Chicago: Getting More Fashionable Every Day

For all those who say that the Second City is just not as fashion-forward as its east and west coast counterparts, check out this new site created by Mayor Daley's Fashion Council: the Chicago Fashion Resource. It covers local designers and boutiques and highlights interesting events. While the Mayor's previous events and initiatives have garner mixed results, this one really serves to highlight how interesting Chicago's fashion community really is.

This resource also shows how many designers are inspired by the impressive architecture and the atmosphere of the city around them.

Of course, the site also has boutique information, event listings, and shopping suggestions - and there is more to come in 2008, so be sure to check back.
If you're not in Chicago and are interesting in buying pieces from local designers, try the Second City Style Store, which carries some of these labels.
