion Show, Party & Auction: March 27 8pm-11pm. Several acclaimed designers will launch signature pieces from their Fall/Winter 2008 collections through a fashion display, party, and auction benefiting the Children’s Cancer Association (www.childrenscancerassociation.org). These never-before-seen pieces will be auctioned off at this event. Respective designers will fit apparel to the highest bidder before the pieces are even available on the market.

Make a weekend of it and check out the more of Portland Fashion Week (PFW) at the Better Living Show. I am going to participating in the events on Saturday and looking forward to it.

PFW will present a Spring Fashion Event at the Better Living Show. There will be two parts to this event on Saturday, March 28. Here is what the press release said:

Eco-fashion panel and Installation Fashion Show
In a high-fashion atmosphere, the panelists will explain the eco-fashion ethos and highlight how it saves the environment. Leading national personalities in eco fashion like Lesley Hoffman, Executive Director of Earthpledge (New York) and Rebecca Luke, Co-founder of Sustainable Style Foundation (Seattle) will participate in the panel.

Installation Fashion Show with nationally known eco-fashion labels:
Featuring Fall/Winter 2008 Collections from Nau and Lizzie Parker
Special Guest Designer Anna Cohen featuring select pieces with sustainability focus
All 3 designers to discuss green-fashion design and production process with the Eco-Fashion Panel

In addition, PFW Plaza will feature a display of signature pieces of some of the acclaimed designers’ Fall/Winter 2008 collections March 28 – 30. These never-before-seen pieces will be auctioned off at this event. Respective designers will fit apparel to the highest bidder before these pieces are even available on the market.

The Better Living Show looks amazing and is chalk full of fabulous panels, installations and displays, including a book signing by Ed Begley, Jr. The weekend will be full of info about sustainable lifestyle choices, right up our alley. There is no charge for the Better Living Show. Check out the full schedule at betterlivingshow.org.

I hope to see you in PDX.

  3. Eco Fashions The Better Living Show ended up being a letdown. My husband and I attended and it was a “sparse” event. The fashion piece of the show was not particularly good and not well organized. Eco fashions have a long to way to go, but I think designers are making some progress.

  4. I really liked the Better I really liked the Better Living Show. There were a lot of interesting products and companies there for people of all different interests. The fashion piece was interesting and fun to watch, and seeing as this was the first year of the show I’m amazed that the show was as big as it was. I can’t wait for next year.
