Candid Candace Takes you to the NEXT Fashion Chicago Show on!

The week was filled with fashionable fun starting with the NEXT Fashion Chicago Show at Germania Place last week (video coverage follows)!  I was thrilled to co-emcee along with NBC’s Marcus Riley.   Produced by Rose Mandel, of Mandel Productions, the show included collections from local designers  Elda de la Rosa, Fraley Le, Gary Gonzalez, Sahar Dada, Cleon, Hector-Javier MonArrez, Sujata Gazder and Mira Couture.  Participating boutiques included Bottega Contessa, Cache, Sofia and Furla.  Entertainment featured an electric violin performance by Katarina Visnevska.

Fashion Focus Week continued with exciting shows in the tents in Millennium Park as well as over 30 other events, shows, trunk shows and parties around town!

Chicago….the second city?  I think NOT!

Congrats to all who participated, especially the fabulous Host Committee, Marco Foster and Benjamin Cottrell,  and NOW enjoy the show!
