The Chi season 1 TV costumes on display...

Lena Thwaite's The Chi explores life in a neighbourhood on the South Side of Chicago and how a murder of a young boy affects the predominantly black and poor community living there. These costumes from the show are worn by Sonja Sohn as 'Laverne Johnson' a mother of two with a drinking problem, Barton Fitzpatrick as drug dealer and gang leader 'Reg' and Jacob Latimore as sneaker-obsessed teen and young father 'Emmett Washington'.
