Michi Marshall and Margaret O’Connor hosted an event to introduce London-trained designer Stephane St. Jaymes, who has recently relocated to Chicago. The event was held at Tocco Restaurant and 100 invited guests from the fashion community attended. Stephane worked for some of the top designers in London starting with Elisabeth Emmanuelle and moving on to Michiko Koshino, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Temperley London and Giles Deacon.
Yoeshabel Russell, Candace Doh, and Tera Pendleton were the models, modeling day-wear and ending with evening gowns throughout the event.
Stephane St. Jaymes will introduce his 2014 Spring Collection within the first quarter of the new year. His studio is located in the Bridgeport Art Center.
