What do you get when you mix the latest Indian fashion, an incredible location and a good cause? The 1st Annual Chicago Global Runway fashion show, a South Asian fashion experience taking place June 24th – 25th at Preston Hall at the Chicago Cultural Center. Luxemi is excited to be a promotional sponsor of the event, which showcases international and local fashion designers including Payal Singhal, Reveti, Khoobsurat by Mani Kohli and AKIRA.
In addition to a fashion show, the event features a silent auction as well as a gala, the perfect place to wear one of your favorite sarees or salwars from Luxemi. At the silent auction, make sure to bid on Luxemi’s contributions: 1) a rental credit from Luxemi worth $250 which is good towards borrowing anything from Luxemi’s closet and 2) one of our favorite pieces, the Modern Kundan Set worth $358! On Saturday, June 25th, there will also be a pop up show at Hotel Allergo, where you can buy your favorite pieces from the fashion show and even meet with the designers.
But here’s the best part: proceeds from the event will go towards Save A Mother (Save a mother. Save a family. Save a community.), a not-for-profit organization that provides healthcare solutions to the poor in India. Since its inception in 2008, Save A Mother has worked with over 854 Indian villages to reduce maternal and infant mortality. By spending only $100 per village, its team of 2000 activists has successfully reduced maternal mortality from 645 to 65 and neonatal mortality by 41 to 9, all in just one year.
An event dedicated to high fashion and a noble cause? This is a Luxemi must attend event. There are only 300 tickets, so make sure you pick yours up before they sell out. You can purchase them at www.chicagoglobalrunway.com or call 312.715.8809.
