Wardrobe items will be provided on location by the Chico Discovery Shop. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we're asking all models and photographers to visit the @discoveryshopchico prior to October 13 to purchase pink items from their curated collection just for Portrait Slam participants!

*Our theme is Golden Era of Travel: come dolled up or decked out for a 1950's era travel brochure, with close of WW2, heyday of Pan Am Airlines vibes. Also think Mad Men or Catch Me If You Can. In support of Breast Cancer awareness month, prioritize pink, black, and white in your choices! Prop ideas include: vintage luggage, silk scarves, victory curls, aviators, bomber jackets, gloves, fur, navy whites, etc. Both models & photographers: do your best to express your individual style through this theme while wearing mostly pink, white, or black!

*The Chico Discovery Shop is highlighting Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by collecting on-theme pink items in the shop. Help the American Cancer Society buy purchasing at least one pink item from the Chico Discovery Shop prior to the slam - 100% of proceeds go to towards research for a cure and support for those struggling with a cancer diagnosis!

Challenge yourself to get wild, creative & DIY with the pink Golden Era of Travel theme! Photographers: this means you, too!
