Fashion Focus Chicago. The Secret Fashion Garden. Fashion Show. Second City Style Fashion Blog

September 25, 2006 • Magazine


The Historic Water Tower Park directly off Michigan Avenue, was the backdrop for The Secret Fashion Garden Fashion Show earlier today. Design students from The Illinois Institute of Art – Chicago, unveiled their interpretations of the gardens along The Mag Mile. It is also the closest thing Chicagoans will see to spring fashions this week during Fashion Focus Chicago.

The designs were part of a summer curriculum at the school where the students used such techniques as felting and fabric manipulation. To view the student’s inspirations and weekly progress, visit The Secret Fashion Garden Progress. While most of the designs were not for everyday wear, they were fresh, gutsy and different.
