[ Chicago - Fashion ] Imagine a world without the shirt dress; the classic choice for hiding that ‘I had a big lunch’ belly. Imagine a summer without breezy, floaty skirts.

Whether you’re a fashionista or are more comfortable chilling out in your jammies, come at the Alliance Française de Chicago to hear Gillion Carrara tell the story behind Hubert de Givenchy, who put Paris at the top of the fashion world in the 1950s – and set the first relationship between fashion and film thanks to his 40-year long collaboration with Audrey Hepburn.
