This year’s event celebrated the impact of the Michael James, Tilly Chapman, John Mangiameli and Max I. Walker Cleaners. The evening was a huge success, raising nearly $75,000.
This will provide fantastic support to our area designers! All funds raised will support The Fashion Institute of the Midwest’s designer education and support. The support from our contributors and sponsors sallows us to expand awareness and appreciation for the art of Fashion Design as exhibited through talent right here in the Midwest. This support encourages those who are pursuing the arts as a profession and provides valuable life skills such as confidence, team-work, self-expression and discipline.
