On Wednesday night, twelve students from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago graduating with a Master of Design or Post-Baccalaureate degree showed off their creations in a fashion show at the beautiful Palm Court at the Drake Hotel. The interactive presentation was more interesting than a traditional runway show. Each designer presented three to five looks and models strolled around the fountain in the center of the room. Post-Baccalaureate students include Marisa Choate, Mary Gigler, Prarna Mansukahni, Karaline Stark, Johnathon Taylor, Summer Wang, Sherry Wang, and Qing Wang. Master of Design students include Bert Marckwardt, Carmine Ro, Fufu Tsao, and Lindsey Whittle.
