Chicago designers showcased a daring set of collections at this year's AIDS Foundation Chicago ( AFC ) fashion show, "Make a Statement: Design for the Cure."

The annual event, intended to raise money for AFC and increase HIV awareness among young people, featured the designs of Michelle Tan, Kate Boggiano, Heidi Hess and J.Cheikh, among others. While designers like Kirk James Collection sent models down the runway in glittering gowns, Playboy dressed their male models in nothing but bow ties and underwear. More than 150 people attended the show and preceding cocktail party at River East Arts Center.

"Make a Statement: Design for the Cure" is the brainchild of Katie O'Malley ( a former Windy City Times 30 under 30 awardee ) who was honored at this year's show. Organizers estimate that the event has raised more than $80,000 since it was first held in 2006.
