This past weekend was a big one for Chicago’s Fashion Scene! The School of the Art Institute of Chicago celebrated their annual (& super glam) Fashion Benefit Gala “The Walk.” The runway show was beautiful, and a major highlight was the work of 3 outstanding Junior Students – Blair Disbrow, Jordan Kiehle and Crystle Crubaugh – who were given amazing jewelry and crystal embellishments by The Walk’s presenting sponsor Swarovski to use on their show garments. As you can see in the images above, Blair, Jordan, and Crystle dreamt up an otherwordly array of stunningly creative and beautifully embellished designs!

Another highlight of the night was seeing Kate and Laura Mulleavy – the genius sisters behind famous fashion label Rodarte – take the stage to receive SAIC’s “Legend of Fashion” award. As a huge Rodarte fan, I was humbled by their grace and enthusiasm. It was a night to remember, and I can’t wait for next year’s festivities!
