FNO- FASHION'S NIGHT OUT- 9/8/11- TIME TO SHOP
Whether you are in NYC, LA, BOSTON, Japan, Madrid (and many other cities around the world), you gotta shop on September 8th. It's Fashion's Night Out! What started 2 years ago as a way to get consumers excited about shopping again during recession times has turned into a powerhouse of excitement that you do NOT want to miss.
There are so many ways to enjoy this event. You can to one-stop-shop it in a department store where each floor has events throughout the night. You can go door to door in Soho like you are fashion trick-or-treating. You can even enjoy block parties or hunt for pop-up-shops. There is so much to do and see! Meet your favorite designer! Last year, I joined in a dance part in the Vera Wang store in Soho with Vera herself! Get FREE swag just for popping in a store: T-shirts, Champagne, etc. From celeb sightings to hot DJ's spinning new tunes, to fashion consulting to exclusive merchandise, the possibilities are ENDLESS! Keep checking online with your favorite retailers to see what surprises they have in store, and make sure to get there early! There will be crowds!
Here's my Hot List of must do's for 9/8/11. But there's SOOO much more! Plus, 40% of purchases made on FNO merch. goes to charity.
