This weekend sees the first installment of what will presumably be an annual event, In-Fashion: The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival. Starting Friday, August 26, and running through September 8, stores and malls along the strip will feature trunk shows, celebrity appearances, and more. Get up early if you want to catch Carson Kressley at 5:30 AM outside 401 N. Michigan; Project Runway designer Mondo Guerra will be at Macy's at Water Tower Place, 835 N. Michigan, at the much more civilized hour of 5:30 PM. Click here to download a (large) PDF brochure with all of the events and deals.
If nothing's too good for your kid, head to Odile Luxury Children's Boutique, 710 N. Wabash, this Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM for a trunk show with TANE, a line of natural and organic clothing and accessories for the wee ones, featuring designer Sheree Lee. Get a 15 percent discount on the goods during the event.
On Saturday and Sunday, the Little Black Pearl, 1060 E. 47th, hosts a Wearable Art Show and Sale. Find handpainted clothing from Allohn, clothes and handcrafted leather bags from Artwear by Robbie, chapeaux from L.I.P.S. Hats, and more. Hours are 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday.
