It is that time of the year, the third annual FashioNXT 2015 is just around the corner.

Like a classic New York Fashion Week show at Bryant Park, a tent will rise for FashioNXT OCT 7-10at Portland’s Pearl District. FashioNXT is the City’s premiere fashion forward show, proclaimed by Mayor Charlie Hales as Portland’s Official Fashion Week.

FashioNXT is a fashion week in the most contemporary sense showcasing “what’s next in fashion”.  At FashioNXT, extraordinary designers premier their next season’s collections on the runway. What’s next in fashion today is wearable technology and the innovative ways technology connects people to fashion. FashioNXT presents an innovative fashion experience here in Portland and the world takes notice.

Five Project Runway winners and Allstars including Portland’s own Michelle Lesniak and Seth Aaron, and Mondo Guerra and Viktor Luna will draw the eyes of the industry on this runway.  Designers from all over the North America — from Montreal, Seattle, Los Angeles and New York will join the most exciting designers from Portland. The international caliber production of FashioNXT has drawn designers from Colombia, Philippines and China.

FashioNXT was the first major runway show where a designer engaged the world with smart eyewear. On Oct 8, FashioNXT will reveal how the lines between fashion and technology have become blurred revealing the winner of its Wearable Technology Fashion Competition, presented by Digital Trends. The competition will be judged by a “Who’s Who” panel including design director of Nike, Venture Lead of Intel, Google’s Wearable Creative Director, Manufacture NY’s Wearable lead and more.
