Share Article

Blush Bridal Fashion Show uncovers the niche bridal market in Chicago to encourage brides to consider custom-designed wedding gowns as an alternative to mass-produced dresses.

Announcing the inaugural Blush Bridal Fashion Show, taking the stage on Sunday, April 27th, 2014 as the very first fashion-inspired event at the recently opened Chez (247 E. Ontario, Fl. 2). From 2-4 p.m., guests will enjoy champagne, a raffle and a fashion show – featuring custom-designed gowns by rising local designers Alyssa Kristin Designs, Bryan K. Osburn, Dame Couture, Mignonette Bridal, Veronica Sheaffer and Victoria Sdoukos Couture.

The show will be hosted by fashion and media personality Ryan M. Beshel – a Chicago bon vivant often seen sharing his thoughts on style, trends and celebrity fashion on reputable networks such as FOX, NBC and ABC, in addition to his contributions, fashion recaps and reports for publications such as Women’s Wear Daily, Racked and Refinery29. The Blush Bridal Fashion Show planning committee is thrilled to have Beshel sign on as a host and is looking forward to the show’s overall production as he sets the tone of couture, high fashion and luxe bridal wear.

Each local Chicago designer is excited to showcase their diverse sense of style on the runway. The collections will not be your ordinary selection – with looks covering the gamut from refined, feminine, timeless gowns to clever fusions of vintage and fashion-forward design – and even some envelope-pushing modern dresses. The common theme is the designers’ detail, quality, and creative vision.

“The purpose of the Blush Bridal Fashion Show is to spotlight local designers whose talents might go under-appreciated in the competitive, commercial wedding industry. Passion is at the core of every designer and it shows through each beautifully handcrafted wedding dress. To me, this is what the wedding industry is all about,” said Michelle Sebastian, founder of Sebastian Events - Chicago. “I am thrilled that all of the designers took the time out of their busy schedules to partner with Sebastian Events on this luxe event. A bold statement is in the process of being cultivated and will materialize on the day of the show.”

The Blush Bridal Fashion Show will be held at Chez, a brand new contemporary loft which is the old site of a famous Chicago jazz nightclub frequented by celebrities such as Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. Champagne will be served in Gatsby-esque glasses, provided by The Festive Frog, a specialist in vintage barware. Elysia Roots Cake will display elegant culinary creations with delightful cupcakes and macaroons for patrons. Okyne Medialab, Inc. will spin tracks inspired by Lorde’s Pure Heroine album. Creative cocktail dress is encouraged. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.
