Thanks for stopping by ShopWalk! In 2007, Danielle Lutz,a native Chicagoan, avid traveler, and shopping addict, developed ShopWalk — Guided neighborhood tours to Chicago’s best boutiques
From her first trip to the French Riviera’s outdoor markets at age five, to an honor-roll student skipping gym class to go shopping, to her years working for mall developers, Danielle has always been inspired by art, fashion, people and traveling.
After University, Danielle began a career working for Chicago advertising and marketing agencies where she spent most of her paychecks filling up her closet. She then moved on to one of the world’s largest mall developers headquartered in Chicago, where she traveled across the country —always including some personal time to explore the areas' unique hangouts and fashion-forward boutiques.
The mission was to bring something unique home, but the obstacles were many! Despite scouring through travel guides and fashion magazines and trying to come across locals “in-the-know,” finding the cool boutiques was hit-or-miss.
After so many frequent flyer miles, Danielle decided to plant herself back in her Chicago home where she developed ShopWalk, insider guided tours to all the must-see boutiques and neighborhoods in Chicago.
As clients wait by the mirror for Danielle’s approval, she smiles, recognizing the need for candid advice on what looks great, how to create complete looks, and what to leave behind.
Today, ShopWalk is a full-service image consulting company with a team of experts providing wardrobe styling, beauty and health consultations, personal shopping, corporate training, and self-branding.
