Ai – Chicago Student Talent Rocks the Runway

This past Thursday, May 4th, The Illinois Institute of Art proudly held their Annual Spring Fashion Show in Chicago’s River North neighborhood . Having attended this event in the past, I was quite excited with anticipation to see what this year would bring. Each year the school produces a fashion show exhibiting the work of their students. This year’s fashion show showcased over 100 student designs.

Though all eyes were on the runway, student involvement went beyond the stage lights. Fashion Marketing students used their skills as well, working hands on in promoting the event. Their participation in this ‘behind the scenes’ role was essential to the night’s success. For the Fashion Design students this was possibly the first time they’d seen their designs walk down the runway. Based on the artistry displayed, their potential is limitless. Cheers to the future of Chicago’s fashion industry!
