Chicago Fashion at NightWalk 2010

This past weekend I accompanied my friend Adryanna, fashion maven and blogger extraordinaire, to NightWalk 2010, the School of the Art Institute’s parade of student design talent. The event was held in the Modern Wing at the Art Institute, and the high-ceilinged, long space was ideal for the flashy runway event.

The 20 dresses are all privately owned by People magazine, WE and private collectors and the exhibit won’t be traveling, so this is the only chance to see the gowns side by side.
