MILWAUKEE---Chicago may have its magnificent mile, but Milwaukee has the MKE Fashion District.

Savvy shoppers already know about it, but now there are banners denoting the area bordered by Clybourne, down Water Street and up to Milwaukee Street.

It looked picture perfect on Tuesday. The sun was shining, and mannequins lined the streets outside the various shops.

Claiborne Green, the owner of Luci Boutique, tells CBS 58 News that, "We're hoping that the other streets follow suit  in the neighborhood here  and bring more retailers, more independents and even big chain stores down to the city."

Patrice Procopio is opening a new shop she calls Third Coast Style.

"It's for Milwaukee of Milwaukee," Procopio explains. "Everything will be created here."
