Pink Carpet Project: Portland & Seattle Fashion Stand with Planned Parenthood

Event proceeds will go to benefit Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette.
On February 1st, we heard the news that Susan G. Komen was going to cut funding to Planned Parenthood's preventative clinical breast exams to uninsured women. Although they have reversed their decision, the Seattle fashion community was inspired to come together to show our support to Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest. Four weeks later with 14 designers, 60 models, 30 hairstylists & makeup artists, 40 volunteers, 10 performers, 45 sponsors and 200 attendees, Seattle came together to stand with Planned Parenthood. Now, we're bringing the Pink Carpet Project to Portland
