We're less than 48 hours away, and our inboxes have been positively inundated with email invites to more Fashion's Night Out events than we can track. But instead of going through the entire roster of what's happening all over town, we're highlighting the sickest parties at some of our favorite retail hot spots to get you going this FNO Friday night. After you hit up the star-studded (and delish!) 3.1 Phillip Lim party, make sure you check out the rest of the festivities all across our fair city. From Angelica Houston's Margarita party on Abbott Kinney to a killer Rachel Zoe-approved vintage bash downtown, we've mapped out the seven SoCal FNO events you won't want to miss.
1. Confederacy + Current Elliott Denim Bar:
Rosetta Getty, Jacqui Getty, and Amanda de Cadenet will be there to dance to tunes by DJ MomJeans (aka Danny Masterson). Also, check out the etchings by Francesco Clemente, eat tacos by Escuela, and design your own Keds shoes at the C/E denim bar.
September 10, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Confederacy, 4661 Hollywood Boulevard (between Vermont and Hillhurst Avenues); 323-913-3040.
2. Ron Herman's Second Annual Bash:
The first fifty guests to buy a pair of J. Brand jeans will get a $50 gift certificate, and Monrow will be selling their celeb-favorite vintage tees and sweats. Taylor Jacobson, Rachel Zoe's former assistant, will be ending the night here so you can get some gossip from the ex-RZer!
September 10, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Ron Herman, 8100 Melrose Avenue (at Crescent Heights Avenue); 323-651-4129.
3. A Current Affair Designer Vintage Show:
Lasting until the 11th, Scout's Joey Grana and Richard Wainwright are bringing the best vintage event to the west coast with their party at the Cooper Design Space. This pop-up space will have 20 vendors featuring rare, high-end goodies that will blow you away. Don't forget to bring $10 dollars for the entry fee and remember to hit up the Cynthia Rowley mobile fashion truck on Saturday.
September 10, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and September 11 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Cooper Design Space, 860 South Los Angeles Street (at East Ninth Street); no phone.
4. Cast Of Vices In Venice:
Head over to Abbott Kinney for a free energy-field consultation at Strange Invisibles perfumery, plus deep discounts on some of this retail-heavy street's best shops. Rumor has it that Angelica Houston will be pouring margaritas, and there's an after party at Bar Chloe from 10 p.m. to late, so get ready for some Santa Monica after-hours fun.
