The runway will become the ‘fun-way’ as models don haute couture styles created by some of Chicago’s most innovative fashion designers, inspired by hot toy and game brands, many of which will be featured at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair - the nation’s largest public toy and game event. Dubbed playCHIC, the concept fashion show will showcase the creativity and style of the Chicago fashion industry, paired with the playfulness of toy and game designers, and will be the first in a week’s worth of events that will culminate with the 10th anniversary Chicago Toy & Game Fair.

“The Chicago Toy & Game Week, lead by industry luminary Mary Couzin continues to push innovation boundaries and inspire the public with yet another historic event,” said Anna Van Slee, The playCHIC Fashion Show Director. “Ours is the first haute couture runway to feature a variety of new and iconic kids’ brands interpreted by different designers. Perhaps more than any other industry, the fashion business-at its core-is closely related to play, to playing ’dress up.’”
“When you consider that kids have been dressing up toys and dolls for pretty much all of human civilization, you realize that there are a lot of inherent synergies between fashion and play,” said Mary Couzin, founder and CEO of the Chicago Toy & Game Group. “The fashion designers are really excited to play with some new looks based on popular toys and games, and the toy and game companies are anxious to see how their brands inspire other creative people.”
