Fashion’s Night Out in Florence, a product of the collaboration between Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers of America, is sure to bring to the public a night of entertainment, champagne, and celebrities donning the season’s most coveted designer garb. The event, dedicated to celebrating fashion, occurs on one night, once a year in 18 different countries and features parties held in over 4,500 participating retail stores.
Stores participating in Fashion’s Night Out host parties that often include live entertainment, free swag, celebrity guests, and plenty of booze.
Fashion’s Night Out in Florence occurs on Via de Calzaiuoli, Via Tornabuoni, and Piazza della Repubblica and features anything from high-end designers like Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci to trendy boutiques like Louisa Via Roma and Pinko. The streets of Piazza della Repubblica and Piazza del Duomo crowd with eager shoppers hoping to snag a seat at the free makeup sessions offered at Sephora. Past Fashion’s Night Out events in Florence include an exhibition held at Palazzo Anitori featuring the collections of 15 emerging Italian designers.
Fashion’s Night Out customers get the chance to attend in-store book signings, meet designers, and schmooze with celebs all the while ogling beautiful clothes. The occasional limited-edition item and discounted merchandise are among the many perks of attending Fashion’s Night Out. This fashion store-crawl, which first occurred in New York City in 2009 as a precursor to Fashion Week, is a fun way for worldwide consumers to spend and is surely not a night to be missed.
