Experience: Style Night Out

Style Night Out presented by Electrolux takes place Thursday, September 5th at Morrison Shopping Center in SouthPark. This annual event (this is the fifth year) is the brainchild of Effie Loukas, a fashionista and business woman whose stylish touch has been apart of many fashion shows and charitable events.

Effie is the founder of Lotus Boutique in Midtown and has produced events including the official Fashion’s Night Out Charlotte and assisted with American Cancer Society Cure By Design, Oscar de la Renta event for the Mint Museum and other events. For Loukas, fashion is just as much apart of her life as breathing.

Her latest event, Style Night Out brings together over 50 of Charlotte’s local boutiques, salons, and makeup artists for a night of fashion and artistry. Joy Randall of Flawless Make-Up Art is this year’s Beauty Director and she handles all the behind the scenes hair and makeup needs. Lucky for us, we get to see the finished product–models strutting down the runway in beautiful clothes from local boutiques once she has worked her magic. Some of the participating boutiques include The Boulevard at Southend, The Cheeky Bean, Brief and all boutiques will share their latest and greatest fashion finds. There will be pop-up shops and the event benefits Carolina Breast Friends.

Doors open at 5pm and the show begins at 8pm. Limited tickets are still available and can be purchased at Last year’s event included over 2,000 attendees so get there early so you don’t miss the show!
