Last night, the city of Boston celebrated it’s second annual Fashion’s Night Out (FNO). The evening drew fashionistas, designers, models, students and, you know, just people who wear clothes in general, all of whom came to celebrate Boston’s fashion industry during one very stylish night. For this year’s Fashion’s Night Out, Newbury Street was swarmed with shoppers, Copley Square was the center of a beautiful fashion show and Downtown Crossing displayed some of the most prominent fashion startups in Boston. Of course, Bostonians were armed with their most fashionable accessory — their smartphones — and were eager to snap Instagram photos of Fashion’s Night Out. Below you’ll find a sampling of images from all of the wonderful fashion last night — check out the photos of Fashion’s Night Out Boston 2012 in the slideshow below.

Fashion’s Night Out 2012 brought a variety of events to Boston’s stores, including fashion shows, makeovers, food, drinks and discounts, all in celebration of the local fashion industry.
On Newbury Street, vehicle traffic was shut down, allowing shoppers to flood the streets. Herb Chambers also lined its exotic car collection over six blocks showcasing over 80 vehicles, including a Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Dayton Spyder and a McLaren F1. Life is good hosted various artists throughout the night as well as backyard games and raffles. Local bands performed on an outdoor stage in front of Stephanie’s on Newbury. And of course, countless stores opened their doors for patrons to shop, sip and nibble treats with trunk shows and discounts.
Copley Place Mall hosted a Fashion Show featuring designs from Nieman Marcus, Jimmy Choo, Vince, Elie Tahari and Wolford. Massachusetts College of Art and Design students.
The Prudential Center screened one of the most iconic fashion movies of all time — “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” in its South Garden.
In Downtown Crossing, local startups including The Fashion Truck, Swirl and The Fashion Project, partnered together for a good cause, receiving donations of gently-used clothing in exchange for discounts and free accessories.
Over in the South End, there was a Red Light District party featuring goodie bags, discounts, trunk shows and fashion shows, followed by dinners and parties at delicious South End restaurants.
The night concluded with a plethora of after-parties, including a raging bash at The Estate.
Overall, the evening was fun, filled with energy, vibrancy and enthusiasm for the burgeoning fashion community here in Boston. Until next year, my friends.
