For every gift card purchased, one dollar is automatically donated to Komen for the Cure.
Additionally, retailers throughout The Forum Shops are offering a variety of special products from crystal paper weights to polo shirts to silver cufflinks – each aimed to support programs and organizations that promote early detection, education and research funding for breast cancer. Visit Couture Collections during the month of October and receive a Rosenthal Crystal heart-shaped pink paper weight* as a gift with purchase of $150 or more.

FORUM FASHION FORWARD TIP: Big, bright bold colors, studs and stones are the stars of the fall season. From handbags to shoes and watches, The Forum Shops has the perfect pick to make a statement this autumn. It’s all about the gemstone at Fendi. Their Crazy Carates Collection featuring a revolutionary ladies timepiece – a rolling mechanism technology that changes the gemstones with a simple turn of the crown – comes in coordinating crocodile leather bands this fall. At Ted Baker London it’s metal appliqué all the way. This year, their hammered gold metal Anisse clutch bag is red hot for fall. This season, the team at Christian Louboutin has taken their red theme to a new level. For the fall must-have item, they revealed the new signature Daffy Suede Royal Red platform pump with 6 inch heels – red from top to bottom. For the guys, high-tops never looked so good. Mixing comfort with style, Salvatore Ferragamo puts a colorful twist on an undeniable classic. Made from luxurious calf leather and easily dressed up or down, you will not want to be without these kicks this fall.
