Hello. As you may know, I recently took over Chicago Fashion Connect, which I have changed to Chicago Fashion Scene. I have big plans for this group so clearly the first order of business is a meet-and-greet. Thankfully, my friend and our Assistant Organizer MISH (http://www.meetup.com/ChicagoFashionScene/members/11440169/) is the undisputed champion of Meetup venues and we have the fabulous Araon (http://www.ara-on.com/) as the venue for our first after-work mixer.
This Meetup is a social call for designers, models, makeup artists, fashion bloggers, photographers, and any other individuals who are serious and passionate about fashion. We are planning a fashion show for the fall and we want as many Chicago Fashion Scene members involved. (We will be joined on the "arts" side by members of my other group, Chicago Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/chicagomeetup/), formerly the Creative Social Club.) We are also working on a strictly-work workshop in Chicago Fashion Scene scheduled for Wednesday, June 26th, at Capital One 360 Cafe as a follow up to this social event.
Mish will be working on great drinks and sushi appetizer specials for our group. His Meetups at Araon in his own groups are extremely popular and well-received, so this will be an outstanding time. However, please note that Chicago Fashion Scene is an industry-oriented group so we reserve the right to cancel RSVPs by any individuals whose intentions appear to be less than professional. Otherwise, SEE YOU THERE!
