Spring Fashion ENVY!
The perfect fashion occasion just in time for Spring in the Windy City!
By Amour Genesis
This past Wednesday I attended “Spring Fashion Envy” hosted by one of my favorite local stylists, Benjamin Cottrell. Not only was this industry fashion mixer perfect for mingling with my fellow fashion friends but was also a wonderful opportunity to meet a few new faces and network with local Chicago talents. The much anticipated spring event was held at the beautiful NV Penthouse Lounge in downtown Chicago.

After receiving our complimentary drink tickets, which were actually single playing cards, the guests headed to the eighth floor for drinks, hors d'oeuvres, fashion and mingling. Our fabulous drinks were sponsored by the one and only, “Harmonie Hpnotiq” liquor- perfect for the event’s blend of hip and trendy fashionistas! One of our signature drinks was “Harmonie Hpnotiq’s” delicious “Bubbles & Berries” cocktail mixed with a hint of champagne to top off our glamorous evening.
In addition to enjoying our refreshing drinks, we were also greeted by an assortment of delicious RA sushi to make the evening just right.
Some of the major industry leaders that were present at Spring Fashion Envy include Benjamin Cottrell (Stylist and Event Producer of Benjamin Cottrell Designs), Omar Villalobos (Vice-President and Co-founder of GOCA Designs), Robert Sharod (Founder and Designer of Atha Sharod Bridal), Shari Duffy (Owner and Event Planner of Ladies Night Chicago), Renita Manley-Garrett (Executive and Wardrobe Lifestyle Coach, Stylist and Personal Shopper of Revamped Image Consulting), Nicki Brashear (Owner of Fashionista Chicago), C.
