Hometown hero and designer Kahindo Mateene has been busy representing Chicago on the latest season of Project Runway. She's not on the show anymore, but if you liked her style, you'll want to check out Vile and Valiant this weekend. Through Saturday all of Mateene's collection, Modahnik, is marked down 25% in honor of her hard work on the show.—Shelby Blitz [Chicago Shopping]
