CCCX 111 Fashion in Chicagoland: Vintage, Thrift, Fast and Cool

In this course students will explore Chicago through the dynamic lens of fashion. Each week students will be introduced to a topic with an assignment that requires them to examine different aspects of the fashion scene throughout the city. By digging deep and documenting their findings, students will work collaboratively to brainstorm, delegate tasks, and contribute to a blog or magazine inspired by Humans of New York and Bill Cunningham, with images, interviews and comments focused on fashion in Chicago. Local experts will speak on trend forecasting, blogging, design, vintage, thrifting, retail and the secondhand clothing trade.
