Some of Portland’s most familiar faces comprise the advisory board and judges at the Portland Fashion and Style Awards. In a two-part fashion show, nominees in the categories of hair styling, wardrobe planning, and modeling strut their stuff for a panel that includes Portland Picks founder Kathi O’Neil, DJ and radio host Shel Bailey, and Emmy-winning costume designer Amanda Needham, whose work has been seen on Portlandia. Meanwhile, Fox 12 news reporter Chloe Houser and local comedian Francine Raften split sides and hosting duties. Nominations are still open to the public, in categories such as Best Stylist, Best Salon, Best Designer, Best Style Writer, and Longest Scarf. An after party follows at The Benson Hotel.
The Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
Built in the Italian Rococo Revival style by Chicago firm Rapp and Rapp in the late 1920s, The Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall is impossible to miss. Its brilliant “Portland” marquee towers 65 feet in the air. The building’s interior stats are similarly impressive: it takes 2,776 humans or 1,928 gorillas to fill the resplendent concert hall.
