A couple of weeks ago, on September 21st, team tristinstyling attended to The 61st Annual Gold Coast Fashion Award Show, which serves as the signature fundraising event for Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
The evening started with a competition among four emerging designers including Chris Gelinas, Michael De Paulo, Nha Khanh and Wai Ming. Audience members voted and designer Michael De Paulo’s red-carpet inspired collection was everyone’s favorite, so he ended up receiving the prestigious Gold Coast Fashion Award. He specializes in beautiful evening wear with an innovative edge, focusing his collection on sculptural silhouettes and geometric design.
The event raised more than $1.1 M to benefit Lurie Children’s Division of Hematology, Oncology, Neuro-Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation. We also had the opportunity to interview Margaret Merritt, AKA, Neiman Marcus’ Runway Producer. Visit this link to read all about it!!
Thanks for checking us out!
Happy Humpday everyone!
Hope you are having a great week so far! We wanted to share another amazing restaurant that opened in the Wicker Park neighborhood in Chicago during this past Summer! Yes, we are talking about Mahalo Chicago.
Chicago has become a gourmet city over the past decade. The quality of the restaurants opening all over the city keeps getting higher and higher and we are not mad about it! We were lucky enough to be invited to Mahalo’s opening party and it was pretty epic, so we decided to share some pictures with you. Just look at how beautiful this space is:
Mahalo is a multi-faceted New Hawaiian Fusion eatery. Their modern design and Hawaiian surf shack feel takes you away to an island paradise. They have two levels with two bars, dining room seating, and a rooftop patio. Their menu offers their very own take on Polynesian-Asian fusion cuisine served with a modern flair and their tropical cocktails are perfect for a Mahalo stay-cation. Seriously, cocktails are to die for!
Do we need to say more?
All these drinks and dishes have us craving Mahalo! What are your plans for the weekend?
Thank you for stopping by!
