PRESENTING … THE REPS


WWD CONTINUES ITS SERIES HIGHLIGHTING PROMINENT REPS AT THE CHICAGO APPAREL CENTER.



Lee Roski Showroom: 12-102 Principal: Lee Roski


Lines: Faith, Leslie Fay Evenings, Nahdree, Nah Nah, Nicole Studio, Nipon Night, Staples, Surya, UGR


“Value is a key idea. We try to find the lines that know how to follow the trends and produce the product at the right price.”


— Lee Roski



Nancy Milgrim Showroom: 1347 Principal: Nancy Milgrim


Lines: Actionwear, Grand Avenue, Lynn Ritchie, L. Bates, Tina Hagen, Votre Nom


“We’re a full service showroom with a hands-on approach. As the fourth generation in a retail family, I understand that, just as retailers have to give service to their customers, as a rep we have to give customer service to our stores.”


— Nancy Milgrim



Boe Chmil


Showroom: 1340 Principal: Boe Chmil


Lines: Bettina Riedel, Johnny Heaven, Michael Simon, Platinum, Silver Connection, Studio 1


“I try not to duplicate any one manufacturer. We offer the customer one-stop shopping — a harmonious mix of sportswear, knitwear and dresses. There isn’t one price point that dictates — it should be more of a look than a price point.”


— Boe Chmil



Steven B. Jacobson Showroom: 13-110 Principal: Steve Jacobson


Lines: Anne Pederson, Bossanova, Emil Rutenberg, Fitigues, Fitigues Kids, Kavi, Kirsten Scarcelli, Jan Wilson, Mary Beth Collection, Micheline Boucher, Notables


“The lines I sell don’t wear my customers — my customers wear the clothes. You can’t target a price point — people are trying to buy quality and a look for a little less expensive price.”


— Steve Jacobson
