Art Chicago's Best Dressed

Factio Magazine launched two of the hottest art parties during Art Chicago on April 30th. Art collectors, enthusiasts and fashionistas began the night at the Chicago Creative Lounge sipping Hum & Bubbles and noshing on cheese and chocolate fondue from The Melting Pot and passed appetizers from LOKaL. Guests checked out art work (curated by fashion designer Agga B.) including Aga Podczaszy, Avisheh Mohsenin, Chadwick Anderson, Christine Sanderson, Conor Simpson, Jack Perno, Jolanta Niedziela, Jojo, Likalee, Marcos Raya, and Nestor Leivas. The lounge was transformed into a hip space with a 70s vibe with furniture vignettes from Lenny & Me and Persian rugs from Oscar Isberian, while fig media dj's played beats from the era. The band Streets on Fire performed to a packed crowd before guests headed out to the after party at Debonair Social Club. Once there, guests enjoyed three specialty tequila cocktails from Corzo like the Modern Margarita, PiƱatinini, and Breeze, or on the rocks if that met their fancy (check out how to make them here)!
