Upon arrival, the NYK crew was greeted by the man of the hour, our exuberant host Omar Villalobos. We were lead on a behind the scenes tour of The Fashion Market and introduced to the stars of Friday night’s fashion extravaganza.
Gordana Rasic is the mastermind behind the visceral fashion label, Goca. Her latest collection is inspired by her father’s struggle with cancer. It explores how emphasizing parts of the body influences our experience of beauty. Click Here for pictures from the fashion show.
Angela Morano, Maggie Meersman, DJ Sonicrayne and DJ Shadow V.I.P
Millinery designer Angela Morano, who provided ‘party hats’ (ranging from 2″ straw fedoras to full on facinators), Maggie Meersman who presented the crowd with petite cupcakes speckled with black & white sprinkles (complementing the decor) and base beats from DJ Sonicrayne and DJ Shadow V.I.P set the mood for the evening.
Patsy Campbell, Director of The Fashion Market, was inspired by the prolific support for the indie art scene she saw in Europe. Everywhere she looked there were sophisticated soirees in intimate spaces celebrating many forms of art in one setting. Her goal is to provide Chicagoans with similar “multi-sensory experiences” while offering artists the opportunity to showcase their work for a nominal fee.
