The event’s Royal theme was complete with red carpet, horn players greeting guests as they arrived, string quartet, and even the Queen herself!

The 18th century created by Mrs. Ivanova’s costume class fit fabulously into the theme.Marie Antoinette style costumes

Model : Linda Larson. Designer : Kafi Roberts

The models doubled as mannequins-standing stone-still, only occasionally changing positions. This, combined with the whimsical dresses, and perfectly executed make-up, one would have thought he or she was looking at a masterpiece painting from the 1700’s.

The guests were clearly impressed, taking pictures and talking excitedly about the show. Overall, the theme and music paired with the Art Institute students creations gave the feel of stepping back in time. Cheers!
