Fashion Focus CHICago

The fall season might be cooling things down in other cities but Chicago is heating up with Fashion Focus CHICago, the city's 10th annual Chicago Fashion Week, Oct. 4-12. The nine-day event celebrates all aspects of the Chicago fashion scene, including designers, boutiques, stylists and models at venues all over the city. There's always a good mix of free and ticketed events that feature runway shows, fashion markets, demonstrations and workshops but this year also showcases cultural attire from Latino, African and Haitian cultures as well as a collaborative art and fashion exhibit.
