Following these developments and the gradual stabilization of the country, the market stand designers moved from the streets to share, multi-brand boutiques, and then on to their own stores. Many of the designers that started out on sidewalk corners now occupy chic boutiques that easily compete with their European counterparts.

Today, Buenos Aires, and Argentina as a whole, are blossoming. The valorization of local production by foreigners has served to bolster national confidence, so that Argentines might stop looking towards Europe for inspiration and find it within, and, in the process, attract the gaze of the very countries it has traditionally sought to emulate.  Buenos Aires is now a mecca of design, as a regenerating economy has allowed for the restoration of previously crumbling areas of the old city and decaying warehouses along the river.
