Chicago hosts Latino Fashion Week

The opening night of Latino Fashion Week was as fierce as the models walking the runway. The opening night was Oct. 11 at Block Thirty Seven in downtown Chicago. Models, photographers, spectators and friends gathered for the opening of a weeklong celebration of Latino culture through fashion.

Rose Mandel is owner of Next Fashion Chicago and Madel Productions where she serves as producer and director throughout Chicago Fashion Week. During the opening night of Latino Fashion Week, she maneuvered the room gracefully as several spectators recognized her as a staple in Chicago Fashion. Mandel said that Latino Fashion Week is crucial, especially in a city like Chicago.

"Fashion period is important. Keeping fashion alive is important," said Mandel. "The industry and retail has changed so dramatically over the last five to 10 years just making sure people are aware and the community is involved, and nights like this are a support of design."

Latino culture, in particular, has a very signature style. Runway models strutted their stuff during opening night in some of the most infamous designer labels.

One designer, Richard Dayhoff, featured his 2019 spring/summer ahleisure collection at the show ( although he opened with a couple selections from the fall/winter 2018-19 line that is available now ). Dayhoff is a member of the Chicago Mayor's Fashion Council and his designs has been featured in Elle, Harper Bazaar, W, Glamour and Men's Style. His resume also includes styling Oprah Winfrey as well as co-hosting CBS's weekly show Fashion Police.

"Latin fashion has really evolved," said Dayhoff. "Latino Fashion Week is about diversity and inclusion. Latino Fashion Week designs are by Latinos, but for everyone."
