FAB FABIOLA: Windy City women were so impressed by Fabiola Arias’ colorful cocktail dresses that they voted the young designer’s segment their favorite at Chicago’s Gold Coast Fashion Award show, which attracted some 1,300 people to the Hilton Chicago earlier this month. Work by the Cuban-born designer, who won the 2011 Fashion Group International Rising Star award, was shown along with that of eight other designers including Wes Gordon and Bradley Scott. Arias, who attended the event which netted more than $400,000 for Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago, joins the ranks of designer Bibhu Mohapatra and Romona Keveza, who won the Gold Coast title in 2010 and 2009, respectively.
