Last year, Macy’s in Chicago consigned a bevy of Chicago designer’s apparel, jewelry, handbags, etc. This year Macy’s North announces the purchasing of 19 collections by Chicago-based fashion designers to debut and
be sold at Macy’s on State Street, launching October 9 (in conjunction with Chicago’s Fashion Week –
Fashion
Focus Chicago 2007
). They should have done this in the first place, but at least they are doing so now. Macy’s will also invite 30 more designers to showcase their fashion
collections in a series of trunk shows at the State Street store this
fall.
