One of the off-kilter Fashion Focus shows this year; Cirque Du Cite, was all about the finest vintage in all of Chicagoland. Adventuresome vintage purveyor, Deliciously Vintage, joined forces with the team deluxe, Saint Cru Clothing Company to be styled by Lipstick Dinosaur. Cirque du Cite also debuted reFINDefined eveningwear by redesigner and stylist Redgi Woods.
Throughout The Cirque musical performances included RoyAl, Future Band and Michael Lee, ariel silks, burlesque dancers, and a circus ringleader. A portion of the proceeds went to Stand Up to Cancer, a new initiative created to accelerate groundbreaking cancer research that will get new therapies to patients.
