The celebration kicks off at 6 p.m., starting with an Art Affair and Community Exhibit featuring the work of local and student artists. There will also be a Media Arts Workshop that is free of charge and open to the public (though advance registration is required; workshop opens at noon). With food trucks and live music going until 11 p.m., these events alone are definitely not to be missed!

But the real draw of the evening is the “Aspire Forever” Fashion Show. Sit front row and watch as never before seen designs are paraded down the runway, a chic and fabulous way to top off the evening. The show begins at 8 p.m. and showcases the work of The Art Institute student designers (produced by James Campbell Productions in association with The Art Institute Fashion Marketing students).

In addition to early admission, VIP ticketholders also receive an awesome swag bag, a social hour with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a toast and VIP seating during the show. For fashion lovers who have always wanted to experience what it feels like to be a VIP during Fashion Week, this is the perfect opportunity. There are only 500 tickets available, so don’t wait to grab yours! You never know . . . the designers in this show could end up being the next Marc Jacobs, Miuccia Prada or Alexander McQueen.
