The Art institute of Portland invites everyone to the Light on White Gallery Exhibit that will showcase experimental work by fashion design students. Designers were challenged to create experimental white paper gowns inspired by the theme of Projections, anticipating the theme of this year’s fashion show. Lighting effects will turn the gowns into dramatic images of fashion imagination. The Light on White Gallery Exhibit opening kicks off a month of fashion events leading up to the annual fashion show scheduled for August 24, 2017, at the Crystal Ballroom.

The Light on White Gallery Exhibit will be on display at The Art Institute until the end of the month of August, providing a preview of the exciting looks being created for Projections: A Fashion Experience on August 24 at the Crystal Ballroom. For more information, visit
