Modified Style Portland — Our Mission
Modified Style Portland is a 501(c)3 non-profit, community enhancement organization that supports and encourages the growth of Portland’s socially progressive identity in the form of fun, accessible, sustainable fashion. Our goal is to help minimize the massive carbon footprint of the fashion industry through fostering creativity, confidence and self-expression within the Portland community.
How We Do It
MSP promotes sustainable fashion awareness through a variety of avenues leading up to our annual fundraising fashion show. Donated fabric is used by designers of all skill levels and ages to create innovative fashions, which are then auctioned off to benefit local charities. This event sparks innovation, originality, resourcefulness, and confidence – the essence of Portland culture!
