We can FINALLY venture outdoors without a jacket or fear that snow suddenly will freeze us all (it's Illinois, so it could STILL happen). Looking outside at the wonderful sunshine and flocks of geese sunbathing, I feel that us, Chicagoans should make the best of these nice, warm days. So how can we make the best of these days?? By of course participating in some fashion events (what did you expect me to say, I am a fashion blogger). I included some events that are sure to make you say "how chic" while wearing NO tights and rocking out those new sunglasses. So get those summery outfits ready and be ready to enjoy Chi fashion and superb weather (which we hardly get any since Mother Nature has a personal vendetta towards our state).
Wednesday May 22-Pretty as a SARAROSE Event
This Sararose Launch party is behind held at Stix and Roses (3854 W. Irving Park Rd) from 7-9pm. Don't expect the usual fashion show along with networking, this event has much more to it!! Sararose Krenger, the creator of Stix and Roses is now launching her personal styling company called Sararose. At this launch party it is all about styling. So expect champagne and light bites, entertainment and Personal Styling Demos for the Lady and Man done by Sararose herself. Tickets are ONLY $10 online here or $20 at the door (if there is enough space). So go, learn about styling by the styling goddess Sararose herself and maybe even shop the Stix and Roses line, it all sounds good.
Saturday June 1st-June 2nd: FASHION IN THE STREET, South Loop
Imagine having a HUGE runway show in the middle of a busy downtown Chicago street...sound unbelievable? Well, it isn't. That is what Fashion in the Street is all about. Taking place at the South Loop, Chicago, at the Intersection of Dearborn & Polk St at Dearborn Station this event is taking place all weekend long!! Both Saturday June 1st and Sunday June 2nd it is going on from 12 noon -10pm both days. This weekend long event is a Celebration of Chicago Fashion Designers and Boutiques; Celebrating what Chicago does best and showcased by the Green Curtain Events.
So what to expect??? Runway Shows will be featured throughout the event, with headline premier shows every evening. A 100 foot Runway will jet out of the Main Stage into our city landscape. All Runway Shows will be Produced by Benjamin Cottrell Designs. Also being featured are a 5 local bands and DJ's will perform daily throughout the fest! A VIP-Lounge will hold several hundred party goers with cabana-style seating designed by Ramsey J Prince Designs.
