Among FashionBar Chicago‘s Chicago Fashion Week runway shows, the event entitled Beautiful Business: A Professional Presentation was an evening aimed at those striving to reach their goal of making a career in the fashion industry. The night included a cocktail bar and complementary hors d’oeuvres. With Chicago’s John Marshall Law School as the professional backdrop, local boutique Akira (Featured Image) and designers Anastasia Chatzka and Potoya Marie Cobbs of Marie Chic Curves presented their successful fashion lines on the runway.

In addition to locally designed fashions presented this season, FashionBar Chicago‘s CEO, Tony Long aims to “bring awareness to ‘wellness’ as wellness is the foundation of fashion and beauty”. With that in mind, a percentage of the proceeds from Chicago Fashion Week will be benefiting the American Cancer Society of Illinois.
