The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at all three stops on the malls' first floor.Everyone who attends can go through the activation, and following the National Fit Tour, NYDJ will select images from each location that will make the final 2017 campaign.Fashion photographer Dewey Nicks will shoot the campaign at each mall location, and stylist Inge Fonteyne will style each participant.
