The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) hosted its 76th annual fashion show, The Walk 2010, presented for the first time in the Renzo-Piano designed Griffin Court of the Art Institute's Modern Wing. This marked the return of SAIC's show to the Art Institute for the first time in 15 years. The Walk began with a pre-show cocktail and hors d'oeuvres reception and then emcees Christian Farr (NBC 5) and Karen Jordan (ABC 7) kicked off the evening and introduced Gary Graham, winner of the 2010 Legend of Fashion Award.
Linda Johnson Rice presented a video tribute of her mom, Eunice W. Johnson and also presented senior student designer, Luis Rodriguez, with the Eunice W. Johnson Fellowship award which included a check for $25,000. Then the spectacular runway show began featuring cutting-edge garments by the next generation of up-and-coming designers. This years chairs were Marilyn Fields and Greg Cameron and the co-chairs were Stephanie Sick, Donna LaPietra and Bis Williams Mau. A buffet dinner was served in Terzo Piano overlooking the breathtaking skyline. (There were 3 shows: one at 2 PM, The Walk at 7 PM and the Nightwalk at 10PM.)
