Calling all fashion lovers, bloggers, street style extraordinaires!!
Fashion Week starting is starting soon, and now you can join in the fun with Simon Fashion Now presented by Cadillac at The Houston Galleria. Starting Thursday Sept 5, there will be a private fashion show which can be viewed from the upper levels around the Ice Skating Rink. The big Trends & Friends event will be on Friday September 6. Be treated to a night of fashion shows featuring designs from stores like French Connection, Juicy Couture, and so much more. Spend time with fellow fashion aficionados, while showing off your own personal style. Enjoy light bites, pop-up booths, and of course shopping to keep you entertained between watching models stomp the runway in the latest fall trends. Fashion shows begin at 5:30pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm.
Special events include Design Wars which is a Project Runway-esque design competition featuring student teams from the Art Institute happening at 6pm. Trust me it's not to be missed. And at 7 p.m., don’t miss out on Ready, Set, Style!, an interactive styling competition. Participants will compete for a chance to win the season's hottest accessory - a Simon American Express gift card!
Remember this is a free event, so invite your friends for a fashionable night out, but be sure to arrive early as seating for the runway is first come first serve and did I forget to mention that the first 300 to register there will get a swag bag? Oh yes. so arrive fashionably not so late, and share the event on twitter and instagram by hash-tagging #SFNGalleria @HoustonGalleria
“Simon Fashion Now exposes the hottest, most up-to-date fall trends on the runway to our shoppers so they can find their own style and have the courage to stick to it,” said Jacqué Ellis, vice president of corporate special events at Simon. “At each Simon Fashion Now stop, we take pride in extending fashion beyond the runway and offering a stylish twist to our guests.
