It’s that time….you can buy your tickets, raffle tickets, or make your donations for the Gold Coast Fashion Award Show at http://www.gcfas.com/

What is the Gold Coast Fashion Award Show, you ask?

Here it is:

The Gold Coast Fashion Award Show is the signature fundraising event of the Children’s Service Board, an affiliated organization of Lurie Children’s Hospital. The 58th Annual Gold Coast Fashion Show is scheduled for Friday, September 27, 2013 at the Hilton Chicago. Last year’s show attracted more than 1,300 guests and raised over $400,000 in net proceeds in support of the Division of Pediatric Surgery at Lurie Children’s Hospital.

The show includes individual store-sponsored segments from prestigious Chicago retailers and a competition segment where emerging designers compete for the coveted Gold Coast Fashion Show Award. Guests are treated to fashion through philanthropy as they view a fabulous display of elegant and high-end fashions in an array of categories from sportswear to evening wear.

Fashions from both the designers and retailers are presented in a fast-paced, live runway show. The competition segment opens the show and allows audience members to view the designers’ fashions before casting a ballot for their favorite. The designer who receives the most votes returns the following year to receive the Gold Coast Fashion Award and to present his or her fall collection. It is believed to be the only fashion honor in the country determined by the customer rather than the fashion trade. (from the website)
