DC’s Fashion’s Night Out is back, and it’s taking over the city tonight. Originally founded in New York to kick-off Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out is an event that now takes place in cities and towns across the country.

Several DC retailers and businesses will participate this year, including shops in Alexandria, Tyson’s Corner and Georgetown, which has more than 100 events planned for the evening. Participants can expect designer deals, fashion shows, promotions, parties and more.

But you don’t have to venture outside of the neighborhood to soak up the fashion — Lettie Gooch Boutique will host “Champagne, Clutches & Couture” to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out. From 6 until 10 pm, guests will be treated to champagne cocktails (provided by Cork Wine Bar and Market), a handbag trunk show and an opportunity to shop new fall arrivals.

Policy Restaurant and Lounge, 1904 14th Street NW, is offering shoppers some tasty discounts for Fashion’s Night Out. Featured wines at half price as well as dessert specials from 6 to 10 pm. Prices will depend on the wine you select.

“Champagne, Clutches & Couture” will take place tonight at 1517 U Street NW; the event is open to the public. More information is available on the event’s Facebook page.

Other neighborhood retailers participating in Fashion’s Night Out include Redeem (1734 14th Street NW) and G-Star RAW (1666 Connecticut Avenue NW).
