Event Recap: Emalon x Fashionhouse Chicago “Runway & Recycle” Fashion Preview

A few weeks ago, I attended the Runway & Recycle Fashion Preview presented by Melissa Taylor of Emalon and Fashionhouse Chicago. The show featured looks designed my Melissa for Emalon and Recycled designer pieces from Melissa’s Fashionhouse Chicago Consignment Store. The show got off to a great start as the models came stomping down the runway sporting HAUTE Emalon pieces and Groupie Love handbags. Although it was a just a preview of what’s to come from Emalon, the show definitely left us wanting to see more from the collection! The pieces are available for sale, stop by their showroom today!

Check out Emalon’s pieces below…

This picture doesn’t do these pants any justice! The 3 layer apron in front is genius! A great way to put a spend on traditional slacks.

This outfit makes me wish I was a size 4, such is life…sigh!

Just dope, no other words…

These riding pants hit the spot, love the print and texture!

What I love most about Melissa is she is hella creative! Her eye for fashion and design is awesome, she’s definitely not afraid to play with texture! Love it!

Here are my favorite looks from Fashionhouse Chicago…

Melissa designed me a dress but I hurried up and took it off because I plan on wearing it again very soon but here’s a little snippet of it…
