Mission Statement: “Modified Style Portland supports local nonprofits, through art, fashion and reuse. We welcome participants of all skills levels to inspire and create social change.”
Not your typical fashion show — Modified Style Portland is a fashion show fundraiser with a few ambitious goals.
-We want to inspire people to get creative, to design, to be inspired.
-We want to showcase sustainability and show support for local non-profits.
-By utilizing found and donated scrap fabric in our fashion show, we want challenge the fashion status quo and show how rewarding and fun it is to be environmentally responsible.
We believe that giving back to our community opens up a world of possibilities and positive change, leading to greater connection, compassion and the fulfilling of personal, local and global potential.
Each year we pick three local non-profits to support and the money we make at our Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser (scheduled this year, 2013, for late September) is given to these organizations. So far, we’ve raised over $18,000 for local non-profits.
This year our Benefactors will be:
Sisters Of The Road – Feeding The Hungry
The Pixie Project – Animal Rescue and Adoption
Bark – Mt.Hood Preservation and Protection
