Fleurotica, Chicago’s only floral fashion show, returned to the Garfield Park Conservatory in grand style on November 4. The show featured 15 local floral designers who created runway looks made entirely from plants, flowers and natural materials. Over $150,000 was raised to support the programs of the 113-year-old Conservatory.
Following check-in, guests meandered through rooms of lush plants uplit with dramatic lighting. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were presented by Heritage Restaurant and Caviar Bar and DJ All the Way Kay provided the beats. The event opened with a performance by The Joffrey Community Engagement Exelon Strobel Dancers.
