Fashion elite to gather in West Loop this weekend

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Ok, so we don't have a Fashion Week like New York or Paris. But Chicago is coming up in the style world (check out this slightly condescending New Yorker piece for proof). To celebrate, and to continue the progress, Chifa Elite Fashion Explosion hosts a number of the city's top designers -- including Alonzo Jackson, Alice Berry and Kevin Hill -- at Loft on Lake, 1366 W. Lake, from 7 p.m.-1 a.m.

The event, organized by The Bumblebee Network, will include a runway fashion show, artist performances (from DL Johnson, UNMOVABO, poet Yolonda Curtis and DJ Corey Sanford) and, of course, tons of networking opportunities. Tickets ($45, available here) include food and drink and a portion of proceeds will go to BUILD, Inc., a Chicago youth organization.
