    would love to look at swanky clothes please!

  2. Melissa Kaylene April 22, 2014 at 2:54 pm #

    I would love to attend! I’ve actually never been before and it’s been on my bucket list for quite some time now! If I win I’ll take my daughter with me and we can have a great mother/daughter date and an awesome experience!


  3. Rachel April 22, 2014 at 4:10 pm #

    I’d love to attend so I can have an excuse to dress up and get a look at the local fashion scene. Any excuse for a girls’ night out!

  4. Sarah April 22, 2014 at 10:30 pm #

    Love fashion! This would be so fun and inspiring. Would love to go!

  5. Michael E Ashland April 22, 2014 at 11:34 pm #

    Any fashion event in Portland without me would be a tragedy. Let’s send someone who can rock a kilt without bowing to tartans or scotts. If I’m at Fashion Week, I’m going commando in a manly kilt. If that’s not reason enough, there’s no god.

    Hello! My name is Itzel and this is my first year in the Portland area.

    I don’t go to a lot of things since I’m pretty busy just paying the bills, but I learned about this and it caught my eye!

    Typically my mom and I struggle to find things to do on the weekends, especially since a lot of things to do are pretty expensive, but since that’s pretty much the only time we spend together we try to do fun stuff anyways.

    I would really love to win these tickets :) Itd give us a chance to spend some quality time together without spending money! At any rate, thank you for reading :)

    Your friend,

    Me, my Fiance and her aunt are in town for the week scoping out places to live and work. What’s the best way to fall in love with a city? Do everything! Squeezing a fashion show in between our Rose Gardens, Forest Park and Cannon Beach is not only do-able, but damn near essential.

  8. Mathew April 24, 2014 at 2:42 pm #

    I can’t afford to go to this otherwise but I love fashion. Help me out?

  9. Brianna April 24, 2014 at 2:46 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets to this. I’ve never really jumped into the Portland Fashion scene, but it’d be really cool to see all the local designers. The Pop Up Shops look cool!!

  12. Matt April 24, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

    I am a photographer that is pushing more and more into fashion. I just had an excellent meeting with a producer and she said I should “win” us tickets so we could go together. Then I saw this. It’s meant to be.

  13. J April 24, 2014 at 3:03 pm #

    Sounds like a fabulous evening!

  14. Traci April 24, 2014 at 3:07 pm #

  28. Claire April 25, 2014 at 9:12 am #

    My boyfriend and I used to watch Project Runway together, but haven’t seen a season in a while. This would get us back in our Tim Gunn state of mind!

    • Denise Martin April 25, 2014 at 9:15 am #

      I adore Project Runway. I didn’t think I cared about fashion before PR came along but I am hooked now. I am not beneath begging either. Please! I want to go to fashion week and it just isn’t in the budget at present! Faith Creates!…denise

  31. Lisa April 25, 2014 at 9:33 am #

    I can’t think of a better way to support our upcoming and established talented fashion designers. Besides, I will make it my duty to report back to Eddie and Patsy letting them know that Portland has artistry that can rival that of LaCroix!

  32. Doug April 25, 2014 at 10:33 am #

    Hook me up! I have a 15 year old daughter that’s an aspiring fashionista. She can look at clothes. I can look at models. Win-win.

  33. Bob April 25, 2014 at 10:40 am #

    I really need some fashion ideas!

  34. Harvey April 25, 2014 at 11:06 am #

    I would love to take my girlfriend to this – she has an amazing fashion sense and needs some more inspiration!

  35. Emily April 25, 2014 at 1:29 pm #

    I need a reason to change out of my fleece pants. This might be the only place in portland I could be shamed out of wearing my fleece pants.

  36. Eunice April 25, 2014 at 1:38 pm #

    I would love to go because I am a freelance hair stylist and I love attending Portland Fashion Week for inspiration! I love all of the booths and supporting local artists! We are so lucky in Portland because there is so much creativity and talent all around us and I want to be a part of it!

  41. Willow Finney April 28, 2014 at 9:24 am #

    I used to work for Dosha and knowing they will be having a part in the production means it’s going to be great! I would love to support local artists and shop at the booths.
