Coming Right Up: Fashion's Night Out
What are you doing tomorrow night? If you like fashion, music, complimentary cocktails, and dazzle galore, the answer should be “Heading to Fashion’s Night Out.” This year marks the first-ever full-blown FNO event in our city, which is finally joining the club of cities in 17 countries across the globe. (For more history on the organizers, check out Christopher Muther’s piece on Boston.com.)
In previous years, select retailers have opted to host parties or offer special deals, but organizers struggled to find willing participants. This year, though, FNO is exploding throughout neighborhoods from the North End to the South End, JP to Copley. Newbury Street will be closed to vehicles, giving style-hungry shoppers unfettered access to the one-night-only frenzy happening at their favorite boutiques. Check out the list below for a few of what we predict for the highlights, then tell us in the comments: What are you most stoked for?
Vintage inspiration: Tiffany and Co. will transform its Copley Place and Natick locations into swingin’ “Studio 57,” complete with cocktails and DJs, to unveil its new ’70s-inspired “Era” collection.
Bling It On: Swarovski in the Pru is offering a crystal-encrusted compact with any $150 purchase, plus giveaways of sparkly prizes and sweet treats like mini red velvet cupcakes.
Game Changer: Überluxe Ames Hotel kicks off the whole shebang with a pop-up bar at Quixote Studios in Allston — Haru sushi, Stoli bevs, a live fashion show … need we say more?
Events start at 6 p.m., various locations; for more information, visit fnoboston.com.
