This was the first "real" fashion show I have ever attended, complete with a never-ending runway and towering models. I was accompanied by one of my best friends and former college roomie as well as Lucrecia of Fashion is Poison.
Christina's line, C/FAN, opened the show with a bang. Her Spring 2010 collection exudes effortless elegance. The luxurious silk crepe de chine pieces are clean and simple but display keen attention to detail and playful use of color. One of my favorite aspects of the line is its wearability. With the right accessories, the dresses could go from the office to a casual weekend look to a more formal evening affair. With the pompadour-esque hair, blingy jewelry and strappy sandals, Christina gave her pieces an edgy feel for the show...

Besides the fashion show, we did some Chicago sightseeing and had brunch with Tavi of Style Rookie.
