Set against the backdrop of one the most spectacular venues in Chicago-the beautiful Peggy Notebaert Museum in Lincoln Park-Eric Hurlburt and Funky Couture Entertainment staged an awesome event featuring the summer/fall preview collections from fashion house Custo-Barcelona.
We have to give much Kudos to Eric for going up against Macy's Glamorama-taking place in the crowded Loop. He executed his vision rather flawlessly and for all those in attendance they surely would agree. For the select invitees-we indulged in a fantastic experience.
Hosted by Nelly Carreno of NBC TV and MEGA Radio-we were treated to a Champagne reception-tastings from Chicago's top chefs including Angelina's Restaurant, Opart Thai Restaurant, Sapori Tratioria, and the California Pizza Kitchen. We enjoyed summer cocktails from Skyy Vodka, El Milagro Tequila, Hendricks Gin and Goslings Black Rum from Bermuda.
All of this made for an fantastic cocktail of merriment capped off by an credible fashion show from our friends in Spain-Custo Barcelona.
I would bet no one would have rather been in any other place than the Notebaert Museum-it was funky, couture and so much fun!
