We’re going strong. We had some big ideas this year and we’ve stuck with the self-improvement! STYLEMAX is ever-evolving to create an elevated experience, bringing you an expanded but refined selection. In between browsing, you’ll find more things to see and engage with than ever.


Launched in March 2000, this is the 18th year for STYLEMAX. Four times per year, the show hosts an extensive selection of brands from various categories such as contemporary, premium denim, bridge, footwear, active wear, accessories & more! The show continues to grow with the expansion of Life+Style...all things gift and decorative accessories. 


With hotels starting at just $169/ night, there has never been a better time to experience everything Chicago & theMart have to offer.


As always, STYLEMAX is offering discounted parking, complimentary lunch, coffee, cocktail parties, informative seminars, informal modeling, buyer giveaways and much more! 



As part of theMART’s constant effort to improve our tenants and guests experience we are currently pursuing fitwel® building certification and are working with tenants on WELL™ certifications within their spaces. The fitwel and WELL standards are revolutionizing the way people think about buildings. It explores how design, operations and behaviors within the places where we live, work, learn and play can be optimized to advance human health and well-being in the environment.

While there will be several subtle changes around the building, one significant change will be that the property will become 100% “No Smoking”, both inside and outside.  Effective June 1, 2018 smoking on the exterior private property of theMART will be banned.  This includes, but is not limited to, South Drive, North Drive, Orleans and Wells sidewalks.  Smoking is not enforced on City of Chicago property unless otherwise posted.  We ask you to advise staff that if they smoke, they must proceed to an off property location.
