Lanvin Necklace at Paris boutique during Vogue Fashion Night Out
Just 2 days ago, the fash pack of Paris along with editors and fashion PR from around the world united for an evening of fun, Vogue style, despite the rain. This was the fifth edition of the event.
If your new to fashion night out, here’s the skinny. It was founded in 2009 by Anna Wintour, Vogue’s editor in Chief, in collaboration with the CFDA. The idea was to drive sales during a tough economy with a night where the stores stay open and the streets are filled with personalized events at each of the brands participating from music with DJ’s to manicures, cocktails and surprise details.

I had a chance to see Vogue’s Fashion Night Out in Paris, Milan and New York, as they were during fashion week. The busiest by far, was in NYC, where there was a literal wall of fashion enthusiasts flocking to be a part of the evening.

Paris based guest correspondent Hadrien Lacoste of fashion blog A Private Collection was there and I will turn it over to him to recount the evening for this guest post:
For the 5th edition of Vogue’s Fashion Night Out, Vogue Paris organized the fashion party of the year at Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in the heart of the fashion capital.
Between eccentricity, glamour and flutes of champagne, I walked along the Parisian streets in some of the most beautiful areas of town in the 1st and 2nd arrondissements.
Along the way I had a chance meeting with Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris and I also had the thrill to meet Mademoiselle Agnès, of Vogue Paris, kind of a muse of mine.
Between fashion bloggers, fashion addicts, professionnals and young talents, I walked up through the shops from Zara to Chanel and Prada seeing all kinds of style to add to the inspiration of the evening .
We felt this lounge like atmosphere, all very exciting and I felt like a privileged guest by showing my VogueParis invitation before accessing each event. This kind of evening allows everybody who is a part of fashion to get a glimpse into the world of fashion for a unique night.
At Dior, we experienced unconventionnal cocktails, discovering furs and many unexpected Lady Dior bags. Tara Jarmon brought us a huge pink party with balloons, candyflosses and little gifts. The streets cellars were adorned with flowers all dressed up. We found hidden lounge bars and chic society behind red curtains such as at Giambattista Valli.
All these fashionable people on stilettos or flat Tod’s mixing together with admiration, the only thing to do for the evening was to have fun during the party!
