Everyone knows that the best cardio is a night full of shopping! After spending the evening with your friends finding all the right pieces for your wardrobe, a great way (and the only way in our opinion 😉) to refuel is with delicious bites and sips from some of your favorite Triangle restaurants!

We are beyond thrilled for Raleigh Fashion Fest coming soon to downtown Raleigh’s City Market! Celebrating fashion and food in both Raleigh and across North Carolina, the festival brings together more than 40 locally owned boutiques and vendors. Attendees can pursue and purchase a variety of clothing, shoes, jewelry, gifts, hair and beauty products and more for the ultimate shopping experience.

The night features a collaborative boutique runway fashion show put on by Models For Charity that will showcase inspiring fall fashion looks from participating boutiques and vendors

Now, let's talk food. With 8 delicious restaurants participating, you will not leave hungry! Here’s the yummy line-up:
