The second round of the Portland Fashion Style Awards take place tomorrow. You remember that last year's debut was something of a farce, but this year's sees new ownership, a more on-point judging panel, and some improved relevance among the finalists. It's not perfect, but it appears to be on the right track.

You can read more about the changes in the process, and see the list of finalists in this week's Sold Out column, and there's also some new information about the mini fashion shows that will help space out the evening.


In the capable hands of fashion show producer and MOD writer Elizabeth Mollo are two mini fashion shows. The first, says Mollo, features "clothing provided by Jet Boutique and Sophie Chang, hats provided by Goorin Bros., and shoes provided by Solestruck. Fashion show looks styled by Alicia Wood, and hair and make-up provided by Venus Allure Salon and Spa."
