Next Fashion Chicago is the first full--length group show of Fashion Focus Chicago which begins on Monday, October 17th. This European style runway show will showcase some of the city's brightest designers and boutiques and include Sahar Dada, Mira Couture, Elda de la Rosa, Sujata Gazder, Hector-Javier MonArrez, Fraley Le, Gary Gonzales, Cleons, Bottega Contessa, Sofia, Cache and Furla.
I will emcee the show, which will celebrate the start of the week-long fashion activities organized by the Mayor's Fashion Council Chicago, along with NBC 5's Marcus Riley. The beauty, drama and European flair of the landmark Germania Place, 108 W. Germania Place just south of North Ave. and Clark St., will echo the grandeur of Next Fashion Chicago's premier event produced by Mandel Productions.
Following the show, guests can dance the night away during the after-party taking place in the venue's two ballrooms. General admission tickets are $30 and include a pre-show cocktail reception (6:30-7:30 pm), fashion show (8 pm) and access to the after-party with a cash bar all evening. VIP ticket holders ($65) will enjoy a private pre-show cocktail reception with a 1 1/2 hour premium open bar and passed hors d'oeuvres on the private balcony. VIP guests will also receive reserved premium show seating.
I hope to see you all on Monday, October 17th! For tickets (also available at the door the night of) and more info, please visit www.nextfashionchicago.com.
