2.23.15 Chicago Styled: Fashioning the Magnificent Mile

 

Thank you to all who attended the Chicago Styled tour at the Chicago History Museum! We had the pleasure of touring with the museum's Costume Curator, Petra Slinkard. She taught us about designer fashions that follow the development of Michigan Avenue into one of the most renowned upscale retail destinations.  The garments, which had exquisite fabrications and jeweled ornamentation, were extremely breathtaking and enjoyed by all.
