Simon Property Group is once again playing host to Indianapolis Fashion’s Night Out events on Thursday, September 6, celebrating the style of the city! This will mark the second annual Fashion’s Night Out at The Fashion Mall. Circle Centre will host the event for the first time this year.
Fashion’s Night Out is an unprecedented global initiative started in 2009 by American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping. Since then the event has gone global, expanding to over 100 cities across the U.S. and globally into 15 countries.
Both The Fashion Mall and Circle Centre Mall will offer an evening of fun, fashion, style and pampering for men and women.
Circle Centre has teamed up with Pattern, Indianapolis’ leading fashion organization, and Social Club 19, a local men’s fashion blog, to host a special event in the Artsgarden from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Attendees will be able to interact with local designers and style bloggers, see hair and makeup demos, observe a live fashion shoot, get styling tips and be photographed on a special Fashion’s Night Out backdrop. Local fashion organizations and companies will also be on hand to teach attendees about Indianapolis’ emerging fashion industry and how they can become involved.
In addition, vendors throughout Circle Centre will offer shoppers unique experiences. Shoppers can register to win a $500 American Express Simon Gift Card, watch hair styling demonstrations by Trade Secret, and sample treats from Godiva, Auntie Anne’s Pretzels and California Pizza Kitchen. Circle Centre retailers will also be celebrating Fashion’s Night Out, offering special promotions that evening. Participating retailers include:
