Hitting the Runway at Oregon State University

The University Runway

On Friday May 25th, the OSU design students will put on their eighth annual runway show.  Student collections for Spring will be shown to peers, faculty and family, as well as representatives from Oregon apparel companies.

Last year, the star of the show was Amanda Grisham, who was also selected as one of Portland Monthly’s  “Fifty Most Influential Portlanders.”

The Collection

Amanda’s collection featured Pendleton fabrics from Pendleton’s Woolen Mill Store. She went on to win Portland Fashion Week’s Catapult: Emerging Designers Competition.

On Friday night, all eyes will be watching to see who Oregon’s next rising star might be. Enjoy this look at Amanda’s work from 2011. We are probably just as proud of it as she is.
