Here is a great reason to dress up and do some good! On May 17th, 2011, Laundry Magazine and We Do All Events will present Growing Works, a runway show featuring collections by Chicago's best new fashion design graduates. The event is part of an initiative launched by Laundry Magazine to support the city's emerging designer community and to display their talent in in a professional and creative environment.
In another gesture of gesture of generosity, Laundry Magazine has also partnered with Flashes of Hope, a national nonprofit that has made it their goal to change the way children with cancer see themselves through the gift of photography, as well as raise money for pediatric cancer research.
Held in Garfield Park Conservatory on May 17th, Growing Works will feature pieces by 14 local up and coming designers in an exclusive runway show. Passed hors d'oeuvres and beverages will be served and open exploration of the Conservatory is encouraged. It should be warm by then! All models are provided by Agency Galatea and music will be provided by Time Out Chicago’s Club editor, Joshua Furgeson.
General admission to the Conservatory is at 7pm with the runway show at 8pm. Student/General Admission tickets are $15, reserved seats are $25 and Monet Garden VIP tickets are $125. More details are below:
