Fashionistas and designers have been waiting for Fashion Night Out 2012 for one whole year. The fashion event is at its fourth annual edition and from the looks of it, Fashion’s Night Out is going to carry on for years to come.
One night out shopping in malls and all kinds of boutiques, discounts, fashion shows and celebrities. How could one fashionista stay away from Vogue magazine’s “shopoliday”? Anna Wintour’s Fashion’s Night Out evolved into a nationwide and international phenomenon, with more highlights a night than one person could check in one night.
Fashion Night Out 2012 spread throughout the years to 18 countries. In the United States alone, there will be 4,500 dedicated events this year. Fashionistas in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles will have a hard time trying to figure out which shops, parties and events to choose. It doesn’t make it easier to take your pick seeing as all Fashion Night Out 2012 events are free and open to the public.
So here’s a list of highlights of Fashion’s Night Out 2012:
Chicago fashionistas will have a very booked schedule for their Fashion Night Out this year. To begin with, Blowtique is offering a free style during the afternoon. It’s best to look your best, because the night features a long list of hot parties and fashion events you shouldn’t miss.

Macy’s State Street welcomes “The Real Housewives of New York City”’s Aviva Drescher and “Fashion Star”’s Nzimiro Oputa to host a runway presentation.
Still, it is Michigan Avenue Magazine, McGrath Lexus and Acura of Downtown Chicago where the hottest action is. “900’s Night Out: Fame, Fashion & Flavor” promises three hours of manicures, hair styling and massages by Mario Tricoci and Bloomingdale’s.
