The History and Future of Chicago FashionBar Week
Chicago FashionBar Week is an independent partnership with Chicago’s established businesses, proudly offering a dynamic platform for independent fashion designers, producers, and models.
Our mission is to foster economic development in the realms of fashion design, merchandising, and modeling, collaborating with every facet of the industry to celebrate the boundless creativity and artistic culture within the Chicago metro area.
At Chicago FashionBar Week, we envision transforming Chicago into the fashion capital of the Midwest, providing a spotlight for emerging and established talents and elevating the city’s fashion industry to a national platform, bridging the gap between Los Angeles and New York City.
Our journey began in 2014 when we recognized the need for a dedicated fashion resource in Chicago after the discontinuation of Fashion Focus.
FashionBar swiftly established its own foundation, embarking on a strategic go-to-market strategy to deliver impeccable fashion goods across all channels of distribution.
Pioneering impactful initiatives such as FashionCon, the Fashion Marketplace, and the groundbreaking “Trans, Media, and Fashion” fashion show, FashionBar Week aims to redefine the boundaries of inclusivity and diversity in the fashion landscape.
Embrace the essence of creativity, innovation, and style as we unveil a world where fashion thrives on boundless possibilities. Fashion Week is more than an event; it’s an experience that drives the pulse of Chicago’s fashion industry. Join us on this extraordinary journey as we celebrate the spirit of artistry and collaboration, transforming Chicago into a fashion-forward metropolis.
We envision a future of boundless fashion possibilities. Let’s raise the bar and set new standards in the world of fashion!
Love the Fashion, Raise the Bar!
