With Jessica Sedgwick

October 2010 Archives


Boutique Veruca Salt, 521 N. Kingsbury, will play host to designer Shavonne Dorsey, a new face on the Chicago fashion scene, with a trunk show from noon to 2 p.m. Nov. 6.

Siobhan Apparel, the name of Dorsey's newly launched clothing company, aims to celebrate the different silhouettes of women.

Dorsey will also offer fashion consultations at the trunk show.

The opening night of Fashion Focus Chicago featured local talent at its best.

Past and present designers from the Chicago Fashion Incubator -- the city's three-year-old program that mentors up-and-coming fashion designers and gives them a workspace at Macy's -- debuted their spring 2011 collections in a fabulous runway show.

And while the collections shown Tuesday won't be available until spring (sorry for the tease), many other pieces from these local designers can be scooped up right now. Here's where to get the goods:
