Mark your calendars Chicago!
Thursday, October 8:
The Chicago Fashion Incubator Designer Showcase, presented by Virgin Hotels, will include a runway show featuring the work of 10 designers who are either currently in the incubator at Macy's State Street or are alumni of it. The showcase starts at 5 p.m. at Virgin Hotels Chicago, The Commons Club, 203 N. Wabash Ave. Admission is free, but tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserve by emailing VHCFashionShow@skoogproductions.com.
I am very excited to be a part of this showcase, even as I am still developing my collection. I am producing two looks: One that fits a "British Music" theme, as a tribute to the roots of the Virgin brand, and another look to give a glimpse into my collection.
