Chicago’s StyleMax, the largest women’s apparel market in the Midwest, countered the questionable economy with higher-than-expected attendance this month and, at the same time, unveiled a new facet, National Prom Market Chicago.
Susan McCullough, senior vice president for apparel for Merchandise Mart Properties Inc., said she was pleased with the amount and consistency of activity at the market, noting there were still handfuls of buyers looking to do business when StyleMax, which ran from Aug. 9 to 12 at the Merchandise Mart, ended.
