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.

New York Fashion Week is on and many Chicagoans are in the Big Apple attending runway shows and taking note of the latest trends. I caught up with some of my favorite and most stylish locals to see what items help them endure the chaos. Then, I included where in Chicago you can find these essentials. Not only will they help you survive Fashion Week, but they will also get you through any week in this concrete jungle we call Chi-Town.
