Fashion's Night Out
If you are in Paris, this is an event not to be missed. I wrote the following article for a Paris website!
In its second year running in Paris, “Fashion’s Night Out” will take place Sept. 7th 2010. This fabulous global fashion event that is sponsored by Vogue International is one that should not be missed! Many boutiques within the golden triangle shopping area of Paris will open their doors late in the evening and throw glitzy, star studded parties. This area includes Ave Montaigne, Rue Francois, and Ave. Georges V.
For many people, it is only a dream to be able to rub elbows with the fashion elite, and browse the couture dresses in the world’s top fashion boutiques. For this one night only, you can have these once in a life time experiences. Paris Vogue editor, Carine Roitfeld and other fashion celebrities such as designers and models will be at the various locations to meet and greet shoppers. There will be chances to get style and fashion advice from the pros, and get exclusive services throughout the evening. Famous boutiques such as Chanel and Dior will open their doors and make it inviting to be able to come in and browse through their current collections. Fashion’s Night Out allows shoppers to be inspired by fashion and bring the fun back into shopping. If you are not one who usually visits these high end boutiques, and usually just peeks in the windows from the outside, then this is your chance to go in and experience them easily without the pressure of sales people around you. The sex and glamour of Vogue with the added treats and goodie bags that will be given away will give this evening a sense of style and excitement, while making it easy to move from store to store enjoying a complete evening out.
Some of the events happening will include, a 3D film of Dior’s Fall Couture 2010 collection, a live jazz band at Ralph Lauren, and a DJ spinning at Diane Von Furstenberg. Louis Vuitton will host a fun, special photo studio where customers will get the chance to feature on mock covers of French Vogue magazine. Pink Champagne will flow and there will be live entertainment in almost every store. Overall, around 60 stores will participate in this event, each offering a fabulous fashion night out!
Last year, the event was a huge success where the streets were filled elbow to elbow with excited fashionistas sipping champagne and enjoying fashion advice. This fabulous event is held in 16 cities worldwide, lasts up to 23 hours and is quickly becoming an event that is not to be missed!
