Australian pop-singer Cody Simpson will be performing a special acoustic set at Mall of Georgia’s “ABC’s of Style” event tomorrow.

Simon’s ABC’s of Style event launches Mall of Georgia’s collaboration with Teen Vogue for the “Back-to-School Saturdays” initiative. The event will feature various activities, including a fashion show, mall-wide discount offers and, of course, a live performance by Cody Simpson.

Cody Simpson grew up on the beach, so he describes his day-to-day style as more on the casual side.

“I’m pretty casual — flip flops, jeans and a T-shirt,” Simpson said. “When I moved to the state, I was introduced to more high fashion and now I kind of mix the two. I still dress like I do at home but now I have more of a sophisticated look.”

Simpson has a stylist but still stays hands on with his fashion choices.

“A lot of times, I style myself or I’ll have someone pull a few things and then I put something together on my own,” Simpson said. “When I go to big events, though I use a stylist.”

Simpson’s had a busy few years releasing two albums, “Surfer’s Paradise” and “Acoustic Sesseions EP,” the new single “Surfboard,” performing on “Dancing with the Stars,” and touring around the US and Canada— When he isn’t working, Simpson said he likes to keep things normal.

“I honestly don’t take much down time — but when I do, I like to write music and play my guitar,” Simpson said. “I hang out with friends, my dad, or my brother. I just try to keep things normal.”

Mall of Georgia, in collaboration with Teen Vogue’s “Back-to-School Saturday” initiative, is helping families shop for the latest styles while enjoying entertainment throughout the month of August.

“This is an exciting time of year and as Mall of Georgia is the center of fashion in Gwinnett County, teaming up with Teen Vogue elevates our back-to-school shopping season into a true fashion and entertainment experience,” Carol Cox, Director of Mall Marketing and Bussiness Development at Mall of Georgia, said.

Mall of Georgia’s ABC’s of Style event will take place Saturday, Aug. 16 from 2 to 6 p.m. in the Village Ampitheatre.
