ROOF on theWit (201 North State), a “Model’s Choice” hotel (Elle, 2012), is taking fashion to new heights with the return of the popular ROOF Runway Series on select Thursday evenings throughout the summer and fall. For the third consecutive year, ROOF on theWit will serve as the backdrop for Chicago’s most fashion forward crowds to see the city’s hottest emerging design stars, boutiques and designer brand favorites take to the runway for a night of fashion and fun 27 stories above the stylish streets of Chicago.

Featuring models by Factor Women Model Management, upcoming ROOF Runway shows range from the popular and modern menswear line Haberdash, to three of the city’s chic women’s boutiques, to the emerging luxury womenswear label Atelier Azza.

Additionally, guests will be able to enjoy the ROOF’s new summer menu including Duck Fat Fries, Surf and Turf Tacos, Black Bean Sliders, and a selection of brick oven flatbreads. ROOF on theWit will be featuring ROOF punch bowls meant for sharing with a group, including the Lost Room Key Punch, their cocktail on tap made of 10 Cane Rum, orchard apricot brandy, pineapple syrup and Brooklyn Charred Pineapple Bitters.
