Acting as the bookend to 2017 are the Portland Fashion and Style Awards. On its 6th year, this event, “Strives to recognize exceptional local talent and showcase Portland’s unique style with a commitment to bring together the city's creative culture to build an event of sustainability, passion, and collaboration.” Among the categories are Best Women’s Wear Designer, Best Men’s Wear Designer, Best Boutique, and Best Fashion Publication, which Portland Mercury is nominated for! (Full disclosure, I am on the judging panel, and no I do not get to vote for myself. They literally kicked me out of the room when it was time to vote for the categories I was in.)
