Producers of The Energy Trust Better Living Home, Garden & Lifestyle Show (Better Living Show) are working with Portland Fashion Week Productions to host an eco-fashion panel discussion and installation fashion show at the largest sustainable lifestyle show in the Northwest.

On Saturday, March 29, members of the global eco-fashion community will gather at the Portland Expo Center to discuss environmentally responsible design and manufacturing processes. Attendees of the Better Living Show, which is free to the public, are encouraged to attend the event to learn how Portland is leading the international fashion community in its quest to go green.

Portland Fashion Week has been internationally recognized as the first eco-sustainable production of a fashion week in the world,” said Prasenjit Tito Chowdhry, principal of PFW Productions LLC and executive producer of Portland Fashion Week. “We are bringing this event to the Better Living Show to educate the broader community on eco-fashion.”

Both will discuss their roles in influencing the global fashion community to adopt sustainable design and manufacturing processes.

• Leslie Hoffman, the executive director of Earth Pledge, recently shook up the fashion world with her buzz-worthy FutureFashion runway show, which debuted during New York Fashion Week in February 2008.
