Welcome to Portfolio in Motion 2024! This year marks the 35th anniversary of our branded show, Portfolio in Motion, PIM! This fashion show consists of a wide range of SODA Majors from Interior Design, Graphic and Media Design, Fashion Merchandise & Marketing, and Fashion Design. 

 This year’s Portfolio in Motion fashion show will showcase an elegant environment for a dinner party, Soi·rée. With a vision of luxury, this is an exclusive event where celebration & complex creativity are presented.  

Soirée will feature an immersive experience within the interaction between the beauty in the garments and the ambiance. This is not a typical fashion show, but a social connection environment for all senses.  

So, indulge in a soiree where celebrating is a must! Dress in the aesthetics of avant-garde fabrication, where the silhouettes blur the line between art and couture. In the sense, that its whispered luxury is reserved. Let’s commit to the remembrance of the timeless night, Soirée.

2024 Designer of the Year: Peter Langner

Portfolio in Motion


While attending the prestigious Paris school of fashion design, L’Ecole de la Chambre Syndacale de la Couture, Peter Langner’s exceptional talent was quickly recognized. When Peter was still a student, the school’s director personally commissioned him to design a wedding gown for her daughter. This moment foretold Peter’s brilliance, technique and vision, as he would become a pioneer in the architectural fashion design and bridal world.

Before establishing the Peter Langner brand in 1991, Peter grew his talent and expertise working for several distinguished design houses: Christian Dior, Emanuel Ungaro, Guy LaRoche and Christian Lacroix. In 2015, the Peter Langner atelier moved from Rome to Milan, Italy, where Peter has since worked.

Today, the Peter Langner brand has expanded in all directions with collections in bridal, eveningwear, and home. Peter is frequently recognized for his innovative style, appealing to discerning, fashion- forward customers. His gowns defy the ordinary, integrating elegant, modern, and sophisticated fashion together. Always striving for new horizons, Peter prioritizes sustainability in the making of his gowns by recycling workroom scraps into elegant and intricately detailed designs and accents. Each gown created in the atelier is handmade with meticulous detail and care, representing Peter’s patience, love, and devotion to his work.

Sold in over 20 international countries, Peter is a leader in the movement of architectural bridal fashion. He has received global recognition for his talent, evidenced by his status as a two-time winner at the Elle International Bridal Awards, receiving placements for the Lifetime Achievement Award and Best Bridal Gown Award in 2021 and 2019.
