Scarborough celebrates chic fashions and charity

Fall fashions will be showcased in the east end of the GTA this weekend, as Scarborough Town Centre hosts a chic event for a good cause.

The shopping centre is hosting its third annual fashion show in support of the Rouge Valley Health System Foundation on Sunday, October 23.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show will begin at 7 p.m., taking place in the mall’s Centre Court.

It will feature trendy new designs from such retailers as The Bay, M for Mendocino, ONLY and Melanie Lyne, among others. Lynn Spence, guest fashion expert from CityTv’s Cityline, will act as mistress of ceremonies for the evening.

Guests at the event will have the opportunity to win prizes, and can stick around for a post-show reception sponsored by Canyon Creek Chop House and Moxie’s Grill, featuring cocktails and snacks.

Tickets to the show are $60 or two for $100, with proceeds going towards the foundation – a registered charity that raises funds to support the purchase of leading edge medical equipment for the Rouge Valley Health System, as well as for major capital expansion projects.

This worthy event happens just once a year, fashionistas, so don’t miss it.

A shiny new shopping hub for Scarborough

Scarborough Town Centre has a new look, and it’s being unveiled this Wednesday. The major two-year, $62-million revitalization project overhauled the shopping centre from head to toe.

More than a dozen new skylights will filter natural light through mall.

Nearly every aspect of the mall has been refurbished, including its floors, ceilings, escalators and elevators, entrances, landscaping, lighting system and furniture.

The washrooms have also been improved, and now feature new vanities and mirrors, and touchless water, soap and towel dispensers.

The revamped mall also features a new, more central Customer Service Centre, as well as new digital directories throughout the mall.

I can’t say I’ve ever been to Scarborough Town Centre, but with 240 stores and two food courts, it sounds like it’s worth a visit. Making it even more worthwhile are a few new stores that are rare commodities in the Canadian market.

ONLY, for instance, is a trendy European jeans retailer that only has six locations in Canada, including its new Scarborough Town Centre location. Another new addition is Hot Topic, an American music-inspired accessory store targeted at teens, which now has three Canadian stores. Also joining the mix is Jack & Jones, a European jeans brand for men.

Stop by the mall on November 17 at 4 pm for its Grand Reveal Celebration, where you can be among the first to see its new look. You can also check out its “Planet Santa” Christmas display, which sounds like quite the production, complete with life-sized snow globes, a map of Santa’s flight around the world, and a countdown clock that ticks off the days until Christmas.
