So I know I have been MIA, with fashion week around the corner life has been a little crazy. What better way to start the week than a night for all fashionistas and then some. Grab your LBD, a girlfriend or two, and your wallet because this night is sure to make fashion fun again! American Vogue along with NYC & Company, the City of New York, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America have collaborated in their efforts to wake up the consumers of the New York City marketplace.
In a global initiative, Fashion’s Night Out retailers will host sweepstakes, complimentary cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, musical appearances, makeovers and more. Catch some of these highlights in NYC… the notorious Pontani Sisters and their burlesque dance at Hugo Boss Meatpacking, Cha Cha lessons at Kate Spade 5th Avenue, Fortune Tellers and Tarot card readers at Moschino West 14th Street, custom designed leather jackets at Helmut Lang Washington Street, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen guest bartending at Bergdorf Goodman, shop an interactive installation of looks styled by fashion insiders and an accessory bar at Theory Gansevoort and guys head to Buckler Gansevoort for Todd Sweeny haircuts. The list goes on and on, see all those participating at FashionsNightOut.com.
While bopping about the city’s best boutiques, be sure to pick up a commemorative t-shirt, 40 percent of retail proceeds will be donated to fund the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center. Fashion that gives back, now that’s worth investing in!
