Sanford-Brown – Chicago partnered with Chicago Fashion Focus this year for their 36th annual fashion and portfolio show: Revolution. Chicago Fashion Focus is Chicago’s annual fashion week promoting and celebrating Chicago’s fashion industry sponsored by DCASE, the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. This year’s show was held at the prestigious Chicago Cultural Center as a premier showcase event!
The students and staff produced the evening’s event opening with the student/graduate portfolio show and networking followed by a grand runway show of student fashion presented with a pop art theme! This sold out show was attended by industry professionals, students and Chicago fashionistas. Students from every program participated, from the opening video segments by the video and animation students, programs and collateral by the graphic designers to the behind the scenes production by the fashion merchandising and fashion design students.
SBC-Chicago spotlighted collections from alumni designers, Mamie Kapend and Javonica Sapp. Mamie opened the show with her brilliant African print ready to wear, and closing the show, Javonica’s high end wedding gowns wowed the crowd.
