Floral prints are big right now, but tonight's Fleurotica event takes it to the next level. At 7pm, the Museum of Contemporary Art transforms into a haute couture botanical garden. Models will take to the stage for a runway show dressed in garments made entirely out of flowers.
If you're one of the people who was lucky enough to snag tickets before sales closed, expect to enjoy aphrosdisiac-inspired cocktails, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, who is an honorary chair of the event. Proceeds from the evening will, as always, benefit the Garfield Park Conservatory.
