Chicago: Fashion Hub

Today’s New York Times featured an article on fashion in Chicago. It discussed Fashion Focus Chicago, an upcoming event (October, 2007) organized by the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs. Check out that website for lots of links to Chicago Fashion sources, local designers and more.

And keep an eye out for Fashion Week Chicago, coming up in September 2007.

And if you missed this year’s Fashion Columbia event during Manifest, be sure to put it on your calendar for May, 2008!
