Last week, as part of a kick off to the Saskatoon Fashion and Design Festival (SFDF) the Midtown Plaza hosted our first annual IN FASHION event. And now, after the tulle and the dust has settled we have time and the energy to look and back and see how it was done.

Since our slogan is Everyday Fashion First, it is only suitable for the Midtown to not only kick off the events of the SFDF weekend, but also to present to our customers, the ways in which they too can look, and feel fashion first, everyday. That's what is at the heart of our IN FASHION event. More than a fashion show, our event wanted to draw in our guests and shoppers, and present to them the ways in which  to stay in style this season (and also to pamper them with products, swag bags, and delicious treats). By holding noon hour and an after-work session we were able to present to the busy shopping crowd the best in spring/summer 2013 fashion, hair, and make-up trends.

The production of an event like this takes week of planing and organizing, that all culminated in a 24 hour period. The amazing team at SFDF had everything go off with out a hitch. The stage and production equipment was delivered after the mall had closed, and in quick succession our backdrop was assembled and a quick run through of the next day's events.

Almost there, but not quite...
