It’s that time of year again: Fashion’s Night Out is just around the corner. It seems like every store and e-commerce site on earth has activities planned—find them all at www.fashionsnightout.com—but as for us, we’ve got our itineraries set. Below, a few New York favorites. See you there.
Bergdorf Goodman BG has an all-star lineup of fashion folks making appearances at the store throughout the night, including Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, and Glenn O’Brien. But we’re most excited about the designer dog show, with Joseph Altuzarra, James Mischka and Mark Badgely, and Reem Acra all hitting the runways with their pets, judged by Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig.
Bloomingdale’s Alexander Wang, GQ‘s Best New Menswear Designer of the Year, and the runners up, including Michael Bastian and Patrik Ervell, will be on hand to debut the capsule Dockers pieces they designed.
Bruce Weber Legendary lensman Bruce Weber, Nan Bush, and friends will be on hand at The Standard Hotel Biergarten, where Weber is debuting limited-edition new underthings from his Weberbilt collection and serving vegan cookies from 6 to 9 p.m.
Chanel At the 57th Street store, you can design your own monogrammed Chanel bag in the label’s very first handbag studio.
D&G Dolce & Gabbana celebrates Fashion’s Night Out with personalized T-shirts featuring guests’ portraits shot by celebrity and backstage photographer Roxanne Lowit.
Kirna Zabête Get there fast-exclusive designs from Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung, Peter Som, and Thakoon will be on sale at this high-end downtown shop. Did we mention a Proenza bag for $300?
Macy’s Herald Square Three words: Anna Dello Russo. (OK, two more: Karolina Kurkova.)
Manolo Blahnik Manolo, milkshakes, and SJP. That’s what’s on the docket at the designer’s 54th Street store, where Blahnik and Sarah Jessica Parker will be debuting their shoe collaboration. There will also be Manolo milkshake trucks stationed around the city throughout the day and night.
Marc Jacobs The designer is hosting a carnival-themed block party on Bleecker Street. At Bookmarc, photographer David Armstrong will be signing copies of his new book, 615 Jefferson Avenue, and for those inclined to be in front of the lens, there will a photo booth in place. Plus, there’s a Spin-to-Win wheel.
Opening Ceremony at the Ace Hotel This Argentine-inspired carnival, with live dancers (outfitted by Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Suno) and games, is sure to draw the usual hip OC gang. And an unusual addition: Miss Piggy, who will make a special appearance to unveil the new Muppets x OC collection, set to bow November 23.
Alexa Chung, Jen Brill, and Elettra Wiedemann will be manning the turntables at the designer’s Meatpacking district store. Where the cool girls go, a chic crowd is likely to follow. Sip on eco mojitos (how very Stella) and pick up her limited-edition FNO charm bracelet (above).
