A fashionable fete inside shops downtown hosting open houses,
demos style tips and more on May 5
ITHACA, APRIL 26, 2017 — On Friday, May 5, 2016, Ithaca Fashion Night returns to Downtown Ithaca, marking its third year. Fashion Night has become an annual tradition for retailers to greet customers with an evening of style and fashion-inspired entertainment for customers looking to spruce up their style for the summer, or just check out the latest trends.
From 5:00-8:00 PM, Fashion Night guests can shop at over dozen participating downtown stores and boutiques while enjoying many not-to-be-missed fashion and style experiences including discounts, coupons, contests, in-store style consultations, tips from style experts, bow-tie and scarf-tying clinics, music performances, face painting along with food, open houses with cocktail and beer samplings, and even opportunities to meet the apparel and jewelry makers.
Willow, downtown’s newest ladies clothing and accessories shop, is participating in this spectacular celebration and will feature a special truck show that will carry beautiful baubles from Rochester jewelry designer Emerson and Oliver.
Additional participants include Breathe, 15 Steps, Ithacamade, Thrive Ethical Fashion, Loose Threads, Petrune, Handwork, American Crafts by Robbie Dein, Benjamin Peters, SewGreen, Narrative Space, and more will also showcase their latest products — a fashion fete you won’t want to miss.
While these may not deal in clothing and accessories, don’t forget to check out Ithacapellas 6 p.m. performance in front of Benjamin Peters. This Ithaca College-based all-male choir is sure to put you in the mood to dance! Also, the Ithaca Marriott is a partner in style for the night offering a host of delicious and handmade stylish beverage concoctions infusing local ingredients with lively spirits.
As you make your first store stop, make sure to pick up a Fashion Night Passport to mark off your stops and then return your passport at your last stop for the night or at the Downtown Visitor Center to enter to win one of two gift cards to help you get your style on in downtown.
