Chicago's socialites have donned haute couture for decades. But, what exactly is haute couture, and how has it influenced fashion in the city? Listen to the first of three programs at the Chicago History Museum that explore the city's history of high fashion. This seminar series features some of the Chicago's biggest fashion icons, designers and historians who give us an in-depth look at the city's fashion scene. These talks are part of the exhibition "Chic Chicago: Couture Treasures from the Chicago History Museum."
