Dreamers and designers. Style storytellers. Culinary creators. Vocal visionaries. Thompson Chicago’s Creative Spirits.
As the newest Thompson Hotels property, Thompson Chicago received a warm welcome to the Windy City from some leading tastemakers. Eight influencers who embody our passion for local art, fashion, design, music, and cuisine were hand-selected to establish Thompson Chicago’s premiere Creative Spirits program. A fashion designer, a DJ, an art curator, an award-winning chef, an interior design duo, a fashion photographer and stylist, and a green living “plant-vangelist” join forces to represent our take on Chicago: highlighting the trailblazers and icons, à la Edie Sedgwick and Steve McQueen, who continually inspire and ignite our imaginations.
From November 2013 to March 2014, each Creative Spirit helped host one of four intimate events at Thompson Chicago to welcome us to the neighborhood. From a Ping-Pong pop-up, to an art installation, design dinner and scent-infused soiree, each fête was as unique as the Creative Spirit host. We’re proud to include our Creative Spirits as an extension of the Thompson Chicago family. Earlier this year, we also held a photo shoot with each Creative Spirit and asked each of them to share their unique insights on what makes Chicago a city all their own.
As the best time of year to experience Chicago – summer! – is almost up on us, what better way to explore the Windy City than with personal city guides from Thompson Chicago’s Creative Spirits? Over the next few months, our Creative Spirits will let us in on Chicago’s hidden gems and the secrets to experiencing the Second City as an insider.
