On March 6th, the fashion design students from the Illinois Institute of Art showcased their amazing talent on the runway, with one designer in particular scoring an unprecedented perfect 10 winning the best in show. Danielle Wyman won this distinctive honor for her "Beautiful Creatures" collection thanks to judges Dorothy Fuller and Marcia Brenner from the Apparel Industry Board, Andrea Schwartz from Macy's, Laura Wallace from David Yurman, Andy Gloyeske from Saks Fifth Avenue and Xochil Herrera from Eliana Lily. The forth annual fashion show was held at the Harris Theater and featured both an afternoon show (our publisher Henrique Kerch and editor-in-chief Melissa Maynard who are both ILIA grads hosted) and evening show. The media portion of FAME '09 featured the best in digital animation, filmmaking and visual effects. For more information about ILIA Chicago, please click here.
