The Second City Style staff loves nothing more than discovering new fashion finds, whether those finds are a hot accessory label or an amazing designer. So of course we were excited to check out twenty up and coming talented designers at the Dress Code Chicago Fashion Design School show last night. We were familiar with several of the students’ work though other local shows; however, it was fantastic to see a few of the best collections from each school (Illinois Institute of Art, International Academy of Design and Technology, Columbia College, and the School of the Art Institute Chicago). 

Without further ado, here is some of the fashion organized by school:

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago:
Tyler Coughlin, Libby Lane,  Mariko Golden, Elyse Kuta, Min Jeong Ko

    does anyone know who Nicole Gray is? I love her sense of style. It really brings a sense of originality which is a nice change of pace.

    Nicole – I have never seen such a dedicated, determined, talented and all-around great young lady as yourself. Of course, I guess I’m a little biased. Good job Nic! Love, mom xoxoxo
