BLE is making a fashion statement with an all-new activation showcasing the very best in licensed couture, branded glad rags and character-inspired accessories.

The brand-new Fresh off the Runway activation will see a jaw-dropping display of Fashion x Licensing collabs on super-styled mannequins in each of the show’s five visitor entrances.
