Fashion in Chicago? Yes Fashion IN Chicago!

Fashion in Chicago? Yes Fashion IN Chicago!

Yes I know that I haven't written much lately; I have been hibernating like a bear. But I am back and I wanted to remind you all that we DO have fashion here in Chicago. The Midwest, yes we are not exactly known for cutting fashion, but we do have some new upcoming designers and brands! We also have extraordinary established designers are are cutting edge. One of the ways our city is building on promoting fashion is the Chicago Fashion Incubator at Macy's on State Street. Born in 2008, the Chicago Fashion Incubator was created to help aspiring local fashion designers build sustainable businesses that can compete in the global fashion industry. The designers in residence, are given technical product development, business tools and training to create innovative products and launch globally competitive businesses based in Chicago. If you want more information on this program and or if you want to apply for it (do it!) visit their website here.
