International Locations


We are so thrilled to be part of a group of people that not only thrive to empower women and girls together to help them reach their goals but also help build brick and mortar stores to bring communities together. Chipman Design has been partnering with Athleta since the opening of their first store here in Chicago in 2011 and are very excited to keep growing our relation and partnership.
