This Saturday is Portland Sewing's Fashion Forward graduate show, featuring the graduates of an intensive program that goes beyond apparel construction techniques to guide students into thinking about how to hone their focus and market themselves. I always love a good student show, but this one tends to produce designers and collections that are more fully formed than in undergraduate shows like those produced by the Art Institute. In anticipation of this weekend's debuts we spoke to some of the students to get a sense of what to expect.

Next up: Stephanie Hutton, who attendees of the most recent Fade to Light got a glimpse of through her work with Portland Sewing owner Sharon Blair's multifaceted SKPDX line. Head over to MOD to find out more.
