The tanking stock market and vice presidential debates did little to deter local fashion lovers from flocking to Chicago’s fourth annual fashion week, Fashion Focus Chicago, which kicked off last week to its largest crowds ever.
The week’s first all-student show featuring styles from students attending the city’s four design schools attracted 1,500 people Friday, with showgoers filling all 850 seats in the white tent at Millennium Park and standing two-people thick around the perimeter. The spillover crowd of more than 400 watched the show via a live-feed large-screen TV in the tent’s reception area.
