NW College Rocked the Runways!

Our students rocked out to benefit Foster-Closet Inc.




Northwest College students worked on the hair and makeup for the models at Rock the Runways (RTR) in association with Semper Fashion. Our students had a blast and did an amazing job!

The event featured 10 of Portland's best indie designers and 20 top models who walked the runway in the hippest, coolest, loudest and most stylish fashions of the summer.

All proceeds from the show went to support Foster Closet Inc. Foster Closet is a non-profit organization that supplies clothing and other items free of charge to children in foster care.

We are very proud of our students who volunteered their talents for a wonderful cause.
