Fashion’s Night Out 2011

Share

The scene: Girls in high heels and designer bags lined up along the block and around the corner waiting to get into the Chanel store for Fashion’s Night Out 2010. Many of the shops in Soho have similar lines. I’m dressed in heels too, only, I’m headed to Starbucks for a much needed caffeine fix before I begin the night shift at nymag.com. Someone had to choose the pictures and write captions for the biggest night in shopping. That someone was me and the rest of Fashion Week team at NYmag.com. It was the same for the inaugural Fashion’s Night Out in 2009.

Well, this year, I’m not working the night shift. Woo-hoo! I’m super excited to take part in all of the Fashion’s Night Out fun, instead of just selecting pictures of it. I haven’t finalized my itinerary yet, but here are a few places that I have in mind.


CHANEL

139 Spring Street New York, NY 10012
Get first dibs on the newest Chanel nail polish colors. Remember what a splash Jade made in 2009 and Nouvelle Vague did in 2010?

Christian Cota
215 West 40th Street New York, NY 10018
Meet designer Christian Cota and be one of the first people to get your feet in the Christian Cota for ALDO before they go on sale nationwide. I loved the shoes ALDO provided for Christian’s Fall 2010 presentation. I’m sure the Fall 2011 collection will be just as fabulous.

DKNY
655 Madison Avenue New York, NY 10065
Get a complimentary hair cut from Blind Barber and then strike a pose for the photographers who will be capturing street fashion, Bill Cunningham style, with Pose App.

Lord & Taylor
424 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10018
Dance the night away and get your picture taken with one of O So Chic’s favorite fashionista’s, Solange Knowles, who will be deejaying from 6-9 PM. Designer Tadashi Shoji will also be in attendance. You know he is designing one of my wedding gowns (who cares that I haven’t found a groom yet.)

Macy’s Herald Square
151 West 34th Street New York, NY 10001
Macy’s is bringing out a slew of stars for the big night. Motivation singer, Kelly Rowland will be performing live at the mega store, as well Joss Stone. Designer, Rachel Roy and makeup maven Bobbi Brown will be on hand to meet with consumers. Word on the street is that Sean “Diddy” Combs will be playing billiards against people who purchase Sean John items.

Satya Jewelry
330 Bleeker Street, New York, NY 10014
I am the proud owner of a gold Satya necklace with brown garnets.* The designer told the Hamsa symbol on the pendant is supposed to ward off negative energy. I always get compliments on the necklace, so I’d love to score a similar piece during FNO. Plus, Sephora’s makeup artists will be giving beauty advice and make overs.

Target
1095 6th Avenue at 42nd Street New York, NY 10018
Get your hands on Missoni for Target before everyone else. The collection doesn’t go on sale to the public until September 13th.

Fashion’s Night Out will be going on all around the world. You can find a complete list of Fashion’s Night Out events in your city at http://www.fashionsnightout.com/.

*I bought the Satya necklace with a gift card that was provided by Satya jewelery during a blogger sample sale.
