Last Friday, I mingled with friends from undergrad while taking in one of my favorite annual events. While at the University of Chicago, I was a member of MODA, a fashion platform on campus that catered to students’ more creative and stylish side. My fellow members and I wrote for the fashion and lifestyle, interviewed style influencers for the print magazine and designed pieces for the big annual event–the spring fashion show.

This year, I attended the fete as a guest and was met with a sea of familiar and new faces. I took in the runway show from the VIP section with a fellow MODA alum. The event took place in the Great Hall at Union Station and drew a huge crowd from both the university and the community. Over 70 designs were presented on student models. These looks were designed by a wide range of talent, from students who’d picked up sewing within the past year to established professionals like Lidia Wachowska of Evil Kitty. My favorite designs included beautiful and ultra-feminine dresses, and one look that was positively desert chic.

Attending the show as a guest was a new experience for me. I had always been backstage in the past, experiencing all the stress and nervousness that any designer or organizer can expect to feel. As an alum, I coasted in and received entrance without having to state my name. I was served grilled shrimp on a silver platter, given a goody bag and escorted to the VIP section. All in all, the experience was nothing short of dazzling. Till next year!
