Welcome to the sixth annual 2017 FashioNXT Week
Recognized by Portland Mayor as the Official Fashion Week of the city
FashioNXT is a fashion week in the most contemporary sense, showcasing “what’s next in fashion”. Annually, on the second week of October, FashioNXT week premiers the next season’s collections of extraordinary designers on the runway. What’s next in fashion is fashion-technology — wearables and 3D printed fashion, as well as the novel ways technology enables people to experience fashion. FashioNXT presents an innovative fashion experience in Portland, a city recognized globally for its “cool”.
In 2017 FashioNXT week, designers from all over the US and the world — as far as from Dubai, and as close as from Seattle, will join the most exciting designers from Portland. Project Runway winners and allstars — Portland’s own Michelle Lesniak and Seth Aaron will draw the eyes of the industry with their avant-garde creation. Inspired by Japanese sensibility, on his runway Seth Aaron will launch the world’s first ready to wear designers collections of 3D printed shoes, .
One of the most anticipating programs will continue to be the runway finale of UpNXT emerging designers accelerator as FashioNXT brings the industry experts to develop next generation of talents. The UpNXT allstars shows will bring attention to the success-stories of the program, the only such initiative in the region.
Bespoke bridal has always been the most intimate way consumers engage with independent designers. Two of the most exciting bridal couture designers from Portland and Seattle, Voututre and Sunny Kay will premier their new designs. But the most unique thing of 2017 FashioNXT program is, this is the first year there will be at least one men’s designer on every night’s lineup. Keep a close eye on the amazing accessories brands both on the runway, and at the Plaza exhibits.
Enjoy your experience of what’s next.
