Fashion for Good: Chicago Fashion Fetish Fete, part 1

Fashion for Good: Chicago Fashion Fetish Fete, part 1

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend the Fashion Fetish Fete at Park West in Chicago. This night wasn’t just about fashion…it provided a chance to honor the humanitarian efforts of selected individuals from the local fashion community. And, the funds raised by the event will go to the The Catholic Charities’ Veterans Services and Employment programs. So…it was a nice event for a great cause…We got to see some fabulous designs sent down the runway while knowing that our Veterans will have improved access to the services and support they need because of the money raised by the event.
This post is just part one of the coverage of this event! Be sure to check back throughout the week to see highlights from the runway shows.

First, I’d like to recognize all of the Humanitarian Achievement Award Recipients.

Also, Christina Roddi represented the Catholic Charities and thanked the organizers and attendees for their support.

Music for the event was provided by ObiSoulStar. They were jammin’

And…I’m pretty sure he was barefoot for most of the performance. lol

The fabulous and perky Aleah Connect from WCIU’s Fashion Express hosted the event.

One of the most charming moments of the event were when two real life Veterans walked the runway to show off their new looks, courtesy of Revamped Image Consulting. They were so sweet!

Stay tuned…I will be posting 5 more entries about this event…showcasing each one of the Runway Shows. You don’t want to miss them!!

OK…That’s all for now. Have a great Tuesday!!!

    Years ago, I tried the Valentina Lace Dress and loved the way it showed off my curves. So when I found out Kiyonna was creating a version of that dress out of VELVET, I knew I had to have it. The Kiyonna Hourglass Lace Dress* with velvet and lace is even more divine and curve-friendly than the original!
