Last September, a gentleman friend sent me a text message wondering why there were larger than usual throngs of stylish women bearing shopping bags storming the streets of Manhattan. Handsome, if you're reading this, the event is called Fashion's Night Out and it is happening again on September 6th in NYC and beyond. Prepare yourself!
Purchase an item from the 2012 FNO collection, like this cool canvas tote bag for $50, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the New York City AIDS Fund in the NY Community Trust.
Fashion's Night Out celebrates fashion and supports retail with exciting events that include designer appearances, celebrity guests, fashion shows and musical performances. In the United States, the program is a collaboration between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York.
One of the FNO events that caught my eye is Fekkai Mademoiselle hosted by actress AnnaSophia Robb (star of the CW’s upcoming new series The Carrie Diaries - a prequel to Sex and the City) at Frederic Fekkai Fifth Avenue at Henri Bendel. The Mademoiselle Package includes a choice of a New York signature blow-out, St. Barths’s Sexy Beach Waves or the perfectly undone chignon along with a makeup application and Ciate’s Caviar Manicure for $75. Or, you can opt for the Petite Mademoiselle - a customized Nail Rock Designer Nail Wrap Application ($25). Fekkai Mademoiselle will take place on Sept. 6, 5pm - 8pm. To schedule an appointment, call 212-753-9500.
