I attend a number of blogger-related events in and around Chicago, but my favorite has to be the annual playCHIC Fashion Show every November!
If you’re not familiar, the playCHIC Fashion Show is all part of Chicago’s annual Toy and Game Week…a week that is dedicated to celebrate play and innovation through consumer events, conferences, awards and, of course, a fashion show!
This will be my second year as a PlayCHIC Fashion Ambassador and this year’s panel is comprised of some of the most influential social media mavens. These lovely ladies will be joining me!
Attending PlayChic is like no other fashion show you’ve experienced. Nowhere will you see a runway show that pairs the hottest fashion designers with world-famous toy and game brands to create an unforgettable evening.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT PLAYCHIC?
Much like “Project Runway” PlayCHIC challenges Chicago’s top fashion designers to create a runway look inspired by a playful toy or game. Borris Powell, will serve as host for the evening and creating a womenswear look inspired by Twister celebrating the 50th Anniversary. Elda De La Rosa is teaming up with Twister for an evening womenswear design guaranteed to turn heads. PomPomWow and Orbeez are creating their own looks and from what we hear, it’s going to be larger than life!
“The designs are currently in transit from California and they are quite massive. So large that we are having them shipped in special shaped packaging. I’m so excited for the audience see this ‘illuminating’ show.” says Souk Supantavong (PlayCHIC’s Fashion Show Producer), as she winks to us.
