Nicole’s First Smashing Fashion Show

May 21, 2014

This past Saturday, in beautiful old Chicago building off of Lake Shore drive Smashing Golf and Tennis had the chance to walk down the runway.  The event was held at The Fort Nightly Club* – a beautiful and historic venue.

A unique aspect of the fashion show was that everything walking down the runway was Made in Chicago.

All of the fabric and designers are local and their work ranged in every different type of apparel. Smashing Golf and Tennis covered the athletic apparel while there was also a range of tailored suits, floor length gowns, fun spring tops, and unique transforming scarves. Designers modeled their own clothes and had a blast on the catwalk.

Guests enjoyed a fun fashion show followed by the opportunity to shop for the looks they had just seen with 10% of their purchase going to Big Brothers / Big Sisters.  So many people were impressed with the looks they had seen and there was a rush to buy and it was a great success.

This fashion show was a fun way to donate to charity as well as support great local Chicago designer. It was a very fun event that Smashing Golf and Tennis is proud to be a part of and support!

Don’t Forget that everyone is invited to the Made in Chicago Spring Fling Cocktail Party this Friday from 5-8.  Come celebrate Spring with and see the new collections from 11 Chicago designers including Smashing Golf & Tennis at 17 E Pearson St.  (Click HERE for more event details.)

 Have a Smashing Day!

*The Fortnightly of Chicago, the city’s oldest women’s organization, was founded in 1873 during the frenzy of rebuilding and renewal that swept the ravaged city after the Chicago Fire of 1871. Embodying the nineteenth century passion for self-improvement, founder Kate Newell Doggett gathered a group of like-minded friends to meet regularly and to research and present intellectually stimulating papers for each other’s edification.
