Maison De LaCour and Luxury Management presented “The Immaculate One: Benefiting the American Cancer Society.” The event took place at one of Chicago’s most beautiful and historic buildings Murphy Auditorium on October 16. Gathering Chicago’s most fashionable and most charitable under one roof to support a great cause.
The event showcased Maison De LaCour’s ready-to-wear 2012 edgy spring collection for men and women. The models, choreographed by Yana German, strutted down the runway displaying bold prints and eye-catching hair sculptures by VANITE’ Paul Mitchell Focus Salon and vividly surreal makeup by LACOUR BEAUTE. The attendees during intermission enjoyed a modern ballet performance set to the music of “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
The highlight of the evening was when a nine-year-old cancer survivor Alyssa’s wish became a reality as she was presented with an opportunity to debut on the runway in a Madison and Friends Boutique dress.
The guests were treated to delectable hors d’oeuvres while sipping on Russian Standard Cocktails, and tasting sugary sweets by Sugar Hills Bakery.
$5,000 was donated to the American Cancer Society from event’s proceeds.
