Portland, April 25th. Leanne Marshall, (far right) former Portlander and 2008 winner of Project Runway Season 5, showcased her bridal line at a runway show at the Portland Art Museum. Marshall also presented Karina Reed, student designer from the Art Institute of Portland and winner of AniA’s gown design contest, with a $1,000 scholarship from the bridal boutique. Sharice Shepherd, Karina Reed, Morgan Lindberg, and Project Runway Winner Leanne Marshall enjoyed the event. Reed’s winning gown, The Ross Island Bridge, was a highlight of the show. AniA helped Reed by providing the fabrics and pairing her with local designer Jennifer Phillips, owner of “Nicole Couture.”
