Activism has always been a part of the Fashion community in Chicago which is why we hope you'll check out a benefit next week for a local organization which has grown nationally in its 117 year history. One Hope United whose mission is Protecting Children, Strengthening Families is celebrating their history next Saturday April 28th, with its inaugural "Eras of Hope" event at Mercedes-Benz Chicago. In classic time warp style, fashion presentations and music will change hourly, starting with the 1920s and moving through the eras. Hosts include the lovely Delrice and Larry from House of Trends as well as Benjamin Cottrell, Sarah Vargo and Marco Foster. [Racked Inbox]
