Kathleen Henson, Tamara Mellon and Dorri McWhorter
Last month, fashion lovers from across the city landed at PUBLIC Chicago to attend an exclusive trunk show featuring apparel, shoes, and accessories by Tamara Mellon. The former chief creative officer and co-founder of Jimmy Choo, Mellon brought pieces from her own luxury lifestyle brand to the Library at PUBLIC. A portion of sales from the event benefited YWCA Metropolitan Chicago.
A private, invitation-only luncheon preceded the trunk show, where guests were able to take part in a Q & A session, with Mellon answering questions about her life and her recent book, "In My Shoes: A Memoir."
The trunk show was hosted by Chicago notables Carmin Awadzi, Heidy Best, Cindi Carlson,Yolanda Daniel, Kathleen Henson,Janet Mandell, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago CEO Dorri McWhorter, Grace Sergio, Dr. Jessica Shepherd, and Jennifer Worman.
