New York may be home to Fashion Week, but this year's lineup will include a little piece of Chicago as well. Students from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will partner with Elle magazine for the fourth annual FASHION | NEXT runway show, which will showcase looks from SAIC students.
Elle editors act as mentors to the students, who will also be featured in the magazine's October and December issues. SAIC students will join other students from prestigious art and design schools including Rhode Island School of Design, Savannah College of Art and Design and Fashion Institute of Technology. The show will run on Friday September 6.
