The Austin Fashion’s Night Out events brought out the stylish and fashion lover (coming off Austin Fashion Week we certainly had a fill of fashion…or one would think) to some of the top fashion stores, including Nieman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. And if you didn’t hear the news, Saks will be closing their doors at their Arboretum location. The Highland Park, Illinois store was also one of the stores on the chopping block for the retailers. We wish the 50+ employees of the store best of luck and let’s network to find them local jobs in our wonderful Austin Fashion Industry.
Fashionably Austin photographer Gregg Cestaro and reporter Rachel Elsberry hit the streets of Austin and enjoyed watching some of the great street fashions, makeup demonstrations, hair consultations and more!. I was on my way to New York for fashion week and was right in the middle of the New York version of Fashion’s Night Out. I did the drive by version this year.
