In less than 24 hours, aspiring designers from six of Chicago's fashion schools are competing at the first ever Supreme Novelty Fabrics Student Design Competition and Fashion Show. The event is open to the public tomorrow, the 18th starting at 4PM. Looks will be judged by Lara Miller, Barbara Glass, Nora Del Busto, and Hector Javier. Think about this as a one-time Top Design/America's Got Talent on a micro-level. Look for our post-coverage of the rising stars and our speculations of who's going to the the next big thing.
