Fashion Among the Flowers in My Favorite Citycomments (4) August 18th, 2008
One of the many cool things to see when you visit Chicago in the summer – among all the wonderful things about that city – are the huge gardens along Michigan Avenue. And for the past two years, embedded in many of the glorious gardens, are fashionable mannequins “dressed” by students from the International Academy of Design and Technology and the Illinois Institute of Art. The designs are so creative, using materials that withstand the elements. It’s like an episode of Project Runway right there on the Magnificent Mile to enjoy and study up close. I think they’re up for another month or so. If you’re a “fashionista,” and in the area – check them out.
