Chicago got its own taste of fashion week on Feb. 10, when Alexis Cozzini of Gold Coast boutique Sarca joined Splash in co-hosting a brunch and fashion show featuring Nieves Lavi New York’s spring collection. Fashion-forward guests such as publicist Amanda Puck, Luxury Garage Sale’s Lindsay Segal and Mario Tricoci’s Megan Bueschel flocked to Alpana Singh’s River North hot spot The Boarding House (720 N. Wells). They sipped mimosas, enjoyed brunch and viewed a presentation of the line’s bright prints and flowing silhouettes paired with jewelry by Damen + Division. Post-meal, the namesake designers, Sam Nieves Velez and Sharon Lavi, were on hand to answer questions and discuss their work.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
