SolarWorld and Portland Fashion Week will team up for showcasing a green fashion cause. In October, models in the 2010 Portland Fashion Week are likely to walk on a runway fitted with the high-performance solar panels of SolarWorld, highlighting sustainable development of the energy and fashion industries.

Portland Fashion Week, in its seventh annual showcase during October 6-10 of 2010, will highlight the solar runway, in the run-up towards the launch of the spring-summer 2011 design collections of various well-known designers. SolarWorld, sponsoring the event, will be celebrating the completion of its Hillsboro module assembly factory along with production of the black monocrystalline photovoltaic modules. The company is also expanding all its production phases in areas such as module assembly, wafer cutting, crystal growing and cell conversion.

Portland Fashion Week executive producer Prasenjit Tito Chowdhury mentioned that the teaming up of the most experienced and the largest solar manufacturer with Portland Fashion Week indicates the importance of sustainability. He also added that sustainable fashion, like renewable energy, represents a lifestyle choice. SolarWorld California President Kevin Kilkelly said that the company shares the same commitment towards sustainable lifestyle as Portland Fashion Week.
