Fashion Week Daily
Chicago, IL. (June 6, 2008)— Ivanka Trump dazzled the crowd last night during a private cocktail reception hosted by Michigan Avenue magazine at the new Trump Hotel and Tower. With the sixteenth floor space filled with Chicago elite, Trump talked about her excitement for the launch of Michigan Avenue magazine, her love of Chicago and how fantastic it was to finally be in the recently completed hotel.
Introduced as "The One and Only Trump" by Niche Media's CEO Jason Binn, Ivanka joked that she thought Binn was introducing her father with a welcome like that. "When Jason called me to celebrate the launch of Michigan Avenue magazine, I was thrilled to be here," Trump continued. "For the past year I have been schlepping around in construction boots and a hard hat, and now that the hotel is done my day is filled with spa treatments, and lunch and dinner at Sixteen. This is all due diligence!"
Ivanka went on to refer to the Michigan Avenue staff as a "team of genius" stating that the magazine will become Chicago's go-to publication for cutting-edge fashion, celebrity, social and lifestyle coverage. Michigan Avenue magazine will be displayed in the guest rooms at Trump Hotel and Tower.
Guests of the party including Christie Hefner of Playboy Magazine, Publishing magnates Linda Johnson Rice and Shawn Donnelly, event co-host Neal Zucker, and fashion designer, Maria Pinto sipped on champagne and signature cocktails, nibbled on Asian and Italian fare and chatted the night away with Michigan Avenue's Executive Editor Susanna Homan, and Publisher Dan Uslan.
