What better way to start off a new season and a new wardrobe than with the internationally celebrated event, Fashion's Night Out. It's Fall already, the air is chilly and the leaves are falling, but most importantly it's time for a wardrobe change to warm knits and gorgeous boots. FNO fell on September 8th this year. Minnesota does not have the largest celebration, but it is definitely note-worthy.
The location I attended this year was at the Galleria in Edina, MN. Stores and Boutiques like Louis Vuitton and Cole Haan featured give-aways, exclusive discounts, and ample amounts of hors d'oeuvres. FNO also showcased other fashion related exhibits. Some of these include: Release of Louis Vuitton's Fall '11 line, a mini art gallery, of this season's inspiring art, and a masterpiece of a dress made from newspaper. Among all of these fabulous attractions, I also experienced the variety of musical offerings. This included everything from live pianists to a surprise flash singing mob.
Yay for winning! Normally I don't enter sweepstakes or put my name in drawings, but there were two I just could not resist. Cole Haan's "Free Shoes For a Year" and FNO Sponsored "FNO-Tee". Unfortunately I did not win the plethora of shoes, but I did win this exclusive FNO-China Tee, that I most definitely will be sporting :)
But aside from all of the glamorous festivities, drag queens, free food, and shopping, the community portion was dedicated to a fundraiser party that kicked off the night benefiting Operation Smile. This great organization help to heal and fix children with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. To find out more or to donate click here.
Hope you all had an equally or more fabulous FNO '11!
Until next time, walk in someone else's Choos...
