Splash celebrated one year of style Aug. 29, surrounded by 300 friends at the Underground (56 W. Illinois). Guests such as Splash columnist and “America’s Next Top Model” winner Jaslene Gonzalez, Macy’s Andrea Schwartz and Rockit Ranch Production’s Arturo Gomez, plus friends Amy Olson, Chris Dexter, Charles Hocevar and Cathie Haley, sipped Peroni and Santa Margherita prosecco and wine while jamming to tunes from DJ Megan Taylor. The party was a fashionable fête, as Macy’s Chicago Fashion Incubator designers Agnes Hamerlik, Olivia Hwang, Lagi Nadeau, Katelyn Pankoke, Shelby Steiner and Takako Yamanaka sent their Spring 2014 collections down the catwalk on Ford models, who got runway-ready with the help of Mario Tricoci stylists. Platinum Events created a high-energy ambiance and Terlato Wines International kept the drinks flowing. At the end of the night, guests walked away with goody bags provided by H20 Plus.
