The first Monday in August has been the summer’s day to salute fabulous fashion, thanks to the Service Club of Chicago. Begun years ago as a “Day in the Country,” it was originally held in member’s homes. Leaders of this year’s show, entitled “Cinema Paradiso,” are projecting revenues of over $215,000, a new record for the event.
