Business, family, legal, entertainment services, forms and more! GO TO

Last Thursady, September 8, whether in Paris, Milan, New York or Los Angeles it didnt matter, even fashion needs a night out and definitely if it includes Nordstroms rackish and trunk show-like sales; wine and cigar tastings, makeovers and red carpet events. Of course no city puts a spotlight on Fashion Night Out (FNO) like Sin City, Las Vegas! Remember what happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas; except for the couture you pick up between shows, fine dining and clubbing!

Designers and design houses from around the world with boutiques in Las Vegas held events some such as the Venetian Hotel even had hosts like Giuliana Rancic from E-Entertainment, others held shows on the runway, like shops at the Fashion Show Mall. Of course places like Caesars Palaces Forum Shoppes and City Centers Crystals went all out with a plethora of choices from their couturiers.  Participating retailers at Crystals donated a percentage of sales to the local charity partner they have selected for the evening, which included:

Fendi and Keep Memory Alive
Dior and Communities in Schools of Nevada
Yves Saint Laurent and Opportunity Village
Lanvin and Lied Discovery Children's Museum
Stella McCartney and the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas
Donna Karan and United Way of Southern Nevada
Kiki de Montparnasse and Nevada Cancer Institute
Nanette Lepore and Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas
Assouline and UNLV Foundation / University Libraries
Mikimoto and Nevada Pops
Emilio Pucci and The Shade Tree
de Grisogono and Spread the Word Nevada
TAG Heuer and Cleveland Clinic' Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health
Tom Ford and The Smith Center for Performing Arts

All in all, we simply cant resist the fact that FNO is the only night that the mainstream designers, couturiers and the like even gesture at a “sale”. The GREAT thing is that many proceeds go to well regarded charities…so until next year I’ll bid you fashionistas, metrosexuals and bon vivants well.
