The annual event which is a culmination of years of hard work by SAIC design students who hope to be the next Marc Jacbos, Zac Posen or Cynthia Rowley will take place May 2 with three presentations throughout the day in Millenium Park . It’s absolutely hands down one of our favorite Chicago fashion shows not only for the talented students but pouring of support from Chicago’s fashion community. In anticipated excitement for WALK 2014, invited guests and SAIC board members mingled amongst gliterring, gorgeous shoes and accessories at the Jimmy Choo store on Oak Street.
