WHAT: Fashion's Night Out was initiated by Vogue Magazine in New York City in 2009, as a world wide celebration of fashion with after-hours shopping extravaganzas and special events and entertainment. Portsmouth has been an official participant in Vogue's Fashion's Night Out since 2011. In 2013, Vogue's FNO went on hiatus, but Portsmouth's downtown shops continue to celebrate the fashion and style of our port city. Portsmouth's 4th annual fashion celebration is hosted by the Retail Committee of the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce.
On September 4th, downtown Portsmouth will be the place to see and be seen on the Portsmouth fashion scene, when locally owned shops present the very best of their carefully curated new Fall and Winter collections. The red carpets and red, black and white balloons will be in front of participating shops, welcoming you to designer trunk shows, fashion demonstrations, special sales, nibbles and libations and FUN!
WHEN & WHERE: Visit shops from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m., stop by Popovers on Market Square to meet Miss Portsmouth Area, and have your photo taken in our Tap Snap photo booth and uploaded to Facebook. Keep an eye out for the famous Flower Girls, dressed in living flowers and flora, designed by Marcia Hansen Design with materials supplied by The Flower Kiosk. Watch for paparazzi throughout the downtown, shooting pictures of YOUR fashion and style. Raffle tickets for a chance to win shopping prizes and two round trip tickets to New York City on C&J Bus Lines will be handed out through the evening (must be present at Nightcap Party to win).
Join us from 8:00 - 10:00 at the Hilton Garden Inn for a Nightcap Party and Fashion Runway Show. Nibbles, Kilwins chocolates, cash bar, music by DJ Ryz, and a slide show of pictures taken throughout the evening by the paparazzi will keep you entertained. Raffle prizes will be drawn after the Fashion Show. Must be present to win.
