Fashion Presentation & Awards
Join Chicago Fashion Foundation at our 8th Annual Design Competition & Showcase as we celebrate all the exciting talent in Chicago's fashion design community! You won't want to miss our fabulous runway collective of emerging, alumni and established Chicago fashion designers.
Fourteen finalists—our Chicago emerging designers created outfits inspired by the historic Merchandise Mart. The winner will receive a $5,000 fashion design scholarship, with smaller scholarships being awarded to second and third place.
We are very proud of our winner from last year, 22 year old Alexander Knox, who became a contestant on season 13 of "Project Runway". Knox made it through ten challenges before being eliminated.
Interspersed throughout the competition, we will feature collections from our outstanding alumni designers and several of Chicago's exceptional fashion designers. You won't want to miss these gorgeous designs gliding down the runway!
Before the fashion presentation mingle with the who's-who of the Chicago fashion industry while enjoying premium cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, silent auction and raffle and photo opportunities by our step and repeat.
To keep the cycle of excellence and innovation alive, all ticket sales go towards student scholarships and special fashion programming.
