Have you heard of Fashion Night Out? Do they do one where you live? Here’s a description from this years webpage:
Fashion’s Night Out is an unprecedented global initiative created in 2009 to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy during the recession, and put the fun back in shopping! In the United States, the program is a collaboration between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York.
This is it’s 4th year and I have never joined in the festivities, so I figured it was time to get in on the fun! Also, I had an invite through work to one of the bigger events, so definitely wanted to check that out.
I grabbed my favorite girls and set out on the streets of NYC.We started with the Cela launch which was at Sea Thai Restaurant. There’s one in Brooklyn that I’ve eaten at, but I had never been to the one in the meatpacking district. Cool venue.
The invitation promised hors d’oeuvres, but there were none! Boo! There was a lot of free champagne though!
and hand/arm massages!
When we got too cool for the party, we popped over to a nearby pub for a beer and weird chips.
All in all, Fashion Night Out was a lot of fun, but consisted of very little fashion and very much drinking. haha! Cheers!
Does your city do Fashion Night Out? Do you like events at swanky bars or are you more of a beer in a pub type person?
