On March 17, 2018 (St. Patrick’s Day) I took a trip to Chicago to meet the directors of Midwest Fashion Week in hopes of simply getting a press pass to blog about the show. Being an influencer at Fashion Week was one of my goals I set out for the year back in January. Little did I know I would be meeting Berny Martin, founder of the organization.
Weeks passed, one thing led to another and I ended up not only receiving my press pass but becoming a member of the media team and hosting both shows on the @officialmidwestfashionweek account! Because of this I was able to share this experience with some of my fellow bloggers and very best friends! I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
The shows were vibrant, artistic, interactive, and everything I could have asked for in attending my first fashion shows. The strong presence of several different cultures throughout the show made for the perfect representation of midwest fashion. I’m already counting down the days until the Fall shows! Xo
