Event Description:

Elizabeth Mollo Productions Presents Fade to Light: A Multidimensional Fashion Event, August 23rd at the Crystal Ballroom featuring New Collections from Carolyn Hart, Fräulein Couture, One Imaginary Girl, Portland Fashion Institute, Sonia Kasparian and Veil & Valor, with music and visuals by DJ Gregarious and Hair and Make-up by Beau Monde College of Hair Design.

Twice a year in February and August The Crystal Ballroom plays host to a dynamic fashion show where each designer is encouraged to think outside the box regarding their runway presentation. Fade to Light aims to not just be a fashion show, but to be an experience that leaves the viewer with a solid understanding of each designer and the collections being shown. The first Fade to Light occurred in 2012 and was conceived by Elizabeth Mollo, whom heads the show twice a year as the executive producer. Fade to Light routinely showcases the work of both established and emerging designers within the Portland fashion community, including Project Runway winners and alums and graduates from The Art Institute of Portland and Portland Fashion Institute. Tickets start at just $17 in advance!

A portion of the proceeds from this show will be donated to Cancer Curesaders, a Portland-based nonprofit raising funds and awareness for children’s cancer treatment. As Cancer Curesaders they are on a crusade advocating for pediatric cancer fighters, survivors, and their supporters. Not only do they fundraise for effective research and better treatments, they also aspire to serve as a local resource for information on medical advances, guidance for caregivers, and emotional support.
