Chicago Fashion Focus (our version of Fashion Week) kicks off tomorrow and there will be plenty of events for folks to attend! There will be no shortage of industry workshops, fashion shows, designer meet-and-greets, and parties. With all these events happening, I’ve been crossing my fingers that there would be at least one with a philanthropic twist…AHA! I found it!
This Saturday the 4th, the Chicago-based online boutique, Studio-808.com, will host a runway show at Stone Lotus (873 N. Orleans) in conjunction with Fashion Focus. The show will begins at 8:30p and will showcase Chicago-area fashion from Phizza’z Designs, the Yana Collection, Boris Powell Designs, and more. A portion of the ticket proceeds are to benefit the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
Bear Necessities was founded in Chicago over 15 years ago by Kathleen Casey after her standing by her son during his five and half year battle with Wilms Tumor, a pediatric cancer. The organization provides support for children fighting cancer and their families, funding for research, and information and educational resources.
Tickets for the Friday’s show range from $35-$50. The $50 VIP tickets include early admission (8p) and access to a private vodka lounge. Click here to purchase tickets!
