Pics Galore! Preview New Looks From Your Favorite Chi-Town Designers

Last week, when tempted with the idea of seeing fresh fall fashion from Chicago designers before anyone else, we found it hard (okay, impossible) to say no. So, obviously, we raced over to check out Pops @ The Block, a fashion preview event showcasing new looks from all of your Chicago faves, like Borris Powell, Cityblue, Frill, Spare Parts, and more. Factor models showed off the designs while guests sampled munchies from the new Magnolia Bakery (OMG). Don't get too jealous though, because we brought along a camera to make sure we let our beloved readers in on the action. Click through for a sneak peek at what's next for Chicago fashion.
