WILLIAMSBURG — Get your skinny jeans out — Fashion's Night Out is hitting the neighborhood in full force with free-flowing champagne and lingerie and jewelry giveaways.

Where to begin Thursday amid the swirl of style options? DNAinfo.com is here to orient you on your aesthetic pilgrimage — and you never have to cross the bridge to Manhattan.

Head to the Bedford Avenue or Grand Street L subway stops from 6 — 11 p.m., and you'll find plenty within reach.


Fashionistas are joining forces to draw customers with music, giveaways and more on Grand Street. The vintage store Antoinette is offering free wine and rewarding those who spend $50 with free tote bags.

And SCOSHA jewelry shop next door is giving "memory rings" to customers who buy at least $75 worth of goodies.

Down the street, Crif Dogs hot dogs is setting up in front of Bird, a boutique that will include "exclusives" from Loeffler Randall and three other designers, plus new work by artist Amanda Barr

Just steps away, Jane's Closet is offering up snacks, drinks and free gifts "while they last," Fashion's Night Out's website says. And boutique Le Grand Strip is also celebrating the night with a photo shoot and underwear giveaways with purchases. 

BEDFORD AVENUE (and nearby)

The boutique Brooklyn Fox, which opened at the beginning of this summer, is holding its official "opening party" with champagne, music, snacks, staff acting as "personal shoppers" and a $150 gift card raffle, according to its website.

Its lingerie counterpart around the corner is also welcoming guests.

Head towards the waterfront, where Brooklyn Denim Company on North 3rd Street, near Wythe Avenue, is showing off its array of pants, skirts, vests — and even dog wear, according to its Facebook page.

Menswear mecca Cadet (whose clothes are made in a Bushwick warehouse) is also open for the evening, as well as Gray Market, with its understated threads, on Wythe Avenue.
