It's back to school time, which also means the annual freshening up of your kids' wardrobes. NorthPark Center is here to show you what's in and on trend, so no one ends up wearing anything that's — gasp — so last year.
As an extra helping hand, NorthPark Center will be hosting the ABCs of Back-to-School Style Presentation on Saturday, August 20 from 10:30 am to 4 pm. This all-day extravaganza will include two presentations from Bookmarks, a fall fashion presentation at 11:30 with commentary from noted local bloggers, a performance from Power House of Dance, and the chance for kids to create their own masterpieces with ArtRocks!.
