All fashion lover’s worldwide look forward to two events yearly. All the fashion week’s and FASHION’S NIGHT OUT. I’d like to believe FASHION’S NIGHT OUT is one of the days out of the year that fashion lover’s get together and enjoy nothing but fashion. Even if you don’t know each other it’s a way to meet fellow fashionista’s and talk about fashion. I know some cities and stores do special events for it. I remember Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas made a whole spectacle out of it at The Forum last year. This year FASHION’S NIGHT OUT is on September 6th and I’m sure it will be a fabulous evening!
Fashion’s Night Out is hosting its third-year event this September and if you’re in the New York City area on the 8th of next month, downtown NYC is where you want to be. Fashion Night Out consists of a grand party throughout Fashion Capital, U.S.A (it’s even carried across the country and abroad via the world wide web). The joy of designers, celebrities, music, events and of course, massive amount of shopping, is shared throughout a large sum of fashionista’s alike; hence, Fashion’s Night Out is one of the largest fashion party’s of the year.
FNO in NYC is a whirlwind of activities. It’s easy to get caught up in the major department stores that have designers, models, celebrities, games, giveways and more, but some of the hottest venues can be in the boutiques. From the huge event at Hayden Harnett in Brooklyn, to SOHO street parties, Midtown QVC pop-up at Rockefeller Center to the Meatpacking Districts pure unadulterated frenzy of fashion, you simply want to be everywhere. Too bad, it’s only five hours long or I would do my best to do just that! Instead, I researched the FNO website and had to carefully edit my priority list of places and people I wanted to see.
Although I’m still recovering, Fashion’s Night Out in New York has to be one of the best parties on the planet! If you haven’t heard of this major event, you are truly missing out. Stores and venues across the city, New York in this instance, celebrate fashion like no other time of the year. This tremendous brainchild of Vogue’s Anna Wintour was an instant and smashing success! Anyone can attend. And there is no other happening where you can witness Coca Rocha posing for the masses, Karolina Kurkova playing game show host, Donna Karen dancing the night away and a host of amazing designers on hand for you to meet and talk about your favorite styles.
All of the major department stores have dozens of activities within. Sak’s, Barney’s, Bergdorf’s, Nordstrom, Henri Bendel all play host to special activities like playing dress up in a designer outfit and walking the red carpet while posing for internationally renowned photographers! It’s dress up time at it’s finest.
