I am interested to know if there are any fashion events held anywhere in the mid-west? I would guess Chicago would be the home of such an event, but I havent been able to find anything about it, which is a little disappointing. There is so much talent in this area and not a lot of opportunity. If there are any other talented people in the mid-west that want to get their work out to the masses, let me know! Better yet, if there is anyone that can offer up any info, PLEASE, don't hesitate! Thank You.

Check out StyleMax ( they are a trade show that exhibits at the merchandise mart in Chicago a few times a year.
This is a great show to be involved with, as opposed to just a fashion show, for the mere fact that attendees must have buyer or press credentials. That means that the vast majority of people viewing your line will either be able to buy it or help you get exposure.

Also, the "official" Chicago Fashion Week is set to debut this April '08 and is sponsored by Mastercard. ( Registration costs for the show are fair compared to other fashion weeks and you may still be able to get in to the event if you hurry.

If you want to get in with more of a local crowd check out Local businesses can work with them to connect with local customers. They send email alerts on events going on in the area, from discount days at local spas to trunk shows of local designers.

And if you want to focus on advertising to the local Chicago community there are a number of local magazines that focus on fashion and luxury such as Chicago Magazine, Chicago Fashion and Chicago Social. There is lots of stuff out there, you just have to know where to look!
