Fashion's Night Out in Colorado: How to do it right
Fashion's Night Out began in New York City in 2009, the brainchild of couture-culture queen Anna Wintour as a way to reignite consumer interest in fashion. Now Colorado is getting in on the party, which has become an international celebration; various boutiques across the state go big tomorrow night, September 6, in the name of Fashion's Night Out. Here's a list of just some of the fun (and mostly free) parties, fashion shows and goodie bag giveaways happening in the Denver/Boulder area for savvy fashionistas.
