I followed the blog from The Chicago History Museum challenge FashioNext and feel this is worthwhile to share with you. It is amazing what designers can do with upholstery/drapery fabrics.
FashioNext organized by the Chicago History museumIt’s here! The Museum’s first-ever fashion design competition–FashioNext. Eight Chicagoland designers will create couture garments inspired by Chic Chicago: Couture Treasures from the Chicago History Museum and one garment will be selected for inclusion in the exhibition.
