      There is a fabulous travleing exhibit of Napoleonic/Regency costumes and they are trying to decide which city to take it to next. You can check out the exhibit and vote for the city of your choice. Vote Chicago!!!
       
       
       
      From the exhibit description:
       
      Napoleon & The Empire of Fashion (1795-1815) traces the development of costumes from the sensual and extravagant Directoire period to the formal, sober clothing and behavior of the Bourbon restoration and shows how Napoleon, surprisingly, used fashion as an instrument of power.
      This exhibition displays the diverse styles worn during the day, at night and even in the court of the Emperor Napoleon. It shows the changes in clothing according to the seasons and the fundamental stages of life: marriage, maternity, birth and death.
      Painstakingly restored and cleaned, the clothes are presented almost exactly as they were when they were new so that you are able to apreciate the high quality of materials, craftsmanship and design that were employed during the birth of democratic, international fashion.
      Fashion prints from the period are compared to the costumes on display and also to trace the unavoidable path from ‘objects of desire’ to ‘fashion victim’; enlightening us, not without some touches of irony, on the roots of today’s fashion system.

          And Chicago is now only 5 votes behind front-runner New York:

          NY: 55
          Washington: 52
          London: 50
          Chicago: 50

          Next down the list has 37, so probably not going to catch up.

          I don't know how many cities they'll take this to, but just a few more votes will kick Chicago to the top of the list!
