We're still in the midst of Chicago's Fashion Focus and here's a quick thought on The Chicago Fashion Experiment from Chicago Mag. Any excuse to get Ashlee Simpson to town is a successful experiment in our book.
Fresh Faces of Fashion presented by chic and sleek GenArt goes down tonight in Millenium Park. The show is the opening event for Chicago's Fashion Focus Week and features a delicious after-party at Xchange West. Pete Wentz hosts the night of the city's freshest fashion. One thing that caught our eye was the sponsors. after the usual suspects - Acura, T-Mobile - Botox is highlighted. Botox? Really? We're not sure why, but we know on some level that's wrong.
Rock The Runway Fashion Show goes down tomorrow night. Hosted by the latest alcoholic beverage to try and buy off Chicago's affections -Black Swan Wine (at the place they're calling their loft for now) and Venus Magazine with music by Jordan Z and of course hella live fashion, Rock The Runway also features models from local music groups. Fashion Focus kick off night - always fun.
Just came across this sweet fashion/photo blog, that surely some of you have been hip to for a bit. Called the Midwasteland, Monica Dimperio just takes shots of the cool cats she sees out and about. Noticed she was at the Lolla afterparty we were at and took some hot shots there. Great idea for a blog, looking forward to more pix.
We've opened up a Cafepress store.It has all sorts of generic goods for the Indie set to sport around the city. Take a peek at hats, mugs, stickers, buttons and clothes. This isn't haute couture for sure, but trust us you'll look crush no matter what in some A/C threads.
