Columbia College's fashion department has partnered with the Willis Tower for an exhibition dubbed "Enduring Style: Practice Makes Perfect." Now through September 5, the building's ground floor will showcase 38 looks stitched up by current and former Columbia students; the exhibit also provides a peek inside the design process. Fourteen large-scale fashion photographs, snapped by photography students, complement the apparel. The opening-night bash for the exhibition is tomorrow at 6 p.m.; R.S.V.P. here. [Racked Inbox]
