Blue Wrap Project 2014
Show begins at 7pm

Partners for World Health hosts an annual fashion show called the Blue Wrap Project. This is not your average runway event but the designs promise to delight and inspire as much as the latest line of couture fashion.

The annual Blue Wrap Project features wearable art fashion designs from talented people in the greater Portland area. The sky is the limit for these designers with one stipulation - every piece of fashion featured in this runway event is created using the discarded medical supply called Blue Wrap.
