The Joffrey Ballet hosted their sixth annual Couture and Cocktails on Sept. 23 at The Hudson in Chicago. The ever-popular fashion event celebrated the 10th anniversary of The Joffrey’s Women’s Board and raised more than $250,000.

True to its name, the event featured fabulous cocktails, delectable hors d’oeuvres and, of course, plenty of couture.

American fashion designer David Meister showcased 33 looks on the runway, many featuring his signature body-hugging fabrics and silhouette.

Meister was recently tapped by actress Jane Lynch to dress her for her recent Emmy Awards hosting gig.

After the show, the dance floor opened up, allowing attendees to try out their dance moves alongside professional Joffrey Dancers.
