Mark your calendars: NY's Fashion's Night Out

Hello September! Fall weather, Labor Day weekend, and NY Fashion Week are just a few things we are looking forward to.

But we are truly anxious and excited about the eve of September 10- New York City's Fashion's Night Out. Sponsored primarily by Vogue, this is a global event to celebrate fashion and encourage shopping- China, the UK, Spain, India and Greece are just a few of the countries participating.
Basically, shoppers, this night is for you: all the events are free, and NYC is going to be in a tizzy. Over 700 designers are opening up their flagships and stores from 6 pm to 11 pm that night, and you can head over there to be a part of the celebrations- neither tickets nor invitations are necessary. There's going to be great giveaways, surprise performances, complimentary cocktails and major star and model sightings.

Here's why you should be a part of all the FNO fun:

You could get serenaded by Oscar de la Renta at his boutique (66th and Madison)

Get your Sept. issue of Vogue signed by Charlize Theron at Dior (57th and Madison)

Bergdorf Goodman has appearances by Cynthia Rowley, Issac Mizrahi, The Olsen Twins, and more (58th and 5th ave)

Meet Manolo Blahnik at his store (54th and 6th ave)

Meet Serena Williams at NIKEtown ( 57th and 5th ave)

Meet Blake Lively (Serena from GG!) at Ralph Lauren's Bleecker St store

We aren't completely sure how this is actually going to entice customers to shop, but all we know is that we're going to be painting the town red that night!
