Fashion’s Night Out is an international cultural event. Put together by Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and other couture merchants, it began one year ago in New York (where else?) and is spreading this year to Australia, Britain, China, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey. And Pasadena. What exactly is it, besides an international cultural event? In Pasadena’s case, it means demonstrations and free stuff from the denizens of One Colorado, as well as a live runway show at 8 p.m. sharp in the Courtyard, in which participating merchants will show off their fall collections. A full list of the giveaways can be found here; of particular appeal to our frugal side are the free chocolate and champagne at A.B.S. and the complimentary wine and cheese at Russell’s Restaurant. Oh, and the free mini-cupcake at Dots, and complimentary premium Belgian chocolate from Leonidas. Aside from the free stuff, many stores are offering “shopping incentives,” if spending money is your thing.
