- A look from last year's Fashion Focus
The mayor's office has been ominously quiet about the fate of the annual week-long fashion celebration Fashion Focus Chicago since Melissa Gamble stepped down in May
from her post as the head of Daley's Fashion Advisory Council. The Fashion Focus Twitter feed
went silent and the summer came and went without the usual splashy press conference about the event. However, it's on: last week a press release
announced it will take place October 18 through 24 in Millennium Park, but offered few other details, other than a promise to release a full schedule soon.
