August 2, 2013
The Mall at Millenia is celebrating its 8th Annual Fashion Week in style from September 12th – September 19th. This exciting event will deliver the glamour of the international fashion world to Central Florida’s fashion forward residents. Participating retailers will feature exclusive merchandise, special promotions, and champagne receptions. Plus, four cutting edge fashion shows will illuminate the Mall’s Grand Court with unique collections to demonstrate this Fall’s most dramatic trends. TV Personality and Lifestyle Expert Lawrence Zarian will host one of these special runway presentations with unique ready-to-wear collections from world class designers.
Fashion Week kicks off with perhaps the week’s most colorful and creative moment on Friday, September 13th at 7 p.m., when students from the International Academy of Design and Technology take the runway in a surge of color, texture, movement, and music. The event will offer guests an unparalleled opportunity to witness the wild and wonderful visions of tomorrow's design professionals as they are displayed in The Mall at Millenia’s Grand Court.
On September 14th at 2pm, Fashion Week 2013 continues with two exciting events:
Neiman Marcus Presents Project Beauty, a Runway Show in Grand Court featuring cosmetic trends and beauty secrets. The show is open to the public, for limited reserved seating RSVP to 407 264-5900. Guests can shop the Neiman Marcus Beauty Event following the show, for one-on-one tips and trend advice.
Later in the day, ‘Fashion For All’, a heart-stopping fashion show hosted by Jayde Donovan takes place at 2PM. This is the moment when retailers (Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Buckle, Cache, Carmen Steffens, GUESS, Lacoste, Macy’s and White House/Black Market) introduce their looks for fall and follow up with a full day of exclusive in-store events. The excitement continues at an after-party at Blue Martini.
On Sunday, September 15th, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Fashion Week returns to the runway with a special ticketed event: the Runway To Hope Champagne Brunch & Fashion Show hosted by Lawrence Zarian, TV Personality and Lifestyle Expert.
