Make way Chicago: we have more big things coming our way! According to Chicago Breaking Business, designer Isaac Mizrahi is in the final leg of discussions to open a boutique on Rush Street in the Gold Coast. If finalized, the boutique would be the first freestanding store for Mizrahi outside of Manhattan and only his second in the country.

After dabbling in fast fashion for mainstream retailers like Target and on QVC, Mizrahi has been making efforts to return to the high-end fashion market. Rush Street would seem the perfect setting for his comeback, having recently welcomed high-end household names like Marc Jacobs and Ted Baker to the block. The space in question for Mizrahi is the 1,800-square-foot space at 939 N. Rush St. currently occupied by Gap's high end denim boutique,1969. Gap plans to close the Chicago store at the end of January when the lease expires, according to a spokeswoman for the retail chain.

Mizrahi has been garnering re-interest in the fashion industry, since rebuilding the Liz Claiborne company as creative director, and from appearing as a critical but lovable host on Bravo's "The Fashion Show". Although reps fro Mizrahi didn't have a comment at this time on when the store may open for business, they did say they would have more details by the end of the month.
