Chicago is hosting a week long event called Fashion Focus 2011 starting today and going thru Sunday. It’s the event’s 7th year here in Chicago, and it celebrates Chicago’s thriving fashion industry.
Unfortunately, because I work in the ‘burbs during the week, it looks like I won’t get a chance to go to any of the events, though I’m going to see what I can do about attending something on the weekend (Sunday is my only free day though). If you’re in the city and interested in fashion, there’s plenty going on, from fashion shows to parties, shopping events, and trunk shows. There are even some great-sounding education events!
The Grow Here Workshop sounds like it’d be fantastic to attend. Again, I’ve got something going on that day (of course) and can’t attend, but man, talk about a great chance to learn about the fashion industry, get some tips, and network with some awesome people! If anyone goes, I’d love to be able to take a peek at your notes!
Anyway, you can check it all out here: Fashion Focus 2011
