Infinite Summer: Introducing Atelier AZZA SS 2014

by Lauren

     When we heard that Atelier Azza and Refinery 29 were teaming up to host the fashion event of the summer, we knew this was one party we definitely couldn’t miss. So we brought out some ultra-girly pastel dresses, some nude pumps, and headed to Prairie Production with some of Chicago’s most fashionable socialites.

       We were greeted at the door with a glass of champagne and were immediately drawn to Elaina Vazquez “Girly Glam” spread of small (and very chic) bites. We had seen some of this lady’s presentation skills on her website, and were delightfully surprised to find her at the event. Some of her offerings included mini lobster tacos, mini heart shaped chocolate chip cookies, and Sugar’s personal favorite, the “chic burger”. The tasty apps (and of course the champagne!) started our evening off right. We had a great time mixing and mingling, (and eying some pretty epic outfits) as we browsed some of AZZA’s best pieces. Naturally, we took a liking to the bejeweled harness, because what girl doesn’t love a little sparkle?!

         When Azeeza’s Algebra collection was finally revealed in a gorgeous runway show, we were majorly impressed. The collection consisted of beautiful tailored pieces that were embellished to perfection. We especially loved the two- piece ensembles, and could totally picture ourselves rocking them around Chi city. Congratulations to Azeeza on another impressive collection and successful show.
