FNO Alexandria is Almost Here!
On Sept. 6, 2012, Alexandria joins the ranks of the fashion elite by hosting it's first Vogue and CFDA sponsored Fashion's Night Out. FNO began four years ago in NYC and has been growing ever since all over the world. Thanks to some hard working people (Maurisa Potts of Spotted MP public relations firm and the ACVA), the City received approval to launch FNO Alexandria. The FANTASTIC host committee (did I mention I'm on it:)) is led by Tameka Young, runway model and wife of Alexandria's City Manager.
But what actually happens at an FNO celebration? Retailers will be staying open late for shoppers and will have parties, trunk shows, and special guests at their stores. Restaurants will be offering special drinks and menu items. The Torpedo Factory will be the host for a MAJOR fashion show featuring looks from the amazing Alexandria boutiques as well as some surprise modeling featuring period looks. It will be very cool, I promise.
There will be lots more to tell you about both leading up to the night as well as during all of the events so keep checking back often. OH! Follow me on twitter @KJMShopper and I will keep you literally up to the minute on all the goings-on and backstage fun at the fashion show (I'm styling along with Maggy Francois) and at the fab VIP party at Hotel Monaco before. All the fun, fashion, drinks, and more you could ever want to know about.
