Hanging out with Terry Lundgren and Tommy Hilfiger

Me and Tommy Hilfiger

The Chicago Fashion Focus (fashion week) was officially announced today during a press conference at Macy’s on State Street. The 2 main guests were: Terry Lundgren, the CEO of Macy’s and Tommy Hilfiger. The Chicago fashion industry is quite small and everyone knows everyone. It was good to catch up with other designers and the industry professionals.

I was invited as an alumna of the Chicago Fashion Incubator. I completed the program last year along with 5 other designers; here is more information about the program. It was good to see the Incubator space again, it looked great by the way, and to see my fellow awardees.
The most exciting moment came at the end, when we had a round table discussion with Terry Lundgren and Tommy Hilfiger. We asked them questions and they offered some interesting answers. The most depressing moment: Tommy talking about getting investors and having money to back your line. I wish…
