On September 6, 2012 hoards of fashion lovers and avid shoppers will be flooding the streets of downtown Vancouver to get a chance to be a part of the first Fashion’s Night Out to take place in the city. With retailers still signing up on a daily basis and the social line up confirmed for the kick off fashion show, it will be a night to remember.
The Social fashion show for FNOV will be taking place at the CBC’s Studio 40 at 700 Hamilton Street. The doors for this show open at 5:30 with the show starting at 6pm and ending at 7pm, giving lots of time for attendees to still hit the streets shopping. The fashion show does have limited capacity though and is based on a first come basis, so it is best that those interested arrive early.
Here is the social lineup for the show:
Jason Matlo (who will be showing his newest Babe collection)
Evan Ducharme – winner of the FNOV Design Competition that took place on August 15th.
