CHICAGO FASHION WEEK | STYLE BIAS: STREET STYLE

CHICAGO FASHION WEEK | STYLE BIAS: STREET STYLE

Chicago Fashion Week's front row may not be home to Anna Wintour or Chiara Ferragni, but it is home to to local designers whose talent is undeniable.  Just two weeks ago (October 4-12), Chicago Fashion Week took place in the Loop, and designers from all around the city presented their latest lines.  

I had the opportunity to sit front row at one of the events, Style Bias: Street Style which featured designers who specialized in street wear.  During the night, I took photos of my favorite designers who showed creativity and uniqueness, and today's post is to recognize and applaud the work of these designers.

So, the next time you're in Chicago -- regardless if it's during CFW or not -- I highly suggest you check out some local Chicago boutiques to find eccentric and hip street-wear that's one-of-a-kind.
