Las Vegas Fashion Week infiltrates the Strip and the Las Vegas Convention Center this week, meaning 80,000 very trendy people will be found all over the city. And that means parties galore, with brands bringing in special guests such as Ice Cube, $10,000 gift card giveaways, fashion line launches and more.
We've rounded up a handful of must-stops hosted by cult-favorite designers, cool-kid brands and music superstars. There's a good mix of both public and invite-only events this time around, so we suggest going into this with a YOLO mentality and attempting to catch them all. Ready?
