On Wednesday the sun was shining in Chicago, the breezes were warm, and it was the perfect night to step out on the town for a great cause and some great shopping! Henry & Belle Jeans, K. Amato jewelry and the Blue Jeans Bar invited us to kick off the season and celebrate summer denim with the Chicago Denim Darlings event. Held at the elegant West Loop restaurant, Nellcote, the fashionable shopping affair featuring local denim and accessories brands, was designed to benefit Clothes4Souls, a global non profit dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.
Guests were asked to bring in clothing donations for Clothes4Souls and as a reward, were treated to some of the most premium denim styles that Chicago has to offer while getting to sip on delicious wines from The Naked Grape and nosh on apps from Nellcote. Hosted by some of Chicago’s well known industry names, Henry & Belle asked the committee to pick out some of their favorite styles of denim to be displayed to shoppers. Kristen Amato of K. Amato jewelry displayed her glittering wares with special deals just for the event, and The Blue Jeans Bar boasted luxe leather bags, racks of swingy summery tops and adorable shopping bags to tote all of our newfound goodies home. Here’s to summer shopping in Chicago!
