Last Friday I had the very cool opportunity to participate in Akira's, "Foot Fete" fashion event that was held at Water Tower Place's InFashion Lounge. While summer technically still has a few weeks left, now is the time to begin planning out your fall wardrobe. So with the event's central focus all about Akira's Top 4 Footwear Silhouettes (i.e. wedge sneakers, pumps, booties, and the floating heel) for this fall season, it was a definite must. The extremely refreshing perspective though was the approach that Water Tower Place's InFashion Lounge had to the presentation of the fashions.
For the few individuals who were able to snag a free RSVP ticket to the event, they got the rare opportunity to not only attend but participate in an intimate fashion preview. Akira presented their top footwear silhouettes for fall while showcasing fun and fashion forward ensembles that paired well with each shoe style. Myself and Akira's footwear buyer, Sadie Strausbaugh were the drivers of the fashion conversation, but due to the amazing setting of the InFashion Lounge attendees were able to chime in and interact immediately with questions, comments, and swoons.
