Tomorrow, April 23rd will be the last day of the Chicago Fashion Incubator Launch Shop. This year's featured designers, like Agga B, and Nonnie Threads will be packing up their merchandise and taking it back to their studios throughout Chicago. What will become of the empty space at The 900 Shops? The former Jessica McClintock & Yolanda locations will remain empty until the next seasonal store jumps in. CFI hopes to claim the space again for spring 2012. -Shelby Steiner [Racked Inbox]
