Last night at the Public Hotel the chicago-based line Atelier Azza celebrated their one year birthday, hosted by Glossed & Found and Monika Dixon. With proceeds from the evening benefiting the Chicago Children's Choir, dozens of the line's clients and supporters turned out to be dazzled by the creations from AZZA's Spring / Summer '13 line.
Halfway through the evening, the alumni group of the Chicago Children's Choir, led by Artistic Director Josephine Lee, belted the tunes and processed through the jam packed library bar with large sparklers flaming everywhere and an astonishing--repeat, astonishing four layer tiered cake featuring motifs from AZZA's line which was designed by Sugar Hills Bakery.
