Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce Breakfast
As they say, "the early bird gets the worm....", but in this case, we should say: "the early bird gets a fabulous fashion preview"! This morning at the Hilton Chicago, our current DIR and past CFI alumni designers had the opportunity to showcase their pieces on the the runway at the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce Breakfast. The event, themed "Chicago: The Great Global Marketplace", highlighted the city's business driven creativity and innovation. The keynote speaker of this event was Macy's Chairman, President and CEO: Terry Lundgren who was being honored for his dedication and innovation in the retail industry. Another attendee, our city's Mayor Rahm Emanuel, spoke on issues in the Chicagoland business arena as well. CFI is honored to be apart of such an exciting Chicago event!
