Chicago Fashion




Chicago is now home to the nation’s newest mall. The Fashion Outlets of Chicago opened its doors in August, bringing 530,000 square feet of hotly anticipated outlet shopping to Rosemont, IL, within minutes of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The variety of stores in the new Mall can only be described as “unreal”—some of the most prestigious names in fashion in the US. From Prada and Gucci to Tory Burch the new Mall has it all.

And it’s also worth checking out the contemporary art on display throughout the mall. Colorful pieces by artists such as Jen Stark and Cody Hudson can be found under escalators, hanging from the ceiling and over entrance ways were curated by Miami-based Arts Initiative.

If you ever wanted to just go for a “shop until you drop” trip to the US, book your flight to Chicago. The city is now the uncontested mecca for shopping—from its famed Magnificent Mile to its new and shining Fashion Outlet Mall. Let GMS put together an itinerary for your group to shop to their hearts’ content.
