Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending Vogue’s Third Annual Fashion’s Night Out in New York City. Just in case you haven’t heard already, Fashion’s Night Out is a huge fashion extravaganza in the city when most stores throw events, complimentary services are provided, and designers come out to meet and greet. FNO usually takes place at the peak of New York Fashion Week, and in my opinion, it’s like a huge Halloween celebration for adults to have fun and celebrate all things fashion related.
I started my night off downtown in Soho (which was a madhouse). I had the chance to visit the Nicole Miller store, and get lost in the madness of fans standing outside of the Kardashian’s Dash New York Store. Later in the night, I headed eastside where things were a little calmer. The Mulberry store had free face painting for the night, and it was like a huge party in the Henri Bendel store!
All around the city, there were A list appearances from celebs like Nikki Minaj, Drake, Justin Beiber, Angela Simmons, and Rachel Zoe. There were also a few stores that did it really big for the night, and attracted the masses. Some of the biggest celebrations were at Sephora, John Frieda’s Salon, Dolce & Gabanna, Dash, Sak’s Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Chanel, and Teen Vogue’s block party featuring complimentary Essie mani’s. There was even a Marc by Marc Jacobs Accessories truck!
If you didn’t get a chance to visit this year, make sure to make plans for next year. Check out some of the images captured in the link posted below. 2 Snaps for Fashion’s Night Out!!!
