The highly anticipated Chicago Show: Antiques & Art & Modern returned after a three-and-a-half-year hiatus with a chic opening event hosted by the Woman’s Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital at theMART.
Over 500 guests perused exquisite booths featuring 50 worldwide dealers of fine antiques from the ancient to 20th centuries. Attendees enjoyed cocktails from multiple bars, including a Broken Shed vodka post, and hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Limelight alongside renowned designer and honorary chair Alessandra Branca, and luxury event planner, author of Born to Party, Forced to Work and the party’s designated master of celebrations, Bronson van Wyck.
VIP ticket holders had the exclusive opportunity to shop the show alongside Branca in the hours leading up to the event, which later transformed into the Young Collectors After Party, where DJspun beats and dancing kept guests moving throughout the evening.
