Today the city announced the dates for the Millennium Park fashion shows happening as part of the seventh annual Fashion Focus Chicago. As it did last year, Macy's kicks things off with runway event on Tuesday, October 18, featuring the 2011 designers-in-residence of the Chicago Fashion Incubator as well as selected alumni. Other shows include the culmination of Mario Tricoci's "Mario, Make Me a Model" contest, featuring clothing by local designers, on Wednesday, October 19th; Vert Couture, which focuses on eco-fashion, on Thursday, October 20; and The Art of Fashion on Friday, October 21. Missing this year is what had become one of the more popular shows, the one devoted to the work of student designers from area institutions—the schools are increasingly opting to do those on their own. Looks like smaller events such as trunk shows and seminars won't be announced until later in August.
