Party! Open House & Orientation

Party! Open House & Orientation

Food. Fun. Fashion. Come explore and express yourself.

Learn more about Portland’s premier fashion institute, offering classes in everything from sewing to patternmaking. We help students find their dream jobs in the fashion industry. Our instructors all work in the apparel field currently and can offer you information regarding the industry right now instead of out of date information.

From 10 am to noon there will be demonstrations, where you can get your PFI passport stamped to enter to win a free sewing machine or fabric shopping spree. At noon, we’ll be chatting about how to get started in fashion, and at 1 pm new student orientation will begin.

Whether you’re looking to take a class just for fun, start your own clothing line, open a boutique, or work for a global fashion brand, PFI can help you gain the skills you need. If you go for a career, PFI can help with job placement. Plus, you’ll have a great time, make friends, and learn more about yourself in the process.

Come hear what we have to offer for you at our open house and orientation, and find out what you can get out of classes at Portland Fashion Institute.
