The Museum of Contemporary Art was transformed recently into a runway fit for fashion royalty—Oscar de la Renta. Hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue, the event combined a cocktail reception and show featuring the brand’s Fall 2015 collection by Creative Director Peter Copping, who graciously greeted guests after the last model took to the runway. The event raised $50,000 and 100% of proceeds went to A Better Chicago, a local charity that raises money, as well as brings awareness to improve educational opportunities for low-income children, adults and families in Chicago.
