Get ready for the show! Compassion, Fashion & Cocktails is happening this week on Thursday, October 10th. Designers AS by DF and ASTARS will present their new 2013 Fall and Holiday collections at the runway fashion show at Frontier, 1072 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL. The restaurant has been transformed into a cutting edge runway scene for the fashion-forward event.
ASTARS, worn by celebrities like Alyssa Milano and model Rosie Huntington Whitely, defines itself as “relaxed sophistication” and is part of the famous Italian brand ALPINESTARS, established in 1963. Although ALPINESTARS is known for its leather jackets, ASTARS takes a different approach to fashion by focusing on chic and classic tops and elegant dresses that can be worn both casually for a shopping trip or easily turned into a great outfit for a night out.
AS by DF, which was also developed from ALPINESTARS, was created by Denise Focil in 2010 and is dedicated to the modern woman: “daring, sophisticated, and ready to take on the world.” Pieces from the brand’s Fall 2012 collection were highlighted in fashion magazines like InStyle and Glamour. The new 2013 collection contains a mixture of rebellious leather and classy floral prints, therefore appealing to a diverse mix of clientele.
In addition to showcasing fabulous fashion trends, the models at Compassion, Fashion & Cocktails will unveil high fashion hairstyles by Mercedes Urquiza Parrilli from George the Salon, who has worked with The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Rosie Show & The PGA. Hillary Fenton from Exclusive Artists will provide each model with a gorgeous makeover with M.A.C. cosmetics. The finishing touches for each outfit will include Sophia Forero jewelry and handbags by Annie Diamantidis of Annie Handbags.
