Next Wednesday will mark the first ever summer showing of Fade to Light: A Multidimensional Fashion Event, 7pm at the Crystal Ballroom. The event, which has had a February showing for the last two years, is known for providing designers with pretty much free reign over how to showcase their collections, so you can expect some unconventional presentations mixed in with the more traditional runway fare from a group of local designers that includes both established names and emerging talent. Among those showing this season will be Project Runway Season 11 winner Michelle Lesniak (girl has been EVERYWHERE lately), avant garde menswear designer Joshua Buck for Chicago Harper and local design pillar Studio SKB, along with Bad Wolf Clothier, a newer line by recent-ish Ai grads Devon Burrus and Seth Noles. This show is always a big hit so you might want to snag your tickets asap. See the full list of designers showing below.
