On July 27th and 28th Runwayaddicts will host Museum of Streetwear, a two day exhibition in East Garfield Park created to highlight the works of designers involved with Streetwear culture. For two days the museum will display brands, host workshops, panel discussions, and a pop-up shop. A variety of subcultures and iconic moments in streetwear will be explored that weekend. We’re doing this with the hopes of connecting Chicago’s fashion community to create more opportunities for collaboration and economic growth.
MOS is more than just a pop up exhibit, it brings together the fashion community of Chicago by giving the opportunity to connect with other like minded creatives (that’s us!) to have their work exclusively featured. Streetwear design will always be relevant and has made a tremendous impact on the next generation of Chicago’s fashion design community. By displaying Chicago based brands and designers in an interactive and engaging way, MOS creates a community within our city for creatives to flourish. This weekend is created for the now and what’s coming next.
