We promised we'd bring you highlights of Fashion Focus, Chicago's Fashion Week, so bust out your day planner: tomorrow night's event looks like a goodie. NEXT Fashion Chicago lives up to its name by showcasing goods from promising, up-and-coming, local designers. We took a peep at some of their stuff, and let us tell you: it's good.
Starting at 6 p.m. at the chandelier-decked Germania Place, the event will feature designers including Sarah Church, St. Frimpong, and Elena Bobysheva (whose stellar work is pictured above.) NBC 5 anchors Daniella Guzman and Alicia Roman are hosts, and eDrop-Off's Corri McFadden will present a special award. There will also be a designer boutique on site, an after-party, and—rest assured—plenty of cocktails. Tickets are still available here.
