Shopping malls across America are preparing for Fashion's Night Out on Thursday. The evening, which launches the fall fashion season, has grown in stature. It has become not just a night of shopping, but a major social event on the calendars of cities and towns everywhere.
In Orange County, some of the more spectacular in-store happenings include an hors d'oeuvres reception at Tiffany & Co., South Coast Plaza, hosted by store director Michael Botsko joining forces with the highly regarded Capital Grille Restaurant. It will offer butler-passed hors d' oeuvres and desserts to customers visiting Tiffany & Co. from 6 to 9 p.m. They are calling the event, which is free to the public, "Diamonds and Delicacies."
On the opposite end of South Coast Plaza, the trendy An Qi by Crustacean, is joining forces with Bloomingdales hosting what organizers are calling "Fashion, Food, Fire, Hot Fashion Show." The men of the Costa Mesa Fire Department will be modeling fall fashions from Bloomingdales on An Qi's elevated glass runway in the main dining room.
