SHIFT: An Experiment In Fashion Design

This is a past event. Thursday, September 21, 2017 9:00pm more dates through September 21, 2017

Leftbank Annex 101 N. Weidler, Portland, OR 97227

Please join the Regional Arts & Culture Council on September 21, 2017 at 6 p.m., along with some of the region’s most innovative design thinkers, during their first annual celebration of equitable education, creativity in the classroom and sustainable fashion benefiting The Right Brain Initiative.

Whether participants are novice creators or seasoned taste-makers, in their first annual runway show, both rookies and established designers/design teams alike have been invited to debut runway garments made from recycled materials and found objects. Whether glued or stapled, sewn or woven, each piece will display inventive form, unique style and a creative juxtaposition—shifting the materials from their original form into wearable couture.

Come for the fashion, stay for the reception-style fusion fare, tasty adult libations, whimsical post-show dessert and surprise guest performances to celebrate The Right Brain Initiative’s 10 fantastic years of bringing arts integration into K-8 schools.
