MODELS can indicate their availability for any given dates and be assigned to shows accordingly. While it is welcome, THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT FOR PFW MODELS TO BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL PORTLAND FASHION WEEK SHOW DATES.
Models should be flexible about making themselves available for individual fittings if necessary, particularly for out of town designers who might not arrive in Portland in time for the group fitting session on October 3rd. PFW’s house photography sponsor for 2010 is New York’s world-renown Fashion Wire Press who distributes world-class runway images to editors and publications around the globe.
Portland Fashion Week appreciates the hard work and dedication of its models, and the modest compensation structure of this community project, staffed and organized by volunteers, is enhanced by both local, national, and international placement and exposure un-equaled in North American fashion weeks outside of New York City.
