Chadstone Tests Its Shoppers’ Fashion Skills

Chadstone is securing its place as The Fashion Capital with its preparations for the upcoming BMW Caulfield Cup Carnival.

When ladies and gentlemen head to the races, fashion is undoubtedly topmost on most minds. For those that are confident that they have mastered spring racing style, Chadstone holds its annual Fashion Stakes. Three categories of fashion lovers can enter: Stylish Ladies 18-40, Stylish Ladies 40+ and Stylish Gentlemen.

Heats take place throughout the Caulfield Cup events. Entrants need to pre-register online and then bring their best looks to the judging. They are expected to show off stylish spring racing fashions and millinery, and they’ll be judged on their overall outfit, accessories and attention to detail, seasonal appropriateness and deportment.

At stake is $70,000 in prizes for the winners, including great holiday packages. All participants will be tempted by swag bags from the center and its retailers as well.

Do your shoppers have style all their own? Toronto’s Fairview Mall wants its shoppers to own their styles, so it’s launched Patent Your Style as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations.

During the 40 day contest, Fairview shoppers will have the chance celebrate individuality by securing the “patent” on their styles. Shoppers can visit the mall’s Patent Office to get a photo taken. Teams of shopping center staff will also be on the lookout for individuals with big-time style. The photos will be uploaded to the promotion’s microsite (which just oozes style itself).

Daily winners will be drawn to win a $40 Cadillac Fairview gift card. And on the final day, all entries will be included in a draw for a grand prize of $4000 in gift cards.

It’s all part of Fairview Mall’s celebration of 40 years of individuality – a great milestone to achieve.
