Want high fashion’s looks without the lofty prices? Look no further than The Fashion Mall at Keystone (located at 86th and Keystone on the north side of Indianapolis).
This month, Simon Malls brings the showmanship of New York City’s runways to the Fashion Mall for the SIMON FASHION NOW (PDF event schedule) event, April 29th and 30th. Fashion Now will be featuring runway shows that highlight the latest spring trends. All of the pieces showcased are currently available for purchase in stores, for our fashion-forward Hoosiers. So you can see the styles on the runway then walk throughout the mall to find your favorite pieces to bring home with you. Watch out, credit cards!
The next Kenneth Cole might be around the corner from Lucas Oil…A special feature of the weekend, the Design Wars event, displays the creativity of students from the Art Institute while they customize looks for local celebrities. Think Project Runway with an Indy twist.
Simon Fashion Now kicks off Friday April 29 at 6:00 p.m. with Trends & Friends — a cocktail-like event with local eateries. Runway shows begin at 12:00 on Saturday.
The spring fashion must-haves are here – SIMON FASHION NOW helps savvy and stylish shoppers narrow down the best looks, for the best price. If you want more information about the event, check out this great recap on Haute in the Heartland.
