The cross trending of furniture and fashion is being nurtured by Chicago area designers and Brentano textiles. Once again the Chicago History Museum is holding the FashionNext competition asking designers to use inspiration from the museums costume collection and create new designs using only Contract fabrics from Brentano. The 2010 competition has a wedding theme, “I Do! Chicago Ties the Knot”. Here are just a few lovely pieces that will be on loan to the Merchandise Mart for the Neocon trade show June 14-16.
This is just a sampling of what you will see at the museum. Join in the fun and go to
to vote for your favorite designer creation.
