It's been quite the awards season around here, with stiff competition in categories ranging from Chicago's best men's store to our high-and-low search for what's "so hot right now." We'll officially announce the winners of these categories—and spill the beans on the winners for best local beauty store, fashion event, and more—on Thursday October 10. (We'll also host a bash in NYC that night to fete all the winners.) In the meantime, take a quick minute to refresh yourself on all the nominees, and may the-best-and-brightest-in-retail-and-fashion win.
