FASHION WIRE PRESS PARTNERS WITH PORTLAND FASHION WEEK
as reported by sarah freiseis
Fashion Daily Mag is happy to share that our friends at Fashion Wire Press will be the official 'house' photographer for Portland Fashion Week (October 7-11, 2009). FWP is sure to bring this event to the 'next level' with an exciting visual journey that we've come to know and respect from them.
Fashion Wire Press CEO, Ed Kavishe, believes, "Talented and innovative designers exist in all corners of the world. I have been following the surge of Portland Fashion Week with keen interest from New York -- the high quality of set-production and national and international designers... We decided to extend our already long runway shooting season past Paris fashion week, by adding Portland because we believe in what FWP is doing for the industry and love to capture and spread the gospel on it."
Well then, we're always supporting young + new talent, and what better way then tapping into a city that's getting some heavy buzz. Portland Fashion week has been gaining speed steadily since it's launch in 2003. Our very own Brigitte Segura had this to say, "besides it's very green there, 'eco' is a no longer a minor league player and can hold it's own as a major market."
We're excited to see how things develop. Brava, Fashion Wire Press... see you next month at the New York shows!
