October 6th will see the 85th annual fashion show presented by the Women’s Board of Rush University, but even though the event has been going on for 8 decades, it definitely shows no signs of old age. In fact, this year’s show “LAYERS” presents a decidedly modern take on fashion. A “who’s who” of volunteer models will walk down the runway wearing designs from some of the best names in fashion including: Frances Heffernan, The Lake Forest Shop, Loro Piana, Luca Luca, Neapolitan, p.45, Penny’s From Heaven, Ralph Lauren, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tory Burch and Valentino.
There is also an incredible live auction! So far great items have been announced like a private dinner with famed chef Art Smith and a Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week package.
With all this plus a great show space at the Palmer House in downtown Chicago and tons of tasty cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, the Women’s Board Fashion Show is aiming to combine the future of fashion with the rich history of the show itself.
