A First Look At CFI’s 2012 Designers In Residence

Spring has us craving something new, particularly when it comes to fashion. Thankfully, the Chicago Fashion Incubator is feeding the beast by announcing its new class of Designers In Residence for 2012. This year-long residency on the business of fashion (the whole business–not just design!), begins again with six designers who demonstrate skill and potential. CFI can count among its alumni some seriously impressive local talent, including Christina Fan of C/Fan, Miriam Cecilia Carlson, and Anna Hovet. We're thrilled that the new CFI class has been announced and we're looking forward to seeing a lot of them (and their work) in 2012. Click through to see who made it into this year's class, and remember their names...you'll want to.
