On Friday, April 17th, the Chicago History Museum hosted FashioNext- an insider fashion event and contest where three established Chicago designers competed to create a piece that will be permanently added to the exhibition- Chic Chicago: Couture Treasures from the Chicago History Museum. The winner, Price Walton, showcased their elaborate gown alongside fellow contestants Melissa Serpico Kamhout and Jermikko Shoshanna. Mario Tricoci provided hair and make-up styling for the runway presentation, and over 400 guests were able to enjoy the new GLK-class courtesy of Mercedes-Benz upon entering the museum. Mercedes-Benz also sponsored a raffle giveaway- a day of style and shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue, with transportation to and from the store in a brand new GLK!
