Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas
Fashion Show Mall is a shopping mall located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. Fashion Show Mall is owned by the General Growth Properties Inc. With 1888151 sqft of space, this is one of the largest enclosed malls in the world. The mall has over 250 stores, 7 anchors, an elevated stage, a fashion runway and "The Cloud."
Fashion shows take place in the mall every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, The young models express their look and personality: Damien Duduaco, Justin Thomas, Robert Flynn, Mike Miller, Keith Vass and many more local models, and are free for shoppers to watch. During the Winter months, the mall has scheduled snow storms inside. Santa Claus also makes special appearances, even giving a high-energy performance on the runway with his group of elf helpers.
"The Cloud," at The Strip entrance is about 128 ft above the sidewalk and is 480 ft long. During the day, the structure provides shade for the entrance and at night it serves as a movie screen.
The mall features several high end restaurants, some accessible from private entrances and elevators so they may operate when the mall is closed.
The mall opened in 1981 with Dillard's, Bullock's, Goldwaters, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue (originally only 64000 sqft).
In 2003, Neiman Marcus expanded from 102000 sqft to 160000 sqft, Saks Fifth Avenue and Dillard's both relocated in the west end of the mall, and Macy's and Robinsons-May expanded as well. A whole west end was added to the mall, adding 500000 sqft of store space, including The Great Hall, where fashion shows are performed throughout the day. Bloomingdale's Home (first in the nation) and Nordstrom opened in the west end of the mall as well. Lord & Taylor was scheduled to open in the former spot of Dillard's, as part of the mall's east expansion, but the Lord & Taylor chain halted its national expansion plans and canceled its store there in 2003. In July 2010, Forever 21 opened in this space, featuring the largest Forever 21 retail store in the United States. Also, as part of the east expansion completed in 2003, four full-service restaurants, a 16-option food court and The Cloud were added on the front side of Fashion Show, facing Las Vegas Blvd.
Rouse, the previous owner, was purchased by General Growth Properties in 2004.
On September 9, 2006, following Federated's purchase of May Department Stores, Robinsons-May became the second Macy's store at Fashion Show. The second Macy's closed in January 2008 and is in the process of consolidating with the existing Macy's store.
