About Simon Fashion Now™
The concept of Simon Fashion Now was conceived through grand opening events at properties like The Galleria in Houston, TX, The Forum Shops at Caesars in Las Vegas, NV and The Domain in Austin, TX. Through the success of these events, which became fashion focused in 2003, Simon decided to take the events national and Simon Fashion Now was introduced. The contemporary program was designed to make the runway relevant for the everyday fashionista. Spring 2011 stops included The Galleria in Houston, TX; Lenox Square in Atlanta, GA; The Domain in Austin, TX; The Fashion Mall at Keystone in Indianapolis, IN and The Westchester in White Plains, NY.
