Fashion's Night Out: Shopping Will Be Fun Again
August 26, 2009
Anna Wintour and Vogue, the CFDA, and New York & Co. are encouraging New Yorkers to go shopping by sponsoring Fashion’s Night Out on September 10. Stores will stay open late, there’ll be parties and model appearances, and (hopefully) the drinks will be flowing. In case you live in New York or will be around on the 10th, get excited. Here are the events we recommend you scurry to after work on this new biggest shopping day of the year:
1. One of our favorite designers for edgy fall looks, Rag & Bone, will turn their SoHo store into an Irish Pub for the night – and they’ll be giving out free beer to thirsty shoppers.
2. Shop with the likes of Narciso Rodriguez and man of the moment, Alexander Wang, at the Barney’s flagship on Madison. The store is also offering free knitting classes and will host a “sewing circle” if you want to take matters into your own hands.
3. Check out Tory Burch’s meatpacking district boutique; she’ll be hosting a block party outside her store. The chic Mexican restaurant La Esquina will be providing barbecue while DJ Cassidy will supply the music.
4. Join Rebecca Taylor for candy and cocktails at her store on Mott Street – she’s offering a gift with every purchase and $100 off every $350 spent on her Fall/Winter collection.
For more info check out this video detailing all the fun and be sure to follow Fashion’s Night Out on twitter.
Of course, we’d recommend checking out Anna Wintour in The September Issue no matter where you live. It opens in New York on August 28th and everywhere else on September 11th.
