It is September and not only does it mean the weather is beginning to change and school is back but it means FASHION WEEK!
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYC September 10th through the 17th is a HUGE ordeal in the fashion world as we all know. There has been preparations for this one week happening since last year! All of the best and highly-known designers will be showing their Spring 2010 collection in the Tents @ Brynt Park and only those blessed with invitations will be able to view them. Right now I can only dream of being able to attend a show, however, soon enough I will get an invite! (LoL)
BUT there is one event that no one needs and invitation to and it is Fashion's Night Out
This year Vogue and the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) are holding an event called Fashion's Night Out. This event taking place Thursday September 10th from 6pm-11pm is to promote retail, restore consumer confidence and celebrate fashion. It is an international event and with be happening in 13 other fashion capitals. This is a one time event where participating retailers will keep their stores and boutiques open late for more shopping and they will have special events going on such as meet and greets with designers like Oscar De La Renta, Alexander Wang; celebrity appearances, mini-concerts, make-overs, signings, fashion shows and so much more! This will be held through-out all New York boroughs but especially in Manhattan of course. They are even having a city-wide clothing drive to raise money for AIDS charities annnnnnd some proceeds from that night will go to the 9/11 memorial.

The whole idea is to promote shopping and to show people that there is no need to be scared of shopping it is the only way the economy will get back in shape! I love it... I think it will be very fun and we will be helping a cause and that's always a good reason for anything in my book!
I will be attending I just have to create an itinerary of what spots I want to hit up and what events I want to see!
