Chicago Sidewalk Sale Continues Today. Come Out for Chicago Fashion, Fun, And Sun!

July 22, 2009 • Events

The fashion show at the Chicago Sidewalk Sale starts at noon

The sun was shining down on Chicago yesterday for the first day of the annual Chicago Sidewalk Sale presented by Fashion Focus Chicago. Set up in Daley Plaza downtown on the corner of Washington and Dearborn, the Sidewalk Sale features Chicago-based boutiques and designers together in one fun and engaging space. The sprawling plaza is covered in tents and open air booths, easy to wind in and out of and poke around at the diverse array of goodies. The sale offers apparel from local designers such as by Blake Standard, Soledad Designs, Kate Jacobsen Studios, EclecticaVica, and Peachy Tan. The jewelry selection is just as extensive including the well known names like Dollybird, Rebecca Zemans Designs, Objets d'Envy, VZuniga, and Kara Hertz. There is even a handful of handbag collections from 1154 Lill Studio, Pretty Afrika, and House of Sole. To gear up Chicago for its own version of fashion week, Fashion Focus has even arranged a runway show at noon (great lunch break idea!) to showcase several of the participating designers. Today should be another beautiful summer day, perfect for strolling through the Chicago Sidewalk Sale and discovering some of the city's best boutiques and designers!
