Breaking: Wynwood to host second annual Fashion’s Night Out

The bad news: The original Fashion’s Night Out spearheaded by Anna Wintour met its untimely demise in 2013. Dunzo. Kaput.

Sad.

The good news? The second annual Wynwood Fashion Night Out will be held Nov. 2. #SoBlessed

“We’re thrilled to announce the return of Wynwood’s Fashion Night Out and invite the South Florida community to an evening filled with exceptional street art, retail and dining experiences,” Wynwood BID Vice Chairman Albert Garcia says.

What can revelers expect? More than 40 participating businesses throughout Wynwood will be offering an array of in-store promotions (think giveaways and discounts) and parties (bring on the sips and bites!). Expect some catwalk action as well in the form of a grand finale Fashion Show at Mana Wynwood featuring clothing and accessories from neighboring boutiques.

There’s a feel-good component, too. “Wynwood’s business community is also coming together to collected donated items to support the women and families of Lotus House as part of this year’s annual event,” Garcia says.

Wynwood FNO participating retailers will be collecting donated items for non-profit Lotus House, an organization working to improve the lives of homeless women, youth and children. In fact, Wynwood FNO will launch a month-long drive for Lotus House because… ’tis the season to be giving. Items being collected include: Baby diapers, ladies and children’s underwear, new holiday toys for boy and girls, socks for female adults and children and Dove body soap.

Over 40 stores (whoa!) are participating in the fashion and foodie fun. Aesop, Antidote, BASE, Beaker & Grey, Boho Hunter, Del Toro Shoes, Fireman Derek’s Bake Shop, Illesteva, Lovely Bridal Shop, MVM Miami, Panther Coffee, Shinola, Warby Parker and more are in the mix.
