Chicago Press Gets Sneak Peek of Fashion 2013
Chicago style blog Second City Style tweeted followers from SAIC’s Fashion 2013 Press Preview on April 4th, spotlighting the event’s stunning photographic wall display. Fashion 2013 producer and creative director Conrad Hamather, SAIC Sage Chair in Fashion Design Anke Loh, and The Walk Co-Chair Roopa Weber joined Chicago media representatives, SAIC Fashion Committee members, faculty and fashion students in the new SAIC Pop–Up shop, Su_7, at Block 37. SAIC President Dr. Walter Massey congratulated alums Liz Patelski (BFA 2011) and Lisa Panza (BFA 2011) on the successful launch of their new clothing line Remi Canarie, on view at the event. Patelski and Panza “were certainly no strangers to success prior to this launch, and it is wonderful to see their success continue right here in Chicago,” said Massey. “Like Liz and Lisa, SAIC is proud to be a part of the fashion design community that is thriving in Chicago.” Photographs of the event are available on the Fashion 2013 Facebook page.
