After a rather lengthy pause, typical for this time of year, a fun- and music-loving blast of fresh air is hitting Portland's fashion scene: The Fade to Light fashion show taking place tomorrow night at the Crystal Ballroom. Having evolved out of what has been known as the Doomtown Fashion show, and later Sweet F.A., the co-founder of both those events, Elizabeth Mollo, is turning out a more sophisticated show featuring established brands like Ms. Wood and Chicago Harper, but sticking with her historical tie to music, she's also booked a performance by Brainstorm to follow the runway. You can read more about the show in this week's paper, but more importantly you have a chance GO, for FREE, if you follow these simple instructions:

1. Email me with the most excellent reason why you should win one of the two pairs of tickets we have to give away by 7 pm this evening.

2. Do not email me if you are unable to pick up the tickets at the Mercury office (115 SW Ash Ste 600) before 5 pm tomorrow.
