THE HOT SPOT
New York and Paris aren’t the only cities to hold elaborate fashion shows. On Friday, May 4, 2012, ten of Chicago’s hottest designers will be debuting their Fall 2012 collection at the Art of Fashion 2012 runway show.
Starting at 5pm, guests can enter into a night of fashion, as the designer shopping event, FashionChicago, spans the second and third floors of the Museum of Broadcast Communications. For those fashionistas that want to experience a new world of shopping, this one-of-a-kind event features 30 of Chicago’s top accessories, apparel and jewelry designers. Once the exhaustion hits from shopping, you can enter the fourth floor starting at 6pm for the VIP Cocktail Reception. Grab a glass of wine, a cocktail from Voli vodkas, or a Peroni beer to wash down delicious sushi rolls by RA Sushi. Mingle with your girlfriends, show off your amazing new finds, and get ready for the runway show which starts at 7:30pm.
If you want to watch the show from the comfort of your assigned seat, purchase the VIP ticket ($95), which also includes the signature StyleChicago.com Goodie Bag, which I hear are the best goodie bags in the city (and valued at $250+). If standing is more your thing, the Standing ticket ($45) guarantees standing room at the event, but does not include a goodie bag. Some of the designers include Lara Miller, Eva Pazola and Barbara Bates. Both tickets provide complimentary admission to the FashionChicago shopping event, so if you didn’t get to shop ’til you drop before the show, make sure you give your Visa a workout afterwards, as the event continues until 10pm.
From the South Side to the North Side, Chicago’s fashion seekers with a passion for style will be attending this evening of fun, food and fashion.
