Last Thursday night, Second City Style's managing editor, Carol Calacci, was the toast of the town as a fabulous honoree of The Diva Series. Hosted by Sarah Vargo of Maven, The Aparecio Foundation, Today's Chicago Woman and Jbar, the monthly event celebrates influential and successful women in Business, PR, Media, Fashion, Fitness, Beauty and Lifestyle. This month's fete celebrated the game changers, trend setters and style casters we follow in Chicago's fashion community.
As a longtime presence in the fashion community as a designer, writer and all out fiercely stylish fox, Carol was a natural choice for the roster. She joined such noteworthy names as Candace Jordan – model/actress, and author of CandidCandace.com, Ashley Zygmunt – alum of the Chicago Fashion Incubator and owner and designer of Zamrie, Nicki Brashear – Proprietor of Fashionista Chicago, Nikia Jefferson – Creator of ChiTownFashionista.com and Julie Blake – Fashion Consultant at Mark Shale and Founder of Julie Blake Enterprises, among others
Maria Noll, Senior Mgr/Sequin brand Ambassador (Diva) JBar Owner and Sequin Owner Frances Renk (Diva)
The mood at the party was was festive, the champagne was flowing and friendly familiar faces were everywhere. Second City Style was represented by both blog writers and columnists, all of whom came out to cheer on Carol and support all the strong and influential women in Chicago's fashion community. Congratulations Carol and all the The Diva Series: Fashionistas honorees!
