On the Scene: Fashion House Chicago presents RTW line Emalon
I have known Melissa Taylor, owner and founder of consignment store Fashion House Chicago (above talking before she presents the collection) as well as the creator of her fashion line Emalon for a very long time. I fell in love with her Chloe bag and vintage dress before I fell in love with her but that started a conversation of fashion between us that has never stopped. Throughout the years I learned that Melissa was a intern at CHANEL (how cool is that), assisted in prepping and styling models, and executed a range of trunk shows. Always fashionable, always nice and always an entrepreneur she has taken Chicago’s fashion scene by storm.
I was invited Labor Day weekend to witness her premiere for RTW line Emalon. The chic and sophisticated separates in lush fabrics was created for a urbanista who loves to not follow trends but make people notice. Also it served for her clients to become familiar with her new location as well as shop her inventory of consignment and vintage pieces. The runway show was intimate yet inspiring with the pieces presented. Groupie Love Bags provided the handwear and Dawn prepped the models faces with makeup from her own line Vivid.
