An Uncommon Bride
$20  Saturday, June 17th, 5-7pm
100% of proceeds benefiting Deborah’s Place

From candy-colored tulle, to bold red brocades and full on floral confections, the 2017 runway showcased gowns fit for the ultimate fashion bride. While American brides are usually identified by traditionally romantic themes and soft color palettes, the fairy tale princess is quickly becoming more punk, fantasy and futuristic.

For the bride who says no to basic white and wants to be audacious on their special day, we challenge our brands and artists to explore the avant-garde.

Body painting, bold colors, whimsical flair, architectural and the abstract all can be incorporated into a masterpiece. Color, texture and the re-imagining of romance allow us to create a bridal look that is fantastical in nature.
In our first The Makeup Show Chicago fashion show, we ask you to reinvent bridal beauty beyond the ordinary and astound our audience with exciting new ways of showcasing wedded bliss.

Your entry fee gets you access to the fashion show, the bar, unlimited networking as well as a ticket for our fundraising raffle. Come have some drinks with us as we celebrate all things bridal and raise money for a wonderful local charity.
