ENTERTAINMENT: Glamorama 2011 Recap

Last Friday night, 3,000 of the most fashionable Chicagoans showed up at the Chicago Theater to view the hottest fall trends from top designers: Sonia Rykel, Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, Armani Jeans, Tracy Reese, Papi, BarIII , Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse. The show fused art and fashion with music as well. Far East Movement and Cee lo Green performed their top hits. The mini collections for fall from all the designers where so well choreographed with different sets, music and a unique art approach that made you feel like you were at many of these designer's couture shows.

Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse
 I am still buzzing over Karl Lagerfeld's pieces for Macys. Mark your shopping calendar for August 31st-this will get me in the doors. The showcase was dramatic, like him. The models all wore sky high black s with tights. Leather and tweed shorts made the cut as well as party dresses in fuscia and a lot of black.  I will be on the wait list for the black and white part dress with his signature, over- sized  collar.

Marc by Marc Jacobs
  There were some apparent fall trends. I loved all the heavier tweed pieces and plaid. Each collection included some great solid , rich colored party dresses with longer hem lines. Fur collars and jackets were also in and seen over suiting and dresses. For men, the obvious trend that we have been seeing is tucked in trousers or even dress pants into combat style boots, loose flaps. It is very urban office. The fall fashion wasn't the only entertainment that got the crowd on their feet. Far East Movement and Cee lo Green performed their top hits  well as mini dance intermissions with some great child dancers from breakdancing to ballet.
