FNO: SWEET SIXTEEN
On Sept. 6th, Terra Cotta teamed up with Vogue and businesses around the globe for one amazing night of celebration!
Fashion’s Night Out – Four years and going strong! Editors, stars, models, fashionistas, and designers all came together for one of fashion’s most iconic extravaganzas! Last year’s bash featured events in eighteen countries, including 4,500 FNO events in the States alone. Savannahians showed their support with an estimated 5500 people, two runways stages, a half-pipe skate ramp,VIP set-ups from Savannah Magazine, and plenty of pop up stores covering Broughton Street.
Not only we were celebrating the joy of shopping, but also Terra Cotta‘s 16th birthday!
What better way to embrace a sweet sixteen than with delicious cupcakes from Back In The Day, giveaways, live music, and an entire night dedicated to celebrating the customers and clothing that we love.

Can you believe it? Our owner, Christine Nussbaum, opened up shop in a Savannah that is quite different than it is today.She carried luxury soaps, considerate gifts, the fluffiest powder puffs you’ve ever seen, and a handful of comfort wear. Terra Cotta is renowned for excellent taste in quality products. Christine has held onto her belief in beautiful presentation, excellent customer service, and continual generosity.
Customers have been coming for 16 years, just to have a signature gift wrap! As a token of our gratitude, we gave away over 16 HUGE gifts this Fashion Night Out to our fantastic customers!
Have you ever heard the song by Donovan called “I love my shirt?” . We feel this summed up the mood of our FNO evening. Our window was inspired by a 1940’s fall department store painting. Replicating the past, we included styles from some of our favorite vendors including Nic+Zoe, Francis, and Fifteen-Twenty! Racks were bursting into a fall bloom with the latest looks for the season! We have the most incredible selection of vintage inspired coats lined in faux fur, two-toned riding boots, plush cashmeres from Velvet and gorgeous handbags in the most opulent fall shades!
What a great kick-off to fall, filled with laughter and customers truly getting excited about shopping! We were too!
Fashion’s Night Out was made possible by the giving hearts of our fantastic vendors and the generous donations of our local FNO Savannah team! . Check out the photos of our lovely customers wearing the some of giveaways that they won from Fashion’s Night Out.
