Fashion’s Night Out – Picture Perfect

Photobucket I am going to bang out a couple more Fashion Night Out posts today and then commence with the Fashion Week coverage.

I’m not checking out too many shows this year, only about 8, the rest I will be checking out on TV and online. It’s started raining around here and it’s almost comical to see people rush to the tents in the midst of rain and shoes that shouldn’t get water, get soaked.

Until then – I have some photographic enjoyment for y’all.

Click ‘Read more’ to see some of my favorite displays on this night out, and for the trend of the day. Can you tell what it is?

I’ll give you a hint – it’s very lifelike.

Escada displays did not disappoint with live models.
My next stop while walking through the wonders of Fifth Avenue, was Tiffany’s. It was funny on this day to balance what you set out to see and all the wondrous things you saw along the way!

Tiffany’s had a red carpet of their own – in Tiffany blue. There were elegant white roses lining the side of the store, and they had larger than life jewelry boxes piled up by the entrance. There was a woman in a bright red jacket walking past and she just looked perfect in the background. I would like to assume that she shops there every week … with that sassy red coat. 🙂

These two were the Tiffany’s models at the entrance. I took the picture thinking – if I have Tiffany’s dolls – they’d look like this.

Next stop for me? Bergdorf Goodman – and by the looks of things – it was all good…man. 🙂 They had the entrance lit up like a red light district club and the displays were beyond fantastic with the fashions and themes. I only snapped up one pic though, because they drew crowds & it was hard to capture!

The next stop was Prada. Totally not on my list (or budget) for the day, I couldn’t help but stop and enjoy the display. They renamed the day to Wolve’s Night Out for a Little Red Riding Hood theme, and had the storytale outfitted in the latest Prada. Additionally? The customers all walked away with a red apple. That… and the drinks 🙂

The last picture is not from the Fifth Avenue store. It’s from the Soho location. I told y’all I really made the rounds on this day! Even though the Soho store wasn’t rocking the same theme, it kind of fit into it, no?

Next stop was Adidas – had to show the love for them in both of the downtown stores. The Soho location had some nice sports-clothes and the other had people outfitted in the old school track suits, with a breakdance dance off inside the store. Additionally – the mannequins inside were rocking it out (but they said no photos inside 😦 ! )

I’m showing y’all a lot of the outside. The insides were just as great at ALL these stores by the way. It’s just I can only post and share so many photos of one day… right?

Well here’s some goodies from Express, their scarf selection in color and texture was bananas.

Done with my Fifth Avenue travels, I had the downtown area to cover. First one to pop my eyes open with excitement? Karen Millen the designer from across the pond got my heart racing with all the designs. I’m so serious. I asked for an application to work there!

The store was also on trend for the day with live models mingling with the mannequins. I loved this model because she was feisty & gave me Fierce with a capital F.

Then I hit up Bleecker St. Let me make something clear. My feet were barrrking the moment I started to head home. Some of my downtown findings were accidental as I made my way over to the PurpleLab event at Scoop.

Yet another store rocking the live model look: Black Fleece

They also had the most creative styling and adoration of the official Fashion’s Night Out tee IMO.

Like it?

Next on the block was Intermix. They had a Barbie display and I wanted to break in and steal the whole darn thing.

Barbie was doing the damn thing with the tee as well.

Another fab display? Vince. I love this brand for the softest of soft fabric. Their tees are pricey but always always worth it, and the rest of the brand follows suit.

I love that they had a Shopper’s Whodunit on display.

What do you think? Did you find anything great?

Tiffany oh Tiffany

Heard from Coutorture & Vogue UK that the economy is creeping its way up into Tiffany & Co.’s doors. The company has reported high losses from last year and is not (surprised?) reducing prices, but rather locations and staffing.

I don’t think I ever saw a sale at Tiffany & Co., and I’m not surprised that this is how they’re handling it.

Sidenote: I work at a non-profit trade organization – we produce trade shows, etc. Some of our exhibitors say they would rather not exhibit at a trade show and use the money they save there to make sure they can pay their employee/their benefits, etc. It all of course depends on the size of the company, etc. etc. I don’t think Tiffany & Co. ever having a big redline sale will be a good look for their image either … so … that’s that!

I know everyone is trying to watch their spending and be greener to save more green, but what about you? Are you feeling the pinch? do you have stories?
