Tonight marks the fourth annual Fashion’s Night Out — Fashion Week’s global pre-party — and with thousands of events across 19 countries, you’re probably not far from an FNO happening. We can’t promise you’ll run headfirst into a supermodel, but we can tell you which hotels are participating with fashion shows, shopping events, exclusive deals and more. Here are 10 hotels in six cities that will celebrate in creative ways.
Kick off Fashion Week in style at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Trump SoHo New York. Tonight, the beauty bar at The Spa at Trump SoHo is offering free hair and makeup touch-ups, nail-polish changes, Prosecco and light bites; for an overnight stay, book the hotel’s “It’s In The Bag” package through September 14 and enjoy free or discounted accessories from Ivanka Trump. Uptown, pick up limited-edition merchandise (like chic Fashion 4 Development scarves) from the boutique Assouline at the Four-Star The Plaza Hotel. And for an all-out Fashion Week adventure — including transportation to the fashion tents and personal-shopping services at Bloomingdale’s — book the FNO package at the Four-Star Hôtel Plaza Athénée New York.
First stop: Tao at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, where the pre-party begins at 5 p.m. Then, Crystals at CityCenter, which is hosting a charity shopping crawl and fashion show, plus a sneak peek of fashion from the upcoming Cirque du Soleil show, Zarkana, at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star ARIA Resort & Casino. Celebrity stylist Patricia Field hosts. Over at The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino, also a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, the Diane von Furstenberg boutique hosts a DJ-fueled party with cocktails and desserts.
M29 LIFESTYLE, the artfully curated clothing-and-gifts boutique at the Five-Star Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C., has a slew of insider perks from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight. Festivities include custom style consultations, surprise discounts, touch-up blowouts, Early Mountain Vineyard wine — with their sommelier on hand — and hors d’oeuvres made by the hotel. Get to Georgetown on time: M29 LIFESTYLE’s first 25 guests receive a free gift.
Head to Union Square for Saks Fifth Avenue’s 6 p.m. party; all attendees receive a deal on Uber car service, and those who spend $100 receive a 50-minute personalized spa service from the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco.
Follow the fashion set to Sunset Boulevard and The Standard, Hollywood, for the official FNO after-party from 10 p.m. to midnight. The first hour is a complimentary cocktail hour, so we recommend getting to the pool deck, pronto.
To celebrate Fashion’s Night Out, Midwestern-style, stop by Milwaukee’s The Pfister Hotel between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. for a fashion show, live music, food and drinks, dancers and designs from the hotel’s artist in residence, Timothy Westbrook. Makeovers and mini-massages from Well Spa complete the event, and your FNO look.
