Monkee’s of Lake Norman set to walk the runway at Fashion’s Night Out Charlotte on Sept. 8

DAVIDSON — Monkee’s of Lake Norman, the destination for all things stylish in Lake Norman, will be part of the Fashion’s Night Out celebration Sept. 8 in Charlotte.

Fashion’s Night Out is an unprecedented global initiative created in 2009 in a partnership between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping.

The local event, sponsored by Hendrick Motors of Charlotte-Mercedez Benz and Effie Loukas, will feature more than 23 of the Charlotte area’s best boutiques on the catwalk.

From 6-10p on Sept. 8, fashion will take over the streets of the chic Metropolitan development in uptown Charlotte. Boutiques, including Monkee’s of Lake Norman (recently chosen as best shoe store by Charlotte Magazine) will strut their latest and greatest wares down the runway while raising money for the Zero Cancer-Great Prostate Cancer Challenge-Charlotte 2011.

Monkee’s models will be wearing the latest in retro chic with a modern twist from Milly, Tory Burch, Plastic Island and Francis, among other lines. The fierce looks will be complimented by hair and makeup from Perfect 5th Salon in Mooresville.

Tickets are $25-$400 and are on sale now at
