This past Friday, January 27th the dynamic design duo, Gordana Rasic & Omar Villalobos, behind the fashion label GOCA Designs held a fundraiser at NV Penthouse Lounge to help make an amazing dream & opportunity become a reality: Show at New York Fashion Week!
Needless to say, I was there in full force to lend my support in helping to get these two tremendously talented individuals to New York Fashion Week. I was first introduced to GOCA Designs last year in 2011 during Latino Fashion Week. Their amazing use of fabrics, clean lines, and amazing palette of color instantly won me over and I have been a fan ever since.
The fundraiser kicked off with complimentary Hypnotic Honey Champagne, great hors d'oeuvres and a raffle of stellar swag. I was definitely eyeing one of gift baskets but as lady luck would have it, it just wasn't meant to be.
I'm so excited that these two will be showcasing their amazing talent at the Emerge! Show on February 14th in New York (such an amazing day to showcase brilliant fashions that highlight and feature the feminine silhouette).
Keep your eye out for these two Chicago Fashionistas, they are definitely the next big thing!
