H.K.’s first FNO was held in 2012, and was a major success. Guests packed three of Lane Crawford’s locations and wandered around shopping, meeting designers, rubbing elbows with celebrities, participating in activities, customizing their purchases, and eating snacks.
Fashion Night Out 2013 promises to be bigger and better.
The event is being held on Friday, September 6th, from 6 pm until 10 pm. Once again, FNO will be taking place at three Lane Crawford locations: IFC (Central,) Canton Road (Tsim Sha Tsui,) and Times Square (Causeway Bay.)
Perhaps more than any other fashion retailer in the city, Lane Crawford excels at creating a fun atmosphere at their events. In addition to providing a wonderland of snacks and drinks, there are activities to engage shoppers, such as DIY workshops and the ability to customize your purchases.
This year Lane Crawford is also bringing in smaller indie boutiques such as Kapok, to participate in the festivities.
In addition to local celebrities and personalities, there will be numerous international guests.
One clear standout is the inclusion of the fashion critic / performance artist duo, The Bumbys, who will be on hand to give the city’s fashion plates a “fair and honest appraisal of your appearance”… Oh! We can’t wait!
Also attending will be Charlotte Knight, founder of the London-based nail specialist Ciate, who will be showcasing a special FNO design.
Other fun attractions include Fashion Night Out temporary tattoos, DIY Eddie Borgo bracelet making, as well as monogramming and customization of purchases from brands such as Smythson, Cambridge Satchel, Rimowa, and J.Crew.
An exclusive Alexander Wang charity T-shirt, which proved to be a big attraction last year, is back again, for sale at $450HKD, with all proceeds donated to Unicef.
China’s fashion blogger 韩火火 Han Huo Huo will also be on hand to launch his book Fire Bible 2013.
Fashion’s Night Out at Lane Crawford is essentially a big party offering multiple attractions and lots to discover!
