Fashion: Call it Art THIS WEEKEND!!


This is VERY exciting, since these are some of the most creative, skilled, and tasteful designers in town:


"Gallery19 will be the vehicle for inventive modern clothing, jewelry and objects by three Chicago-based designers, Friday through Sunday, May 19th-21st!

The Gallery is honored to host works by Artists Gillion Carrara, Andrea Reynders and Anna Brown. Carrara, director of SAIC’s Fashion Resource Center, uses techniques acquired from around the world to create refined glass rings, hard wood cuffs and bone letter openers. Reynders, the Director of the Chicago Fashion Incubator, focuses her clothing design on simplicity, volume and texture. This devises an unrestricted fluidity and depth to each of her creations. Brown, a designer-in-residence at the Chicago Fashion Incubator, makes garments with the independent woman in mind. Each of the ethically manufactured statement pieces tell her story.

Join us on Friday, May 19th from 6-9pm for a reception and an introduction to the designers’ newest clothing and jewelry lines for 2017. All three designers will take part in an insightful panel discussion. Gallery19 Co-Owner Dietrich Klevorn will moderate and entice the designers to speak about the current and future state of fashion.

Stop by for a viewing during our gallery hours on Saturday, May 20th from Noon-6pm. We encourage you to leisurely look through and try on the designers’ best works. Carrara, Reynders and Brown will be on hand to answer any questions about their pieces and how best to wear them.

Listen, shop and get inspired on Sunday, May 21st"
