The only fashion show dedicated to giving our city's independent designers the spotlight they deserve to show off their seasonal collections is StyleChicago's The Art of Fashion. This is StyleChicago's annual show featuring Fall 2013 collections from 10 designers spanning Eva Pazola who just celebrated 25 years, drama seeker Hector-Javier MonArrez, favorite Lara Miller among others. It's one night of all-things local fashion complete with a VIP cocktail reception and an after party.
This year's show happens this coming Friday, April 19 at the Museum of Broadcast Communications on State Street. As of this afternoon rows 1, 2, 6, 7 and standing room are sold out. Remaining tickets are for rows 3-5 priced at $95. Each year in the past the show has completely sold out so if you plan on seeing the show, right now would be the time to scoop your seat.
