Philanthropists and major fashionistas descended upon the Museum of Contemporary Art April 24 for Saks Fifth Avenue‘s fifth annual fashion show to benefit A Better Chicago. This year, the fashionable cocktail reception and a runway show gave us an exclusive preview of the Fendi Pre-Fall 2017 collection.
The event was hosted by Amy Everard, Trisha Rooney, Shannon Schuyler and Claire York and 100% of ticket sales were donated to A Better Chicago. In addition to the fashion show, Saks Fifth Avenue hosted a Fendi trunk show April 24 -25, where clients could pre-order pieces from the brand’s Pre-Fall 2017 Collection that will be available at Saks Chicago.
And if you are not familiar with A Better Chicago, trust us when we tell you that it is one of the best philanthropy funds in the area. It is devoted to dramatically improving educational opportunities for low-income students by empowering Chicago’s most effective nonprofits to scale and meet the need for better educational options for our city and region.
