Sponsored Edition: Oh What A Night!
It’s always been your dream to be a retail VIP. A Very Important Purchaser, that is. You know, so you can be privy to special sales, get a flute of champagne the instant you step in a store, then be ushered into a private shopping area to see all of the boutique’s most exclusive wares.
Well here’s your big chance. Next Thursday, September 10, Ala Moana Center is hosting Fashion’s Night Out. It’s the inaugural shopping event launched by Vogue magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in celebration of New York Fashion Week, and it’s a global celebration of fashion, involving over 700 retailers and designers in New York City and in the fashion capitals of the world.
More than 50 Ala Moana Center retailers will be participating, offering special incentives, limited edition merchandise, trunk shows, product demonstrations, live entertainment and more. Snag amazing gift-with-purchases at Michael Kors, DKNY, Club Monaco, Valerie Joseph, Max&Co., True Religion and more, and enjoy special one-night-only discounts at Ann Taylor, J.Crew and Martin & MacArthur.
Luxury boutiques, such as Bally, Bulgari, Cartier, Chanel, Harry Winston, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Prada and Ralph Lauren will be breaking out the bubbly at their in-store cocktail receptions. And you won’t want to miss Neiman Marcus’ beauty and Art of Fashion events or Nordstrom’s food and drink tastings, fashion presentations and exciting cosmetics exclusives.
You can even enter to win fabulous giveaways, including a $250 Ala Moana Center shopping spree, gift certificates from Pearl, W Salon, Mani Pedi Spa, and a grand prize vacation for two to Four Seasons Resorts Lana‘i, valued at $1,500.
Plus, there will be multiple opportunities for shoppers to support the Hawai‘i Foodbank, a local charity that works to fight hunger and assist the island’s needy. Canned good donations will be accepted at Center Court and at select retailers, and donations at Cole Haan, Custo Barcelona, Gap, Sephora and Tommy Bahama will earn shoppers discounts off their purchase or special gifts.
Even Pearl Ultralounge is getting in on the action by hosting the official Fashion’s Night Out after party from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Consider it a VIP invitation.
To a Very Important Party.
