. . . I'm assuming that handbags 'n' more mogul Kate Spade will not personally be in attendance at the "Breath of Portland" fashion show coming up on June 12, but that her shop location at Pioneer Place will be handling her third of the runway duties. Alongside will be the work of two excellent locals, Janeane Marie and Dawn Sharp, the Hugs (no that's not a new line, it's a band), and Portland dance company Lyrik. It's being held at Sandbox Studio (7-11 pm), and benefits Global Student Outreach, and your $20 ticket includes apps and bevvies, which is a superbly great deal. Plus there will be a silent auction of items by donors including another MOD favorite, R.A.W.
