What are your plans this upcoming Tuesday??? Going to Chicago Fashion Connects 2nd Editorial Fashion Video Premiere!! The video will be featuring avant-garde fashions by Hakeem Gayden, from his Blades of Petals collection. The video is about the designer's inspiration for the collection-his version of the future. The video just like a movie, is placed in a futuristic post-apocalyptic Chicago; burned with radiation and hit with rapid changes in weather it has become almost inhabitable with oxygen depleting from the air. It is during these grim times that people have embraced things that have been taken for granted; Fashion. That description just gave me chills!!
This video is a metaphor on the fashion industry in Chicago, and how it is still growing and emerging. The industry is still conservative, however young, up and coming designers slowly, and surely are changing this industry by introducing a new flare and changing the way the world views the Chicago fashion industry. This event is a MUST ATTEND!!!! Not only are you viewing a premiere of a video but also networking with other industry insiders. This event takes place Tuesday May 15th from 7-9pm at the Wishbone, on 3300 North Lincoln Ave, Chicago. Tickets are ONLY $15 which include admission to this grand event and a complimentary drink plus hors d'oeuvres. This event is co-produced by Benjamin Cottrell and hosted by Marco Foster. You can get tickets at HERE. See you all at the future!!!!
