Portland, February 5th, 2015. “I Have a Dream” Oregon and Amy Vining Photography presented a one-of-a-kind fashion show for teens and fashionistas of all ages. Dreamers Cheyanna, Evelyn, Abdi, Vanesia, and Vanessa showed off their looks by Gala Gowns and Myriam Marcela after the show. 12 high school Dreamer student models from schools throughout North and NE Portland and Reynolds High School walked the catwalk in local designs. More than 160 guests raised nearly $2,000 for “I Have a Dream” Oregon to empower students from low-income communities to succeed in school, college and career.
