In an unprecedented show of unity, designer chains have set up shop in Pittsburgh, linking our region as a burgeoning style mecca with the latest trends in the apparel industry. Within that mix of national trend-setting retailers, we include local high-end chains Larrimor's and Roberta Weissburg Leathers (with two locations each and counting), which offer designer labels like Max Mara, Burberry and Andrew Marc to name a few.
