Local designer Lauren Lein is one of the first interview subjects of WTTW’s new show about independent artists, Fear No Art Chicago. A longtime presence in the city who was working her craft long before Fashion Focus was a glimmer in Mayor Daley’s eye, Lein gives props to the city for its support over the last several years but offers budding designers a dose of reality: she notes the importance of good business sense and suggests that they take a job working on wardrobes for TV and movies produced in Chicago and run their own labels on the side.
