Knock Out: A Plus Size Pop- Up and Fashion Show will return for its second year and feature designers and vendors from five states that make and sell clothing specifically for plus- size women and men. The show is produced by Copper Union designer Claire Doody, who for just the few years she’s been part of the Portland fashion scene has really made a mark. “It is really important to me to bring people together in our great community with brands they can normally only shop online,” she said, “It is also creating a safe space for discussion about body politics in the role that modern fashion plays in it.” Other designers include Allihalla, Bombsheller, Chubby Cartwheels, Hubris, Proud Mary, and Re/ Dress. Vendors include Make Good Choices, Copperhive Vintage, TomboyX, Fat Fancy, Archive Six, and Jes Baker. Rounding out the event will be guest speaker Anna OBrien, a plus- size Instagram influencer and fashion blogger.
