ChicagoMOD – Chicago’s new luxury glossy lifestyle publication – officially launched last week with a glittery event at the industrial chic venue, Morgan Manufacturing.
Cover star, Taylor Kinney of Chicago Fire, warmed up the red carpet, which welcomed the stylish heels of Chicago trend-setters and influencers. For the event, ChicagoMOD teamed up with the 100 Club of Chicago, which supports the families of fallen forest responders, and an exciting silent auction helped support the charity.
Guests were given a sneak peek at the world featured in the pages of the magazine: Entertaining Company fashioned a feast for a King, while Caesarstone provided a deluxe champagne and wine bar. Jack Daniels hosted tastings and a branded Virtual Reality experience for guests and Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams furnished a lounge for VIP guests. Cars were also on display from Fletcher Jones and Aston Martin of Chicago. A luxe silent auction was held, featuring giveaways like a three-night stay in Sorrento and Lake Como, Italy, as well as signed sports memorabilia from the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Blackhawks and modern art. Amongst the festivities was a photo booth from Big Hugs, a stunning performance from Methos Aerial aerialists, violinists, and a DJ.
Flipping through the pages of ChicagoMOD you’ll find the latest trends and luxury finds in Chicago and beyond, which translated so impeccably to the launch celebration. Congratulations and a warm welcome to this exciting new Chicago publication!
A big thank you to the sponsors that made this launch a success: Aston Martin of Chicago, Bal Harbour, Caesarstone, David Yurman, Finlandia Vodka, Fletcher Jones, Herradura Tequila, Jack Daniels, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Steadfast, Stolen Rum and The Peninsula Chicago.
