Chicago was excited and ready for decadent clothing from the Windy City’s newest up-and-coming crop of designers.
On Thursday, October 8th, the Virgin Hotels Chicago hosted Fashion Meets Music, a music-infused fashion presentation from designers from the Chicago Fashion Incubator. Settled in the hotel’s bar known as The Commons Club, twenty looks from past and current CFI members walked the runway. There was even a fashion illustrator to capture the looks by sketching with colored pencils while they made their way through the crowd. Ten of those looks were even designed exclusively for Virgin Hotels Chicago. Guests got a chance to sip Remy-Martin crafted cocktails, while watching aerobic pole dancers and RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 1 contestant Jade Sotomayor.
