Now we know what is being built behind the huge stretch of mystery plywood at the Fashion Show mall. We first told you about the 1,166-square-foot 7 for All Mankind store headed to this upper level perch, but Racked Vegas can now confirm Ted Baker London will be bringing their designer British clobber to the north Strip. "Everyone's A Winner With Ted," the poster promises. Opening soon is the closest hint to a debut date.
Ted Baker has already made its mark in Las Vegas with a bright and airy store at the Forum Shops at Caesars, noted for its playful window displays and also with an outlet store at Las Vegas Premium Outlets — North.

The Fashion Show plywood covers the recently shuttered row of stores that removed L'Core Luxury Cosmetics, Frederick's of Hollywood and Michael Kors. L'Core has relocated downstairs and as normal, with the remarkably lickety-split construction teams at Fashion Show, is already back in business. Frederick's has vacated the building.
But who will be replacing the Michael Kors store? A Michael Kors store. The company is temporarily set up not far away on the same level, inside the former Shiekh Shoes store, with shelves stacked with the Kors line of shoes, handbags and accessories. The company will return to their old location, but newly expanded and blinged out, via a declared $394,935 budget for construction.
This makeover is part of a revitalization of this section of the mall, set to include the forthcoming Vilebrequin men's swimwear store addition directly facing these new tenants.
