"Simon Fashion Now"

Unlike many fashion shows that preview looks that won't actually hit retail racks until months later, the "Simon Fashion Now" catwalks spotlight styles for men and women that can be immediately found in the mall's stores. (Aaron Bristol / September 28, 2012)

It's two days of get-your-fashion-freak-on with "Simon Fashion Now" at Town Center at Boca Raton.

Runway fashion shows, style shops, Design Wars, mall-wide in-store special events and even something called "Ready, Set, Style (an interactive styling competition) make up the free and open to the public entertainment scheduled for Sept. 27 and 28.

New this year will partner with Same Sky, a fair-trade initiative that offers employment to women living with HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa. Trained as artisans, Same Sky women earn 15 to 20 times the average wage to hand-crochet beautiful glass bead jewelry. 100% of all net-proceeds from the sale of Same Sky jewelry directly affect the lives of Rwanda genocide survivors.
