Come celebrate Now You Know Events (NYK) 1-Year Anniversary as we host our first official event and honor one of our very own!

NYK Events is proud to announce its first sponsored event, a gallery of fashion and fine art photography by Kayoua Xiong (kxphotography.com).

Kayoua will be displaying the collection on September 23rd-25th at the Fashion Market studio in Chicago.

The event will feature live music by Steve Sebby and Sewing Pattern Music and will be sponsored by You Swoop, YumSquared Bakery, and Bun Mi Express.  Wine and hors d’ouevres will be served.

We will be accepting donations at the door, from guests who wish to support Kayoua, and giving half the proceeds to the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force.

Space is limited and RSVPs are NOW CLOSED

This gallery is 18+, must be 21+ on the night of the show opening.

Kayoua, a primary member of NYK, will be presenting her work in a gallery for the first time this September. Kayoua is a local fashion photographer who graduated from the Art Institute in 2009 and was recently featured in “Me In Focus Magazine”. As Kayoua describes this gallery:

“I started this project because I see the human body as an art form of its own, art we should not be ashamed to show. This gallery is an expression of that belief, inspired by publications like Purple Magazine and my own fashion photography. I chose to photograph fashion models who were not afraid to create art with their body, and imbue it with a daring yet elegant femininity. In some images, we sought a light and playful tone, in others created images of quiet beauty framing candid, unashamed allure.”

Big thanks to Omar Villalobos and The Fashion Market for making it possible to host the event. The Fashion Market is studio that opened recently that caters to artists and fashion. We wish them best of luck for future events.
