Je vous présent the Spring issue of Chicago Fashion.
Pages 28/29: Interview with designer Soo Choi about her closet. If one must tell the story of a person through their stuff, having a subject as forthcoming and réfléchi as Soo is what you long for.
Pages 14/15: Short items on jewelry designer Temple St. Claire, perilously high heels, and the similarities between today’s runway and the styles of the 1930s.
Pages 30/31: Interview with the fabulous Graham Thompson of Optimo Hats (who recently designed the hats for Public Enemies). I had so much fun poking around his shop and seeing the weighty and timeworn hat-making machinery.
Pages 34/35: I asked five local designers to imagine looks for Michelle Obama.
