Workshop Chicago Launches Online Boutique

Some exciting news from Annie Novotny of Frei Designs and Workshop Chicago. The beloved Pilsen neighborhood boutique founded by this pioneering sustainable fashion designer, educator, and advocate for community outreach, is launching a new online store featuring select collections and accessories also available at the shop.

Workshop-Chicago.com is the next phase for the boutique, creating an online presence to facilitate wider accessibility to the sustainable lines that workshop offers. Novotny's line, Frei Designs, is the main collection for sale on the site, along with the work of several local jewelry designers and hand-picked, vintage accessories.

Although not quite two years old, workshop has grown into something far beyond retail – a community space with engaging window displays and installations by local artists. Workshop also offers regular classes, literary readings, and social discussions. In addition to the online shop, Workshop-Chicago.com will also serve as a central online calendar of events for interactive community experiences at the brick and mortar space in the Pilsen neighborhood.
More designs will be added to Workshop-Chicago.com during the month of July. Bookmark it now for inspiring finds and news.
