    On Wednesday, Cynthia Rowley visited Chicago for a fabulous cocktail party at her Bucktown store. In town celebrating her prestigious SAIC Legend Of Fashion Award , the designer opened up her boutique to the stylish set, including one guest we just had to chat with. Namely Diane Brown RxArt's founder, who has collaborated with Cynthia Rowley and her husband, Bill Powers on a variety of projects.
