Fashion Focus Chicago: On the Runway

Imaginary People Show during Chicago Fashion Focus. Shoes provided by Akira - thanks Jon Cotay!

Last Wednesday, Fashion Focus Chicago (a week-long celebration of Chicago’s fashion industry) was all about InspireDesign – a showcase by five talented local designers who really raised the bar this year! The event was presented by Mario Tricoci and Vitaminwater, and I had the honor of producing it for 2nd year in a row along with Jennifer Wisniewski, as well as lots and lots of help from Kellye Henton (VT assistant) and our great team!

While animated sketches of each designer’s work started each segment thanks to Fig Media, DJ Megan Taylor brought our musical vision to life and facilitated the videos. Thank you City of Chicago for supporting local creativity on this level! – Lisa Marie
