What’s Next in Chicago Fashion September 12, 2012 Have some Fashion envy seeing your New York friends’ pictures of Fashion Week right now? Don’t fret: Chicago will have a week of their own next month! It’s called Fashion Focus Chicago and will show off some of Chicago’s own design talent. Here’s a look at one of the big events of the week, Next Fashion Chicago. So here’s the deal: it’s a fashion show, party and after party all in one. And jam packed with some Chicagolebrities. Marco Foster will host the red carpet… he hosted the official Fashion’s Night Out after party at The Underground Chicago last week… which by the way was a raving success!! Check out the recap and come out tomorrow night for the 2nd installment of the Style Series: Inspired Fashion. Plus, NBC 5 Chicago’s, Marcus Riley and Chicago Tribune columnist & blogger, Candace Jordan will MC the main event. And here’s a list of a few designers rockin’ the runway: Akira Cory Tan Mark Roscoe Design Studio Alade Sahar Dada Tickets for the event range from $20-$85. If you shell out the money for VIP, it includes complimentary cocktails, exclusive reception with designers and media and some swag. A portion of the proceeds also go to PAWS Chicago. Fashion plus helping puppies? Yes please! Now I’m sure you’re picking out your outfit right now, but sorry, you’ll have to wait a month. Next Fashion Chicago is on October 16th and starts at 6:30pm at the Germania Place. –Grace Sweeney 5 Responses aChicagoThing September 12, 2012 Annoyed reading all about NYFW?
