Happy Monday to all my amazing Vandie B followers!
What better way to begin the week than by sharing my experience with you at the highly anticipated 2nd Annual Taste of Summer Fashion Show?! (Honestly, there is no better way)!
Let me begin by saying that the hard-working women of The 8874 Group produced the best runway experience that I have attended in Chicago thus far! The simple and chic decor to the taste of complimentary, sweet Moscato wine to the booze-infused cupcakes by Elateibles to the variety of awesome tastes and live sounds which the models sashayed to down the runway was definitely a fashion experience to be reckoned with!
The host, J “Always Amped” Cole (Founder of @EatingGoodChicago) did a wonderful job at keeping the crowd engaged and entertained. And, the fashion designers and brands on the runway? Loved them! Maryam Garba Designs, Ken Kreates, unisex jewelry line – Lucid Rebellion, designs featured by celebrity nail artist, Spifster, bold, vegan lip color line – Profixx, SINIS by Carrington Ludlow (recipient of the Young Designer’s Award) and Sheila Rashid all presented great collections!
I absolutely fell in love with Ken Kreates red crocheted monokini and a colorful, tribal 2-piece suit by Sheila Rashid! Overall, the 2nd Annual Taste of Summer Fashion Show perfected the task of infusing fashion, foods and art in one night! I am excited to see what next year’s show holds!
Check out some photos below from my night! Enjoy :)
