I always hear this statement " NOTHING ever happens in Chicago." Really??? Chicago is a very happening city, one (in my opinion) of the greatest cities in the world when it comes to entertainment and the nightlife. Our fashion industry in Chicago is no different. It is a very busy and always growing industry here! Unlike New York or L.A, Chicago is continuously growing (not beyond congested), and people in the industry are ACTUALLY NICE!! So for those of you who wonder, what's happening this Spring in the world of fashion in Chicago? I am going to list a few upcoming Fashionable events for you!!!
