2nd SHIFT Designer Info Session

Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) – Resource Room
SHIFT: an experiment in fashion design is a fundraiser and runway fashion show for The Right Brain Initiative (a program of the Regional Arts & Culture Council)!
We are putting out a call-to-designers/design teams of all ages and skill levels to submit garments made from nontraditional and found materials. Each piece will display inventive form, style and a creative juxtaposition—shifting the materials from their original form into wearable couture. A panel of local celebrity judges will award three cash prizes to the top designers/design teams and one designer/design team will be named People’s Choice by our audience!
