VARYFORM Shows Look in RefuSHE Fashion Challenge X: A Decade of Impact Runway Show

Over 250 guests attended a one-of-a-kind runway show featuring looks created with fabric made in RefuSHE's social enterprise, a program that fosters leadership and business skills through the design and production of hand-dyed fabrics and scarves. Nine Chicago designers had full creative license to create a look with the five yards of fabric they received from RefuSHE's Spring/Summer 2018 collection. A panel of four Chicagoland fashion experts evaluated each runway look and selected Rakan Shams-Aldeen as the winner of this unique competition. ABC7 Chicago's Tanja Babich emceed the night and the runway show was directed by Chicago fashion icon, Nena Ivon. Guests enjoyed food and desserts catered by Presenting Sponsor, Hogsalt Hospitality. All proceeds from the evening benefitted RefuSHE in their mission to empower refugee girls.
