Look forward to working with you again soon."

I wanted to let you know that you exceeded my expectations on this trip. There is a tremendous amount of work that goes in to 4 minutes of air time. Without all the front end work on your part, this could not have been possible. You really mastered our brand and brilliantly presented it in the most information-packed 4 minutes that I've ever seen. I could not have done this without you.
Thank you. Mella

"My friend Kerri and I recently attended the King of Prussia Mall's Fashion's Night Out on September 8. I think King of Prussia Mall did a fantastic job of making this event so spectacular and exciting...
The fashion show held in the center of the mall was flawlessly executed. They put together different looks from stores in the mall such as Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Kate Spade, Cache, Nordstrom, Betsey Johnson, and even Sears. I have to say that the Sears Kardashian line was put together really well on the runway and looked affordable and fashionable."
