Time to party like the economy's 1999.
This Thursday, Neiman Marcus is hosting Fashion’s Night Out, a global please-somebody-buy-something-so-we-won't-go-out-of-business initiative whipped together by Vogue Magazine and the Council of Fashion Designers.
The storied retailer is kicking off the evening (happening around the globe at various stores) with a host of activities for fashion-savvy consumers. Stick around for designer appearances, celebrity guests, and opportunities for gifts with purchase.
And it’s happening throughout all four floors. When you walk in, you’ll enter into “Beautypalooza,” a retreat of makeovers, hair and skin consultations and a leopard print tote with fab beauty finds with any purchase in cosmetics or fragrance of 100$ or more. Receive a Manolo Blahnik
illustrated T-shirt with the purchase of any Manolo Blahnik shoe, and look for a personal appearance by chic handbag designer Lauren Merkin
Ascend to the second floor for treats and beats: Meet Bravo TV’s top chef contestant Radhika Desai
and taste some of her creations. Then, satisfy a sweet tooth with “Couture and cupcakes” from More gourmet cupcake bakery, all while listening to the sounds of the Jazz couture trio.
On the third floor there will be a fall trend fashion presentation at 7 p.m., plus keep your eyes out for a sweet Marc by Marc Jacobs gift with purchase while you’re at it.
And last but not least, there’s the top floor, if you can possibly make it up there before your three hours of pure shopping bliss are over. On four, learn to add fashion to your table with flowers, from the owner of the Chicago School of Floral Design
If you want a fashionanble souvenir from the evening, don’t worry; they’ve got that covered too. Purchase the exclusive $30 Fashion's Night Out T-Shirt and 40 percent of the proceeds will benefit the September 11 Memorial and Museum.
Look at you and all your good-doings. That wasn’t so hard now, was it?
Fashion’s Night Out will take place September 10, from 6-9 p.m. at Neiman Marcus, 737 N. Michigan Avenue; for more information call 312.642.5900 or visit www.neimanmarcus.com
