The evening’s activities will begin at 6pm with music and fun in the courtyard – guests are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy, or purchase delicious items from our food truck friends: Amelia's, Pidgin Hole, and Pips Donuts! Beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, will also be available for purchase. The SH/FT runway show, with general (unassigned) seating inside the venue, will be performed at 7pm (sold out) and 8:30pm and will last about 40 minutes. Courtyard activities, including accessory-making, photo wall, and music by DJ Mickey, will continue during the first runway show and up until the second show begins. Our Golden Ticket raffle winner will be drawn by Poison Waters at 8pm, and the online auction will close at 10pm. Recommended attire is smart casual or casual cocktail, with upcycled accessories encouraged! Please note: the courtyard area includes both paved areas and grass; stiletto heels are not recommended.
SH/FT: A Celebration of Fashion Design is a celebration of ingenuity and expression! The event supports Arts for Learning NW and features the creativity of young, talented designers. In partnership with a mentor designer, young designers have teamed up to create original garments made from upcycled materials. Celebrated drag performers will showcase the creations down the runway for this fabulous show for 200+ guests, live and in-person at Oregon Contemporary (formerly Disjecta Contemporary Art Center) in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland.
ALNW board and staff have been hard at work rallying the community to support the SH/FT program and all the other ways our organization is connecting young people with diverse arts and creative experiences, and making the arts abundantly accessible in schools and communities - be sure to check out and bid on packages of unique items and experiences in our auction, which will open two days before the SH/FT Runway Show!
