The Victorian Ball in the 21st Century October 13, 2013
This year we will be supporting and honoring the visual and performing arts and fashion of Chicago. Founder Laura Elvis and Executive Producer Christy Collins, of Collins Design &Co. (collins-designs.com), along with a team of talented and creative people, are excited produce this nostalgic event.
This collaboration will merge the Victorian era into the 21stCentury. The Victorian Ball features some of Chicago’s Fashion, Photography, Music and Visual Art. These four categories will be portrayed and executed in live and interactive expeditions, throughout the evening, in true Collins form.
The NEW and elegant Parliament Chicago Night Club is the perfect setting for this enchanted evening. The Parliament is an exclusive club and lounge that will elevate this homage to Chicago's art by integrating contemporary style with timeless class. We will showcase specialty drinks with a flare-up taste of France from Bombay Sapphire. They will keep the drinks pouring all night but also a cash bar available and a complimentary champagne reception 7:00-8:00pm! Dessert Concepts will join us along with 1000 decadent desserts by Chef Omar of Top Chef!
Collins Designs & Co., is honored to produce Laura Elvis' vision of a Victorian Age incorporated with the modern arts! These four categories of Fashion, Photography, Music and Visual Art will be portrayed and executed in live and interactive expeditions thorough the evening by a Collins Design & Co. experience. Honorees will grace us sought after by Laura Elvis with great consideration and put on display for your enjoyment! Our creatively Avant-Garde evening will cater to artists: Fashion Designer, Fashion Photographer, Artists in Art and Music.
All guests are encouraged to attend the Ball dressed in their best fashion representation of what the Victorian era means to them in the 21st Century; while adding a flare of Marie Antoinette. This means we almost flirt with a Steam punk platform, suggesting a future that never was. Participants will wear period costumes, set to the present beat of Chicago’s underground House music; fusing two different worlds where deep soulful bass will keep those Victorian gowns and human hearts fluffed to perfection all night long. Paired with mood lighting, we invite everyone to come embrace an overall visually striking experience.
We will dance the night away while indulging in enchanting entertainment, music, elixirs, fashion, and more! Tickets are on sale with general admission and available for purchase.
