Big Time Benefit: Driehaus Awards for Fashion Excellence

Party with Chicago's fashion fabulous this Friday at the 10th Annual Driehaus Awards for Fashion Excellence. That's right: They're back to celebrate yet another successful year of emerging design talent in Chicago. The work of students from five Chicago-area design programs will be featured in a runway show, and an awards ceremony following will recognize outstanding achievements in design. The night also includes a silent auction, and proceeds from the evening will benefit the Chicago Fashion Incubator, a program that steals our hearts and blows our minds. Come sip cocktails and mingle with heavy-hitters in Chicago style. Not bad for a Friday night. 700 South Desplaines (one block south of Harrison Street); 312-932-8648.
