CHICAGO — Concerns that the war in Iraq would keep buyers away from Chicago’s March StyleMax were unfounded, as organizers reported record-breaking attendance at the market, which ran March 22-25.
"We were very worried because of the events going on in the world that people were going to be afraid to travel," said Susan McCullough, vice president of apparel for the Merchandise Mart Properties Inc., who, in contrast, noted that first-day attendance was up 20 percent.
