Modified Style

Modified Style Portland raises awareness of local non-profit organizations by featuring unique and wearable fashion created using sustainable practices by participants of all skill levels.

Fashion Friday! A selection of the placing designs from last year’s Modified Style Portland fashion event. There’s still time to sign up and design for this year’s Modified Style Portland fashion show on October 16th! Head over to for more details and to sign up! 

We’re opening up registration for established and aspiring designers to participate in MSP’s sixth annual fundraiser fashion show by using found, donated and recycled fabrics to create wearable art. Not your typical fashion show, MSP highlights creativity, sustainability and philanthropy.  Designers are inspired to create innovative yet wearable fashions using recycled and donated fabric provided by MSP.  Garments are auctioned off following the show to benefit local charities. Past participants have ranged from professional designers to first-time sewers in the newly established youth category. The fashion show will be held on October 16th at the Ambridge Ballroom. Interested designers should contact Lizz Basinger at For more details please visit 
Hey #pdx people! Today our clothing swap starts at 3pm at Bridgeport Brewpub Heritage Room. Come on by!

We were so excited to support one of our extremely talented board members, Lizz Basinger during Portland Fashion Week last month. Her Spring / Summer 2014 Collection is available for purchase online now.
