Friday night fashionistas, Bears' football stars, and devoted fans gathered at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Chicago to watch the newly-famous Borris Powell debut his Fall/Winter line, "C Me In Dior." Powell also invited two other lines to show before him so the crowd got a great range of up-and-coming fashion lines.

Evlove Intimates took to the runway first. The Chicago lingerie brand showed the crowed just a few examples of the pretty little things you can customize on their site.

Ariel Simone took us through her newest collection with fun shapes perfect for every woman.


Then it was Borris Powell's turn to wow us….




Mr. Powell himself introduced the finale collection, his own. With beautiful shapes and styles to be desired by all, his line was an amazing preview of what to expect from him. He concluded the show by sending out evening wear concluded by the "Black Swan" dress that thrust him into stardom. 

Borris Powell told Second City Style that his drew his inspiration from the original shapes that Dior used to change the history of fashion. He largely attributes his passion for fashion from the fashion house. Powell's line was all about lines and the thought behind each garment, trying to inspire the woman wearing it. 

Be on the lookout for Borris on your television! A show is in the works revolving around what's sure to be a huge step into the fashion world.
