Tonight: Fashion's Night Out Los Angeles at Beverly Center
Fashion's Night Out Los Angeles at Beverly Center kicks off at 5:00 p.m. with an opening ceremony featuring Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, “Vogue’s” Senior West Coast Editor Lisa Love, The Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo and host of the fashion show to follow, actress and designer Nicole Richie.
The center court has once again been transformed into a high fashion catwalk with the first show starting at 5:30 and the second, featuring contemporary and juniors looks, at 8 p.m. Over 100 of the surrounding shops will promote partying as well as shopping throughout the evening, offering everything from complimentary champagne and red carpet makeovers to deep discounts, giveaways and raffles on the latest designs. And everyone’s a winner with free self-parking available from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Fashion's Night Out was founded by “Vogue” editor Anna Wintour a few years ago in New York City, but has now gone global. This is the second year Los Angeles has participated in the international event, which encourages shoppers to forget their recession worries and stimulate the economy through shopping. More than 25,000 people attended the event last year at Beverly Center.
The full schedule of events happening tonight at Beverly Center can be found here. Other Fashion's Night Out events across the city are happening at Melrose Ave./ Place, Robertson Blvd., West 3rd St., Venice, and Westfield Century City.
