This October was filled with fashion and I loved every moment of it! This was my first year attending Chicago’s Fashion Week and I attended three shows.
On Wednesday October 16th, I went to the Live Out Loud Down the Runway which was a charity show for suicide prevention hosted by V103′s radio personality Consuella also known as Connie. Designers showcased was Crystal B. Designs, Purpose Handmade Jewelry, GIDI, and Project Runway Season 12 contestant Kahindo Mateene of Modanik. To view Modanik’s Spring collection click here.
On Friday October 18th, I went to the Art of Fashion Show hosted by Style Chicago. Designer showcased was Borris Powell, Calvin Tran, Eva Pazola, Hector Javier-Monarrez, Liliy & Migs, Maria Pinto, Mark Roscoe, Michelle Tan, SHALINI, and Shernett Swaby. To see my favorite collections click here.

I had the pleasure of attending the Love Your Curves Luncheon at Latino Fashion Week. Lornalitz and Rosie Mercado from Nuvo TV reality show Curvy Girls modeled in the show. The Blair Chic Boutique and the premiere of the Colombian designer Anastasia Casas were the only two showcases.
The Blair Chic Boutique showcased its latest pieces for the fall. Both Lornalitz and Rosie Mercado are wearing Blair Chic Boutique in the photo above.
I’m hoping next year Latino Fashion Week will have more plus designers and have its own night instead of a luncheon.
Anastasia Casas premiere her plus collection at the luncheon. She designed the collection because her daughter is plus size and she didn’t have fashionable clothes.
Last night I went to the Macy’s Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month hosted by Nick Verreos from Project Runway at the State Street Macy’s here in Chicago.
The Latina superstar Thalia was the inspiration for the runway designs. Latino Fashion Week and Vanidades saluted her as the 2013 Icon of Style.
This was a fun evening! They had coconut mojitos, beauty make overs, and a cool photo shoot where they made you a little scene flip book hosted by the people from http://www.alittescene.com.
Here are the runway looks:
Nick Verreos was a fabulous and hilarious host! The “in” pink is called Aruba Pink! I love it!
Tell me your favorite pieces!
Latino Fashion Week started last night at Block Thirty Seven in Chicago. I enjoyed the Latino inspired fashion and celebrity runway with many Chicago news reporters.
I fell in love with many designs. However my favorite designers of the night were: Andrea, Robdechi, and Ronald Rodriguez.
I enjoyed a beautiful glass of wine on the roof top at Drumbar behind the John Hancock building at the after party with Ms. Cynthia Boykin from What U Need Is . It was a peaceful and warm night next to the outdoor fireplace. Drumbar is definitely a hidden gem in Chicago.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the week. I will be blogging about my first Latino Fashion Week for the whole entire week.
