Shop Late Night in Lawrencville is back

Written by Sara Bauknecht on .

Lawrenceville 400

With the days lasting longer, it's a good time to use the extra hours of sunshine (and the warmer nights) to do some shopping.

In Lawrenceville, there are plenty of chances to do just that during the monthly Shop Late Night in Lawrenceville events. Each month on the second Thursday, shops will stay open until 9 p.m. and will offer special deals, food, refreshments and fun. 

The first late night is this evening. And with temperatures expected to reach the low 70s, it sounds like a good night to shop 'til the sun don't shine!

Now you can shop looks right off the runway (literally)

Written by Sara Bauknecht on .

MBFWBoutique 400

Often times fashionistas have to wait a few months before they can shop the looks featured on the runways of Fashion Week. 

But times are changing. 

In time for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Sydney, Australia, IMG Fashion -- a global leader in fashion show production -- has announced an e-commerce shop where people across the world can purchase pieces as they come down the catwalk.

The debut of the MBFW Boutique (pictured above) represents a shift in the retail world to a "see now, buy now" mentality.

"The initiative helps convert consumer interest into commercial outcomes for our designers and provides an added value and measurable benefit of staging their MBFW show," says IMG Fashion events and properties senior vice president and managing director Catherine Bennett.

To shop select looks from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Australia, visit MBFashionWeek.com. Tweet the word SHOPTHERUNWAY to @MBFWBoutique or text the phrase to +61-471-645-503 are other ways to shop.
