This coming Sunday, March 10th, Autohaus on Edens is playing host to a design competition and fashion show featuring a slew of North Shore boutiques and fresh talent from Columbia College who are competing for a cash prize of $5000. Created as a platform to jumpstart the budding careers of fashion's young guns, the event is called Launch 2013: Driving Fashion Forward and is promising to be bigger and better than last year.
Tricoci's sister company, Red Door Spa is setting up manicure stations and St-Germain is bringing loads of champagne. There's a silent auction to benefit education nonprofit ORT America and boutiques like Cityblue Apparel and Denim's new outpost CB, Shelle Jewelers in Northbrook, Frances Heffernan and Skandal in Winnetka who will be having trunk shows.
