Fashion Focus Chicago has come to an end, but last week I was able to attend the final runway show before the tents came down in Millennium Park. ‘The Art of Fashion’ took place Friday evening and in my opinion, the best was definitely saved for last! ‘The Art of Fashion’ showcased ten of Chicago’s most popular and seasoned designers in a power-packed runway show presenting their Spring/Summer 2013 collections.
Barbara Bates, Borris Powell, Eva Pazola, Lara Miller, Michael Alan Stein, Michelle Tan, Nade Baer, RUCH, SHALINI and SWABY headlined the final show this year. As look after look came down the runway, I was completely blown away by the designs.
These designers certainly aimed to please and Chicago fashionistas enjoyed some swoon-worthy show-stoppers in the collections. Here are some of my favorite looks from the show.
