Imerman Angels once again partnered with Chicago fashion house AKIRA to host the 8th Annual Garden of Even Fashion Show: Hall of Mirrors, on Sunday, October 2- kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Grossinger City Autoplex, a state-of-the-art 400,000 square-foot space in Lincoln Park, served as an industrial-chic backdrop for AKIRA’s newest crop of metallic minidresses, shiny blazers, and textured blouses. The gritty glam runway attracted over 3,000 guests who were treated to exciting music from DJ Madrid, AKIRA pop-up shops featuring their most stylish merchandise, live break dancers, and drinks and hors d’oeuvres from the city’s hottest eateries. The night continued as fashion hit the streets for an exclusive afterparty held at Japonais.

The clothing & footwear sponsors who made the night possible included: Wolverine, William Rast, PF Flyers, Original Penguin, AKIRA Black Label, Ben Sherman, Michael Antonio, ZiGi NY, and Jeffrey Campbell.  The food and beverage sponsors who generously donated their services for the event included: N9NE Steakhouse, Prasino, Epic, Burger Bar, Barn & Company, Moe’s Cantina, Dos Diablos, 4Rebels, Market, Cabot Creamery, LUNDA, Goose Island, Vitaminwater, Fuze, popchips, and Pirate’s Booty. Upstaging graciously provided the lighting for the show and the Bartenders Group donated bartending staff for the event.

Proceeds from the event go toward our mission to connect cancer fighters with survivors to enable 1-on-1 support.
