Entertainment: SAIC The Walk 2011 Fashion Recap

New talent showcased their lines last night under the tents in Millennium Park for The Walk 2011. The opening hour included signature cocktails from Grey Goose and a media studded and fashion blogger frenzy. The students of the Chicago Art Institute are extremely talented who presented to honor Ikram Goldman. I saw very little difference among the sophomores and the senior collections. The inspirational night included scholarships and awards given to SAIC students on their collection achievements.

 The collections were as different as the designers behind them with inspirations as diverse as : technology vs. nature (Nicole O'Malley), Japanese Samurai Armor (Jasmine Tsang),  and Disney Superheros (Lauren Rataj).

Thirty five sophomores, 46 juniors and 14 seniors sent three for four pieces down the catwalk. Many of the collections were extremely avant garde, others seemed very wearable and right on trend with future streetwear.

 The creativity filled the tents to the brim with collections of knit wear, mask-wearing models, 80's pop art street-wear and gowns to name a few. Structure was a common thread among many of the designers, with fan designs and an umbrella skirt (Derek R. Conrad).
