Midwest Fashion Week - Chicago

Midwest Fashion Week - Chicago

Seven designers awaiting their designs to be shown, final touches are completed by the makeup artists and hair stylist, and models begin lining up patiently waiting to walk into a room full of VIP guests. The lights are low, the guests are stopping by the red carpet and finding their seats, the classic scent of Chanel N5 fills the air, DJ Mike Laibart is setting the tone with his music selections, and Payal Patel our gorgeous MC of the night announces the show is about to begin.

I had the absolute pleasure of attending Midwest Fashion Week in Chicago, Illinois at The Metropolitan Club on the 66th floor of The Willis Tower. The room was filled with amazing designers, stunning models, beautiful guests, and outstanding fashion. I had the oppurtunity to take over Midwest Fashion Weeks Instagram stories for the night giving an exclusive behind the scenes look into the finely tuned details of MWFW.

Like I previously stated earlier there were seven designers included in this years fashion show, including; Sylvia Wilczynska, Toja by Nusa, Catou by Berny Martin, Barbara Bates, Alesia C., Sachika, and DMarsh. With designs ranging from suits, formal wear, bridal dresses, and more. The makeup artists were students from Tricoci University, which was fun for me because I attended their Esthetics program in Indiana and graduated from there in 2016.

Novelty Growth Team

All in all this night was a blast filled with laughter, smiles, hardworking friends, and beautiful designs. I’m pleased to say my first fashion show experience was a success and I’m already looking forward to next year.
