Yep, it’s last call.
That is if you want tickets for the runway-side seats at the newest show of the style season, the Pioneer Press 2012 Fall Trend fashion event at Northbrook Pinstripes on Oct. 11at Northbrook Pinstripes at Willow Festival Shopping Center, 1150 Willow Road, just off Waukegan Road.
Festivities begin with the pre-party, 6-8 p.m., which will feature hors d’oeuvres, beverages, a silent auction and exhibits.
At 8 p.m., models will hit the runways to the sounds of pump-it-up music, bringing the North Shore the best of holiday and wintry looks from local stores and shops.
“I can’t wait,” said Janice Samberg of Glenview Vibrato Boutique, a fashion provider for the event. “Leather is one of the trends, ornamental things with gold and special details, chunky sweaters.”
And watch for the new colors. “Purple is big, burgundy is big, all of the berry tones... berry is big, greens, emerald greens, all of the blues,” said Samberg.
Jamie Pawlow, buyer at Frances Heffernan of Winnetka, another local fashion source for the show, agrees. “There are a few trends, and it’s the plums, the purples and those wonderful jewel tones that make it so fun,” Pawlow said.
Whe models will showcase styles available locally. So Neiman Marcus Northbrook Court and Enaz of Northfield/Highland Park, providing couture looks, CB Boutique of Lake Forest, Cy Fredrics Jewelers of Glenview, and GIGI BOTTEGA of downtown Evanston and York Furrier, Inc. of Elmhurst and Deer Park, are naturals for the event.
Teddie Kossof Salon Spa in Northfield will prepare the latest face and hair looks for the show. “Stepping out of your comfort zone, that’s what it’s all about,” said Teddie Kossof. In other words, take the fashion, but make it your own.
At Teddie Kossof Salon Spa, said Alan Kossof (Teddie’s son), the hairdressers “love working with their clients, but when they have the opportunity to be creative and step outside, they really get into it.”
And all this style is a good cause.
Ticket sales ($75 for the runway show, $150 VIP pass for the pre and after parties) benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities.
At the VIP After Party from 8:30 -11:30 p.m. guests can check out fashions close up, and purchase the dramatic and everyday looks showcased in the runway show.
