I spent last weekend I spent in Chicago, visiting friends and attending the Haute Couture Club of Chicago’s annual fashion show. What a wonderful time! A group of us converged on the city for fabric, fashion fun and frolic. Patti F. was our hostess, and we all had such fun! You saw some of the activities in my last post, and if you saw Carolyn’s, or Mardel’s blogs, you’ve gotten to see some of the goings-on.
Sunday was the actual show. The theme was “Tour de France”, and it took you on a fashionable whirlwind, from getting on the plane to Paris, to a sojourn to Deauville, skiing in the French Alps, and other fantastic flights of fashionable fancy. There were over one-hundred garments, though the show proceeded at a brisk clip, so it held our attention. It was a great fun time! Here are some pictures. You’ll notice a trend – I took a lot of pictures of my girlfriends and not so many of the show in general. Oh well! Here you go…
Cennetta had a bunch of (gorgeous) outfits in the show. Here are a couple:
There were other folks in the show too!
It was such a great time. It was wonderful to see old friends, meet new friends and view such inspiring work. The Haute Couture Club of Chicago hosts the fashion show every spring. If you are in the Chicago area, this is a great group. I wish we had one here in Boston!
