Fashion Show Mall is a shopping mall located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, and is owned by General Growth Properties Inc., previously The Rouse Company. The mall spans 1,888,151 sq ft (175,415.0 m2) of space, with more than 250 stores and seven anchors, and hosts weekend fashion shows on a retractable runway with the mall’s central atrium.

The Fashion Show Mall opened on February 14, 1981, anchored by Diamond’s, Bullock’s, Goldwaters, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Diamond’s was converted to a Dillard’s store in 1986, Goldwaters became a May Company in 1989 and then a Robinsons-May in 1993, while Bullock’s was converted to Macy’s in 1996.

In 2004, a major expansion of the mall was completed. 200,000 square feet of retail space was built, extending out of the backside of the mall between Robinsons-May and Macy’s. Dillard’s and Saks Fifth Avenue moved to new, larger locations in this new wing, alongside a Bloomingdale’s Home store and Nordstrom. Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, and Robinsons-May expanded their stores; and the former Saks Fifth Avenue was razed and replaced by several restaurants, a food court, and a strip-facing plaza called “The Cloud”.

The former Dillard’s store, previously meant to house Lord & Taylor, sat empty until Forever 21 moved into the building in 2010.

The mall’s parent company Rouse was purchased by General Growth Properties in 2004.

On September 9, 2006, following Federated’s purchase of May Department Stores, Robinsons-May was converted to a second Macy’s store. The store was shuttered in 2008 and remained empty until 2013, when it was converted into a wing of shops and a separate Macy’s Men store.

In January 2013, Macy’s announced it would close the Bloomingdale’s Home store. That building remained empty until 2015, when Dick’s Sporting Goods announced it would take over the building.
