Fashion’s Night Out Ramps Up
There are plenty of New York fashion week fêtes next month to look forward to—including a Coco Avant Chanel premiere and the relaunch party for Pop magazine—but, trust us, none of them will compare to the party that the CFDA, NYC & Company, the city of New York, and Vogue have planned for Fashion’s Night Out on September 10. As of last count, over 700 stores across all five boroughs have signed up. And as we’ve mentioned before, designers, celebrities, models, and other fashion types will be making special appearances in an effort to lure shoppers back into the shops, and in the process jumpstart the local economy and benefit charities like the NYC AIDS Fund and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. On our to-do list that night: Hit Kirna Zabête for some face time with Thakoon Panichgul, Jason Wu, and the Proenza Schouler boys; make a stop at Rag & Bone for some free beer and Irish band tunes; and swing by 3.1 Phillip Lim to snap up some limited-edition collector’s items. But the list of fashion boldfacers—from Manolo Blahnik and Michael Kors to Mary-Kate and
Ashley Olsen and Sasha Pivovarova—who will be out and about that night is long. For complete details, visit www.fashionsnightout.com/retailers.
