Listening to erythematic music, being blinded by the lights, and watching the most gorgeous individuals walk the runway; Ronald McDonald House of Charities had its annual event this year called Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama Fashion Fantasy. It was held this past Friday, August 13th at the historical Chicago Theater, where many celebrities and stars around the world have performed. It’s a fashion show held every year sponsored by Macy’s collaborating with RMHC as a fundraiser to help the well being of less fortunate families in America.
As an attendee, you got the chance to enjoy great music offering variety of alternative mixed tunes, while models lock the catwalk; in addition, there were dance segments, a spectacular performance from Eric Hutchinson and Grammy award winner Macy Gray singing her hit single “I Try”. Different well known designers showcased their fall lines such as Tommy Hilfiger, Philosophy, Just Cavalli and Marc Jacobs along with many other designers. For a person into fashion, this wasn’t a show to miss; even the many guests that attended were “Glam-ed” up. There were trendy dresses, funky hairstyles, to shiny, bold jewelry. Definitely an event you would want to attend classy and geared to fashion for.
Some of the more extravagant segments were Hugo Boss presenting their lines of suits. What was seen from the big Boss was the fitted Euro cut with many tints of black, slate, and gray suits being presented. 2(x)ist, an underwear brand, aroused the crowd with every male model bringing their chiseled six pack and to die for chest to center stage, while the ladies danced using and showing every curve and flexibility in their bones. To sweeten the audience, a performance of young teens took the stage dancing to iconic Madonna’s “Material Girl,” leading to hip hop sounds. The headliner was Macy Gray, ending the show with a heart felt song “Beauty in the world.” Closing the show, every performer on stage indulging the crowd to clap for beauty.
With every event from past years, again this year was greatly organized with a cohesive presentation. A spectacular performance with memorable moments of performers (Definitely the teens were something to remember). If you were to miss this show this year, make sure you attend next year, because each year they deliver with different designers and performers. Fortunately, it’s not a show just in Chicago; however, they present similar shows across the nation as well, with New York and San Francisco being the selected cities. Furthermore, what really makes the event grand? Is that it’s all for a good cause and all proceeds are funded to RMHC. Chicago definitely needs a show like Glamorama to put Chicago’s fashion on the map. Hoping for a possible Chicago Fashion Week this year, if it happens, the Fashion Designer Examiner will make sure to bring you the details. Stay Glam.
