Not everyone is lucky enough to make it to New York Fashion Week but that doesn't mean that you can't celebrate it in your own way. Gather your girlfriends for a night of cocktails and fashion movies and have your own fashion movie night.
There are hundreds of fashion movies to choose from, just check Netflix and IMDB and see. To make your decision easier decide whether you want to go with fluffy fashion movies or are you preferring something more realistic and documentary. Whichever movies you decide to go with remember that they will set the mood for your evening.
For fluffy fashion movies choose movies like 'Clueless', 'Zoolander', 'The Devil Wears Prada', 'Sex in the City' 'Annie Hall' or even' Breakfast at Tiffany's'. With these movies it's all about having fun and enjoying the styles and fashions portrayed; like eye candy for the fahionista. If you decide to go with more of a documentary twist on your evening there are many movies to choose from about your favorite designers. Some that you may want to check out are 'The September Issue', 'Bill Cunningham New York', 'Valentino: The Last Emperor', 'The Tents', 'Coco before Chanel', 'Seamless', 'Yves Saint Laurent 5 avenue Marceau 75116 Paris' and 'Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton'.
Once you've decided on your movie choices it's time to focus on the cocktails. Serve unique fashionista cocktails using EFFEN Vodka for an exciting twist to normal martinis and drinks. EFFEN Vodka comes in five exciting flavors that include EFFEN Vodka, EFFEN Black Cherry Vodka, EFFEN Dutch Raspberry Vodka, EFFEN Cucumber Vodka and their all new EFFEN Salted Caramel Vodka. EFFEN Vodkas are smooth, crisp with a refreshing finish that complement and complete any cocktail. (For recipes make sure you click through the list!)
Make sure you have a simple snack to go with your cocktails. Popcorn is the best go to snack when it comes to watching movies and a perfect complement to a sweet martini. If you're guest love the salt and sweet combination make sure you also have pretzels, assorted nuts and even gourmet salt and vinegar chips on hand. Simple cones can be made with parchment paper for individual servings. If you're guest prefer something sweet instead consider whipping up some EFFEN Vodka infused sorbet or an EFFEN Vodka milkshake.
Set up your serving table and use chalkboards with the recipes posted so guests can make their own drinks and snacks. If they prefer soft drinks with their vodka let your guests know to try mixing 1 oz of vodka to their drinks and see what unique mixes they come up with. For an easy DIY for chalkboards click here.
Once you have everything set up and all your friends are settled in with their drinks and snacks, it's time to hit 'Play' and enjoy your own fashion night at home!
