On Thursday, May 17th, Intermix opened to a huge Chicago welcome with over 280 people in attendance.

Chicago Fashion Foundation co-sponsored the Grand Opening of the New York outpost women's boutique in their Gold Coast location. Invited guests were treated to appetizers and drinks while browsing the fashion forward styles that Intermix is so known for in the retail industry. The theme for the party was "Picture Yourself in Intermix."

The company hired a photographer that took pictures of guests and projected their images on the walls. The store is sure to be a huge hit in the Gold Coast!
