A Night at the Museum, an official Fashion Focus Week 2012 event hosted by Shari Duffy - owner of Ladies Night Chicago, took place on October 15th, 2012 at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Fashionistas, socialites, bloggers, models, politicians, and members of the media came together to celebrate fashion au nature.
The concept: fashion meets nature in an ornate ceremony of chic.
This event officially launched Fashion Focus Week - a week-long celebration of style, high-society, and networking for the who's who of the local and national fashion scene. Some of the familiar, lovely faces present included Miss Chicago 2012 Marisa Buchheit, lead educational consultant for Northwest Chicagoland Martina Gonzalez, and Jeff Conway of NBC's 24/7.
A variety of vendors showcasing goods ranging from magnetic neck-ties to couture chocolate truffles were present and shared their goals and aspirations with guests. One of our faves, Spun Confections, joyfully provided attendees with 4 unique flavors of cotton-candy.
The night was filled with diverse bits of mots migons by vendors, media gurus, and guests. The following are some that capture the joie d'etre of the evening:

The fashionable tossing and turning is a genuine piece of the style puzzle that is Chicago as it is finding its prized wardrobe in the highly-competitive world of glam.
