TONIGHT

It's rare that you see the words "fashion" and "Nobel Peace Prize" in the same press release, but tonight womenswear designer Marcia Patmos of Lutz & Patmos will reveal a new piece created in collaboration with Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu. A portion of the proceeds from sales will go to the Desmond Tutu Peace Centre and the Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust. It's at a private home and runs from 3 to 9 PM; call 312-375-4754 to RSVP.

Wicker Park green boutique and showroom Connect Chicago opens a pop-up shop in Lincoln Park at 2130 N. Halsted from 7 to 10.
