Don’t hate me all you non-NY’ers… there are plenty events all around and abroad that don’t happen in my lovely Big Apple that I get sad about – but being that I don’t want to turn into a complainer blog, I continue with the events that I can go to :). There… better?
This event, though occuring in NYC, is also happening abroad. In the likes of the UK, India, Italy, Russia, Japan, etc.
Some info about the event from the site:
In a global initiative to promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion, U.S. and international editions of Vogue are coordinating evening extravaganzas in their respective world fashion capitals.
In the United States, American Vogue has joined with NYC & Company, the City of New York, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to enliven again the consumer spirit that churns the economy and boosts the local industry of America’s fashion capital, New York City. Next only to finance, fashion is the second-largest sector of industry in New York City—the headquarters of more than 800 fashion companies employing 175,000 people and generating $10 billion in total wages. At City Hall’s May 20 press conference to announce Fashion’s Night Out, Vera Wang said, “To put it bluntly, if people don’t shop, people lose their jobs.”
The first evening of New York Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out will encompass festivities galore— from inventive window displays to model and celebrity appearances. Champagne may flow; hors d’oeuvres may be passed. Rumors of musical performances, downtown barbecues, shoe capsules, limited-edition rings, and sweepstakes abound. Apparently there will be makeovers, brow bars, and haircut stations at sundry spots, too.
I’ll be posting about this event up until it comes up and then a bit more after, so be patient with me y’all.
Let me know if the event is happening anywhere near you, and if you plan on checking it out!
