Haberdash Fashion's Night Out Event in Chicago

So not to be outdone by the intense festivities taking place in New York City for FNO, Chicago’s Haberdash will be having an entertaining event of their own. Select pieces from the Red Wing historical archives will be on display, and complimentary tailoring will be available on all Levi’s Made & Crafted purchases. Representatives from both Red Wing Heritage and Levi’s Made & Crafted will also be available to speak with guests about each brand and its history.

Guests can enjoy hors d’oeuvres from Osteria Via Stato and tastings from Chicago’s own Koval Distillery. Bottom line – if you’re in Chi-town, make your way over to Haberdash for a great time. Please RSVP via haberdash@zapwater.com. More details below.

Fashion’s Night Out 2012 is here and it’s bigger than ever, folks. We’re talking hundreds of in-store experiences happening throughout New York City. We’ve tried our best to narrow down the list and focus on the most entertaining. Some of the bigger luxury brands are staying low key this time around but the party will literally be at their door step so they won’t be able to hide from the madness, especially in midtown. Note to the claustrophobics: Stay indoors tomorrow night. Seriously. Check out our list below.

FNO 2011 NYC | Gant's Bastian & Bastin Take Fashion's Night Out

Gant‘s doing it big for this year’s Fashion’s Night Out in New York City. FNO is on September 8th, 2011 and if you had plans of going somewhere other than the brand’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue or their new shop in Nolita on Prince Street, you might want to rethink that. Designers Michael Bastian and Christopher Bastin will be making personal appearances at both shops (7:30 to 8:30 at Fifth Ave and 9:00 & onward at Prince St) and bringing some great deals along as well.

Five Places for Fashion’s Night Out [NYC]

Fashion's Night Out [NYC]

With the 10th of September approaching fast, we think it’s best we let you in on our five places to check out for the best experience and, of course, best deals. For anyone unfamiliar, Fashion’s Night Out is an initiative spear-headed by American Vogue, NYC & Company, the City of New York, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to give life back to New York City’s fashion industry.

Next only to finance, fashion is the second-largest sector of industry in New York City—the headquarters of more than 800 fashion companies employing 175,000 people and generating $10 billion in total wages. At City Hall’s May 20 press conference to announce Fashion’s Night Out, Vera Wang said, “To put it bluntly, if people don’t shop, people lose their jobs.”

It’s looking to be a grand occasion as all our favorite designers are joining the festivities. Time is limited as most events only run for a few hours, making a trip from one stop to the next a bit difficult so plan accordingly. To see where we think you should be Thursday night, hit the jump. If you don’t agree with our list, keep it to yourself. Who am I kidding… let us know!
