The Fashion Show Mall is a chic shopping center in Sin City that features high-end fashion shows and offers only top-name brands. It is, without a doubt, one of the top 6 best shopping malls in Las Vegas. Besides the over 250 stores, there is also a wide range of entertainment and food options.
Regular events take place in the Mall, including weekly fashion shows and art exhibits.
History of Fashion Show Mall
The Fashion Show Mall opened its doors in 1981. Its first stores were Saks Fifth Avenue, Bullock’s, Goldwater’s, Neiman Marcus, and Diamond’s. Over the years, the stores changed and evolved as the building grew. The size of the mall is now 1.9 million square feet. Impressive, right?
Fashion Show Mall has seen its fair share of retail stores shutter over the years. But the vacancies have always been filled quickly. In this era, malls are actually viewed as endangered because of the popularity of online shopping. But the Fashion Show Mall continues to thrive.
Why You Must Visit Fashion Show Mall
The highlight of Fashion Show Mall is actually the weekends because actual fashion shows take place here. They occur at the atrium of the Mall on a retractable runway where models show off the season’s latest chic brands and outfits. Past entertainment includes family-friendly attractions like an outdoor drive-in theater set up in the car park.
But the best thing about the mall is that it’s a one-stop shop for everything. Need a new designer jacket or coat? Looking for a gift for a discerning friend? You could spend the entire day here (and all your money).
The Mall is also fully accessible for people with disabilities. There are manual wheelchairs that are available at the lower level. Unfortunately, electric wheelchairs are not available for rent. I think they should do something about this. There’s free parking in the underground parking deck and in 2 multi-level car parks. If you prefer valet parking, it’s available at three different locations. There’s a family bathroom on the lower level near Macy’s. The Mall is family-friendly, and you can go there with your children, but there’s no play area. So, you must keep that in mind when you come with your munchkins.
