Fashion Focus Chicago: Chicago Fashion Week 2013

This October was filled with fashion and I loved every moment of it! This was my first year attending Chicago’s Fashion Week and I attended three shows.

On Wednesday October 16th, I went to the Live Out Loud Down the Runway which was a charity show for suicide prevention hosted by V103’s radio personality Consuella also known as Connie. Designers showcased was Crystal B. Designs, Purpose Handmade Jewelry, GIDI, and Project Runway Season 12 contestant Kahindo Mateene of Modanik.  To view Modanik’s Spring collection click here.
