Design Worthy

| September 28, 2011 | Parties

THE PARTY Richard and Inese Driehaus, along with Driehaus Design Initiative, celebrated Chicago’s fiercest fashion students at the 10th anniversary celebration of The Driehaus Awards for Fashion Excellence. THE SCENE A sellout crowd of 400 enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while participating in a silent auction. A runway show and awards program followed, showcasing fashion’s future as well as past participants. The night was capped off with an after-party and live music. THE BOTTOM LINE In first place, Que Shebley walked away with $5,000, and more than $125,000 was raised for the Chicago Fashion Incubator, an organization that supports emerging local designers.
