As if Pioneer Courthouse Square wasn’t close enough, Portland’s Fashionable events continue in our neighborhood. FashioNXT runs tomorrow October 8th through Saturday under the big tent at NW 9th between Northrup and Overton, on the empty lot between the Encore and Marriott’s Residence Inn.
FashioNXT is a world-class runway show showcasing “What’s Next in Fashion” and this year features a stellar designer-lineup: Project Runway winners and All-Stars, and designers from Portland, New York, LA and China.
For all four days, exhibits, shopping and pre-event cocktails are available for ticket-holders from 6:00, with runway show seating at 8:00pm every evening. Following the show, all guests, press and buyers are invited to a Designer Meet’n’Greet and Market Hour in the VIP Lounge. After that, if you’re still game, an after-party will be held each night (the first night at the Benson Hotel and the other nights at the former P. F. Chang’s in the Brewery Blocks (corner of NW Couch and 12th). For more information or to purchase tickets please CLICK HERE.
