Crystals at CityCenter overflowed with fashion and philanthropy in its second year of celebrating Fashion’s Night Out on Thursday night. Thousands of guests enjoyed an exciting fashion showcase from legendary “Sex and the City” stylist Patricia Field, an enchanting “pop-up” performance by Nevada Ballet Theatre, unique in-store experiences and restaurant tastings, and the opportunity to give back to the Las Vegas community.
Emmy-Award winning stylist Patricia Field, who changed the fashion world with Carrie Bradshaw’s style in “Sex and the City,” offered her genius to a fashion showcase at the center of Crystals. Eager fashionistas gathered around the runway as Field spoke about her inspiration behind the incredible looks she created from Crystals’ unrivaled collection of luxury designers. With Michael Shulman providing high-energy music, Field’s chic models walked the runway in the latest pieces from Roberto Cavalli, Paul Smith, ERES, Kiki de Montparnasse, Donna Karan, Jimmy Choo, Brunello Cucinelli, Bally, Marni and Ermenegildo Zegna.
The fashionable fun continued while guests shopped for a cause and enjoyed in-store events at Crystals’ retailers:
• Paul Smith offered bites from Todd English P.U.B., as well as a meet and greet with “Fantasy” songstress Lorena Peril and Adrian Zmed of “Grease II.”
• Guests were treated to a delightful performance of past Coca-Cola jingles by a choir performing at Assouline while they sipped on Coca-Cola themed cocktails.
• Roberto Cavalli threw a “Wild Diva” party, complete with a DJ and photographer to capture guests’ “diva style.”
• Fendi modeled its new special Pequin sunglasses while guests nibbled on appetizers courtesy of Crystals’ Mastro’s Ocean Club.
• Live models struck a pose in the window displays at Kiki de Montparnasse, enticing passersby with exotic lingerie.
Pit stops were made at the “Man Cave” presented by Dream Racing, where guests got their adrenaline pumping with racing simulators manned by hosts in racing suits.
