Fall Fashion Trends Shine at Macy's Glamorama

Sarah Sebastian

The fashion event of the year in Chicago was in bright lights at the Chicago Theater Friday, August 12. The annual Macy's Glamorama fused art, music and fashion in a nonstop entertaining show. Art was an on going theme with eye-popping style showcased behind famous paintings as the backdrop. Fall fashion trends included retro flashback cuts like Marc by Marc Jacobs 40's inspired suits and 3/4 length skirts and pill box hats. A lot of suiting was shown including three pieces suiting from Kenneth Cole Reaction. Pretty party dresses were included in all the collections and pops of colors such as red and fuscia received the biggest applause. With a Van Gogh flash intro dancers hit the stage between the designers collections, but the real stars were the kid dancers who spun, jumped and breakdanced.

Sonia Rykel's French inspired collection included all the hot fall trends: plaid, fur jackets, longer hem lines and pops of green and red colors. The biggest fall trend for men was tucked in trousers, jeans or dress pants into combat boots. Armani Jeans and Kenneth Cole Reaction both had their male models in this urban trend. The men may of received the biggest cheers when Miami underwear line, Papi was showcased with sport- playing, shirtless men in the bright colored underwear briefs ran across the stage holding footballs.

Fashion and music was the collaboration with Far East Movement, known for their G6 club hit that took the stage and had the crowd on their feet.  Cee lo Green (the Voice) closed the show with his top hits and surprised the crowd with singing songs he wrote like Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy' and Pussy Cat Doll's, 'Dontcha'. Well-heeled Chicagoans love a good fashion event, and with 3,000 people in awe of fall fashion the Ronald McDonald house raised a lot of money for families in Chicagoland and NW Indiana.
