Fashionably Charitable

| January 14, 2015 | Parties National

The Party
Over 700 chic guests gathered at the new Morgan Manufacturing for the 88th Annual Fashion Show, Imagine, for The Woman’s Board of Rush University Medical Center. A cocktail reception kicked off the night, followed by the fashion show, which featured collections from brands such as Max Mara, Oscar de la Renta and Vineyard Vines, and retailers like Chalk, Neapolitan and The Lake Forest Shop, to name just a few.

The People
The lights dimmed and the show began as a mix of 100 well-known local celebrities walked down the runway—posing like pros. The models included a mixture of North Shore natives and Chicagoans like America’s Next Top Model Cycle 8 winner Jaslene Gonzalez, Chicago Blackhawk Marcus Kruger, Chicago Bear Kyle Long and ESPN reporter Sarah Spain. Gloria Masterson of Kenilworth chaired the event.

The Highlights
After the show, guests and models mingled at the afterparty, enjoying small bites and premium cocktails while dancing to music by DJ Madrid Perry. The night raised over $500,000 to support intraoperative imaging technology. The Woman’s Board members deserve to strut their stuff! –Photos by John Reilly Photography
