The School of the Art Institute of Chicago continued to push the boundaries of art and fashion at its annual runway show benefit “The Walk” on Friday. Showcasing more than 200 original student designs, the 81st edition of the event, held at Millennium Park, also honored internationally known fashion journalist and filmmaker Diane Pernet with the prestigious “Legend of Fashion” Award.
“I’m really touched. It’s a great honor. I’m kind of speechless,” said Pernet, whose blog, “A Shaded View on Fashion,” launched in 2005. The Paris-based critic also runs “A Shaded View on Fashion Film,” her own fashion film festival.“[Blogging] now is a different approach than when I started. Now it’s more strategic. It’s like anything — you filter out what’s got value.”
