Elle’s Fourth Annual Fashion | Next Runway Show #MBFW #NYFW

I had the pleasure of attending the Elle Magazine Fashion Next fashion show presented by Maybelline New York and was not disappointed. As an exclusive runway presentation and award ceremony supporting the vision of emerging designers it was full of creativity and bold fashion.

It was absolutely gorgeous and cleverly set up for the show. Models walked in a figure eight around the seating.   Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Elle Magazine Fashion Next This year, Elle partnered with the prestigious School of the Arts Institute of Chicago (SAIC).
