Chicago's first Fall Fashion Week kicks off today. Dubbed Fashion Focus Chicago, the week-long extravaganza features a number of events open to the public, both celebrity-minded and not. Sarah Jessica Parker and Clinton Kelly make appearances, J.Lo debuts her new lines and the whole thing wraps up with a runway show in Millennium Park, celebrating new faces and ideas in fashion. Marshall Field's has a complete listing of events, but you can also check your Slowdown for daily reminders through September 29.
