Le Thrift Consignment, located at 1821 W. Chicago Ave., pulled out all the stops for their first fall fashion show. Models breezed down the runway in everything from a stellar LBD with fur sleeves from the 60s to a gorgeous black Halston gown with a sexy slit that even Angelina Jolie couldn’t pass up. In the accessories department, we were eyeing well-heeled models in Jimmy Choo, YSL and Manolo Blahnik. Le Thrift Manager and Stylist, Thomas Vaughan, pulled together all of these stunning looks—covering everything from daywear to evening for Chicago’s chicest women. Guests noshed on sushi from Arami Sushi and mini-bites from Sharman by Chilam Balam and cupcakes by Sweet Creations by Vee Rubio, along with TYKU Premium Sake & Spirits and Vita Coco. 10% of the sales from the event went towards local charity Bridge to Success.
