Lake Michigan is one of Chicago's all-time favorite local spots, but preserving these waters is vital both to the beauty of our city and protecting one of the seven Great Lakes— the world's largest surface freshwater resource.
That's why in the name of Earth Month and a great cause, sun-protective clothing line Mott 50 and Gordon Salon on Clark are partnering for a fashion show. Just like the $20 blow dry event they held last week, the event benefits the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
The Earth Month Fashion Show will be held next Saturday, April 27 at 8PM at the salon featuring Mott 50's S/S '13 line. Mott 50's line of swim and surf, activewear, hats and accessories are easy-to-wear offering breathable sun protection in lightweight fabrics boasting a 50 UPF, compared to a 5 UPF with just a regular t-shirt.
