In it's quest to become a force to reckoned with in the fashion field, Chicago has acquired a pretty good weapon in its arsenel in the form of Tommy Hilfiger. Hilfiger was named the Master Designer for The Chicago Fashion Incubator at Macy's on State Street. The program provides six emerging Chicago-based designers with resources to launch their careers in fashion. Hilfiger attended last week's Fashion Focus kickoff event, a four-day celebration that will take place October 22 - 25.
