Twelve distinguished designers showcased their work at the 88th annual event including designs by Carolina Herrera, Oscar De La Renta and Ralph Lauren.
The looks ranged from back-to-school trends for tweens to elegant evening wear and jaw-dropping bridal gowns.
Local celebrities who took to the runway included “America’s Next Top Model” cycle 8 winner, Jaslene Gonzalez, Chicago Bear Kyle Long, actor Colin Egglesfield, real estate mogul Mario M. Tricoci and five Chicago Blackhawks players.
This annual event is the longest running charity fashion show in the country. This year, they hosted the evening at a new West Loop venue, Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago). The high ceilings and exposed brick walls generated a chic-meets-industrial ambience for the Oct. 2 event.
Proceeds from the evening will support The Coleman Foundation Comprehensive Brain and Spine Tumor Clinic at Rush.
