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:
