Chicago Fashion Week to close with 'A MAYAN TALE'
21
Oct '11
Designer Anna Fong will close out an extraordinary week of fashion events with an exclusive preview of her Spring 2012 Collection on Friday, October 21 at Chicago's landmark BLACKSTONE RENAISSANCE HOTEL.

Fashion Designer Anna Fong Previews 2012 Spring Collection during Chicago Fashion Week 2011 Finale.

Drawing inspiration from her recent trip to Central America, Fong introduces "A MAYAN TALE" which pays homage to her Guatemalan heritage. “I'm really excited about the preview of my Spring 2012 collection”, Fong exclaims. She continues, “It's my most personal line yet because there are elements inspired by my culture in each piece”. Attendees at Fong's preview show can expect a presentation of rich, colorful hand-woven fabrics, in functional yet feminine silhouettes.

USANNA NEGOVAN of MICHIGAN AVENUE MAGAZINE will officiate as stunning models from the ROCK AGENCY hit the runway to give a glimpse of the 'effortlessly chic' ensembles Fong has crafted for next season. Event attendees will also be among the first to view the newly debuted 2012 MERCEDES-BENZ C-Class Coupe to be displayed on the red carpet.

'A Mayan Tale' will be an interactive affair, commencing with cocktail hour and a Styling Preview by industry veteran TONY DE PASCA of CARISSIMA SALON. After the fashion show, guests will have the opportunity to win several different prize packages (valued from $250 - $1,000 each) donated by generous sponsors: BANG & OLUFSEN, SUNDA RESTAURANT, ZAZU SALON & DAY SPA, THE UNDERGROUND and BELLA COLLETTA JEWELRY. All proceeds from the auction will go to benefit a charity focused on ending human trafficking – an issue near to the designer's heart.

DIET PEPSI – Fong's diet beverage of choice - will also provide fashionable SWAG bags to the first 100 guests. The Anna Fong Fashion Preview for Spring 2012 will be an experiential affair to be remembered.
