Celeb-filled kick-off for the ever-popular Red Dress Party just announced.
Red Threads for Model Citizens Fashion Show 2009, takes place on Thursday, April 16th at 7 p.m. at the Jupiter Hotel. The event will help usher in this year's Red Dress Party, held later in May.
“The excitement and support for this new event is amazing,” said Stephen Cassell, Director of Sales at the Jupiter Hotel, who is co-chair alongside Kate Sokoloff, founder of Live Wire Radio. “People from all corners of Portland’s art, fashion and political community are coming out to support this new event."
Those confirmed to walk their best Red Dress stuff inside The Jupiter's Dream Tent so far are David Bragdon, Poison Waters, Marc Acito, Tara Dublin, Daria and Dallas Eliuk, Courtney Hameister, Lisa Schroeder, Katrina and Ted Wheeler, Amy Stephens and, yours truly, Byron Beck.
Should be fun and fueled with plenty of liquid courage. Ticket info to follow.
Speaking of cocktails, this Thursday The Jupiter hosts an Iron Bartender competition.
Here are the details:
See local bartenders throw down against each other to support Children's Relief Nursery. Four of Portland's top mixologists will battle to win the favor of local cocktail enthusiasts. You get to judge for yourself.
