  • CHICAGO HAT DESIGNER TONYA GROSS SELECTED FOR ONLINE RETAILER ZAPPOS.COM 2013 EMERGING DESIGNER PROGRAM

    Tonya Gross Millinery to Vend Hat Collection on Zappos.com Beginning March 2013

    Chicago, IL, December 3, 2012: Chicago-based head wear designer Tonya Gross of Tonya Gross Millinery has been selected by online retailer Zappos for its 2013 Zappos Emerging Designer Program. The Tonya Gross Millinery SS 2013 CAPSule Collection for Zappos will include casual head wear for men and women, couture bridal, and special event hats for Easter and the Kentucky Derby. The collection will be prominently featured and sold exclusively on the Zappos.com site beginning March 2013.

    Tonya Gross says, “I am thrilled for the opportunity to partner with such a prominent online retailer like Zappos, and so honored by this distinction. As a fledgling designer, it is the “big break” for which I have worked so hard for many years. The opportunity to present my line of handmade hats to such an esteemed buying team, and for my product to be seen by millions of Zappos’ customers, is a boon for my hat business and welcomed attention for the US hat industry. This is a unique venture in that I will produce handmade hats for a large volume online retailer that are locally produced and will employ a talented pool of resources drawn from the Chicago fashion industry; I am really proud of this.”

    From the Zappos Emerging Designer site: "Trend Manager Natasha Pace knows what it can mean to a struggling designer to sell their designs on Zappos.com: ‘We recognize that there is so much undiscovered talent that exists in the fashion industry and we really want to be able to help designers that are at the beginning stages of getting their collection off the ground, to present their designs on a national level,’ said Pace. ‘To me, that’s what makes this program so unique and exciting—we’re helping to make dreams come true.’”

    Tonya Gross is an award-winning head wear designer based in Chicago, most recently featured on Bravotv’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey and ‘Crowns’ at the Goodman Theatre Chicago, and in collections for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for Pamella Roland and Plutocracy. Tonya Gross Millinery launched her business in 2007, and produces seasonal couture collections for bridal, special event, and evening wear, and casual headwear for men and women.

    Zappos.com is a leading destination in online apparel and footwear sales. Zappos initiated the Emerging Designer Program in early 2012. The program was developed internally by Zappos employees for up-and-coming fashion designers.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    LES DAMES D’ESCOFFIER INTERNATIONAL
    CHICAGO CHAPTER
    www.lesdameschicago.org

    CONTACT: Amelia Levin
    Volunteer Media Coordinator
    (312) 320-9459
    amelia@amelialevin.com



    LES DAMES HOST FASHION PLATES FUNDRAISER
    SHOWCASING LOCAL FOOD AND FASHION

    An evening with Chicago’s top chefs and fashion designers in a runway show and dinner gala.
    CHICAGO – Chicago has two glamour camps - the foodie “in” crowd and the style conscious fashion scene. Every so often these worlds intertwine, and they’ll get that chance at Fashion Plates, a gala and runway show hosted by the Chicago Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier International, on May 10, 2010 at the Chicago Cultural Center..

    In a “Top Chef” meets “Project Runway” event, Fashion Plates brings together six of the city’s most notable chefs with six top, local designers to create coordinating dishes and outfits based on fashion and food words drawn earlier out of a hat. Master Sommelier Alpana Singh of Lettuce Entertain You and host of WTTW’s Check Please! will emcee the event.

    On the runway, chef and designer duos will showcase their collaborative efforts while guests get the chance to try the dishes at a seated dinner. Participating chefs include Dames Carrie Nahabedian of Naha and Shelley Young of the Chopping Block as well as Rick Gresh of David Burke’s Primehouse, Martial Noguier of Café des Architectes, Takashi Yagahashi of Takashi, and Randy Zweiban of Province, coupled with six outstanding Chicago designers—Pierre Colorado of Blake Standard, 5p1t designers Richard Morse and Daryl Sneed, Abigail Glaum-Lathbury, Tonya Gross, Michelle Tan, and Nora del Busto.

    Proceeds from the dinner gala will go toward funding Les Dames-sponsored culinary school scholarships for outstanding women in the area. Part of the proceeds will also go toward Green Tables, a Les Dames Chicago Chapter initiative with the McCormick Boys & Girls club to teach children about healthy cooking and gardening.

    “This is a very exciting event for Les Dames and everyone else,” said Nahabedian. “I am looking forward to working with Tonya to come up with a great dish and outfit that fits our two words, and to help raise money for a great cause.”

    Zweiban showed similar enthusiasm for the event and collaboration process. “This event certainly takes everything out of the box,” said Zweiban, who is paired with Sneed and Morse. “When we looked at the colors and design of Province and at the fashion designers’ style, both are very tailored and sleek and there are a lot of similarities, so it will be interesting to see how that transforms into a complimentary dish and an outfit.”

    Past recipients of the Les Dames Culinary Scholarship include JoAnn Relf, who now heads up the City of Chicago’s Culinary Concieges and World Kitchen programs, as well as Gail Mitchell, manager of the bake shop at Washburne’s Sikia Restaurant and Violeta Morales, Washburne Catering Manager.

    “Working with Les Dames really opened my eyes – I didn’t realize there were so many women in the food industry that were top entrepreneurs and business leaders, and many have become my mentors,” said Relf, who used the scholarship to fund culinary studies at Washburne Culinary Institute.

    Cocktails and Dinner
    The Fashion Plates event kicks off with a cocktail hour featuring creations by Master Mixologist Adam Seger of Nacional 27, and passed hors d’oeuvres prepared by culinary students from CHIC, Kendall College, Robert Morris College and Washburne Culinary Institute.

    Guests will also have the chance to peruse four table tops styled after Paris, Milan, New York and Chicago with china, crystal, linens, and centerpieces-all available for raffle.

    When dinner service begins, guests will take their seats at tables for ten under the spectacular Tiffany dome in the Cultural Center’s Preston Bradley Hall. To start off, they’ll enjoy an amuse bouche prepared by the three scholarship winners.

    The Runway Show
    Let the show begin! The first three groups of fashion designers and chefs will make their way down the catwalk showcasing their outfit on live models as guests get to taste scaled down versions of their dishes. As an example, one pair chose the words tomato and tassel at random, while another pair plucked the words cinnamon and circular from a hat.

    After a short break, the second group of three chef-designer duos will showcase their work on the runway as guests enjoy a second round of dishes.

    Preparation for the event has allowed them the opportunity to branch out of their comfort zone into new forms of creativity in a truly collaborative partnership. In fact, Fig Media will shoot videos of the partnerships at work in their studio and play the footage in between runway shows.

    Dessert Dash
    Earlier in the evening, guests perused tables showcasing desserts created by leading pastry chefs in the city with the opportunity to bid on what they wanted to taste through a silent auction. During Dessert Dash, pastry queen Gale Gand will announce tables with the most bids and open final bidding up for a live auction.

    Extravagent treats from Patty Rothman’s MORE Cupcakes as well as from Dames Dana Benigno and Tara Lane of Sweet Girls, Pamela Fitzpatrick and Melina Kelson will be available for auction; proceeds will also go toward culinary school scholarships and Green Tables.
