Polo and Fashion at the Beach!

Dear Fashionistas,

Polo and fashion do compliment each other and quite well if we at Fashionista Chicago may say so ourselves.  
Last Saturday, October 1st, Chicago went international by hosting the Beach Polo World Cup. The two day event was held at North Avenue Beach, which was transformed into a polo field that offered spectators a front row seat. Grey Goose offered complimentary cocktails and Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar, and Fogo de Chao, kept all the fashionable spectators full with their tasty offerings.

Among the horses, the polo players and fans, a super chic fashion show was presented with ease through the sand and wind. This hip show featured f/w 2011 clothing for men and women from Cityblue Apparel and Denim located in Old Town. The models were styled by none other than Mallory Ulaszek, owner of City Blue.  Two fashion forward local designers were also presenting their collection including , C/FAN Designs and jules. (modern unique jewelry), alongside national brands such as L.A.M.B., AIKO, and Joie. 
If you missed the fashion show, all you had to do was look around and realized that the spectators demanded the attention with their Über fashion sense wearing floppy hats (one of fall’s biggest trends) and touches of fur (another trend) from the glamourous eras before.

Polo may be considered the game of royalty, but Chicago definitely reigned in style!!! Even Miss Illinois USA came out for all the fun, fashion and action.
