Earlier this week, I met with the Downtown Seattle Association and Seattle Met Magazine to discuss next week’s big Fashion’s Night Out event on Thursday, September 6th! Even though I’ve been reading about FNO since the event began back in 2009, this is the first time that I have ever gotten a first look at it or rather a behind-the-scenes look.
In previous years, Seattle and Bellevue retailers would host their own in-store events, but this year, the Downtown Seattle Association, Seattle Met Magazine, and Pacific Place are trying to create a more cohesive experience. In addition to in-store events, there will also be a spectacular runway show featuring all of this fall’s hottest trends held in the Pacific Place Atrium. The Downtown Seattle Rocks the Runway event will be from 5:30pm-9pm and feature a photo booth provided by Seattle Met Magazine and cocktails served in the lounges set for ticket holders to the show.
There will be 70 looks provided from downtown Seattle retailers including: Nordstrom, Macy’s, Mario’s, Barneys New York, Alhambra, True Religion Brand Jeans, and many more with hair styled by 7 Salon and makeup by Gene Juarez Salons.
Tickets are going quick, but if you still want to snag yours, click here. The proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to O Wines Opportunity For Success Scholarship Program to help provide young women with college scholarships. It’s a great cause that I think we can all try and get behind through supporting fashion too!
Stay tuned to Yow Yow for more Fashion’s Night Out themed posts including fall trends, events happening that can’t be missed, and the new scavenger hunt!
Additionally: I am giving away a Pacific Place $50 gift card!
Whether you’ll be using it at Fashion’s Night Out or for another occasion, you don’t want to miss out! Pacific Place is home to some of my favorite retailers including J. Crew, Kate Spade, BCBG Max Azria, Club Monaco, and many more.
