Fashion’s Night Out 2012 Page 1
Despite the mob of fashionable girls (and one adorable little boy) snapping photos with and of Rebecca Minkoff at Saks Fifth Avenue during Fashion’s Night Out, the designer seemed relaxed and ease. Almost eerily so, and she later admitted that it’s because she’s completely, 100 percent finished with her spring 2013 collection, which we’re livestreaming at 3 p.m. this afternoon.
The countdown is on for Fashion’s Night Out, and with more than 700 retailers keeping their doors open late tomorrow evening, it can be a little tough to navigate all of the deals. Luckily, we’ve divided the best of the bunch into three major shopping ‘hoods: Meatpacking District, Soho, and Midtown/Upper East Side, so you can plan your night of boozing, celeb-spotting, and retail accordingly.
As much as we are dreading the booze-filled celeb spotting that is Fashion’s Night Out, we can’t help but be a teeny tiny bit excited for September 6. Especially when this year’s merch is so cool! In addition to the official FNO apparel and accessories, a whole slew of retailers are rolling out special items just for one night, and some are even extending the wares to e-commerce. Of course, there are thousands of special FNO merch, but we’ve whittled it down to the essential buys of the night. Bonus: one’s even totally free!
Move over, red lipstick. Azealia Banks has just teamed up with M.A.C. on a plum lipstick that’ll surely be this season’s go-to shade.
As much as we’re dreading this year’s Fashion’s Night Out, we were pretty amazed at its new PSA. It failed to hype us up for FNO, but it did make us giggle. The normal fashion crew of Marc Jacobs, Karlie Kloss, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Paré, and Solange Knowles make appearances in the video. But wait, hold the phone — is that Tyson Chandler?? Yeah, he’s in it too! And why is Darren Criss singing a Madonna song?
Fashion’s Night Out is back for its fourth year of
shopping booze-filled celeb watching. We’ve already rounded up a handy list of the best events in New York City, but in case you were still planning to sit at home with a tub of AmeriCone Dream, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift want to try and convince you to partake in Retail Scream 4.
Our enthusiasm for Fashion’s Night Out pretty much went out the window the third time someone nearly knocked us over last year trying to elbow their way to the in-store bar, but we realize there are those of you with higher crowd thresholds and a greater will to meet Kim Kardashian, so for you we’ve got some details for September 6th!
Well folks, it’s happening. The fourth edition of what we here at Styleite refer to as Retail Scream has planted its flag in your fashion week calendar. Fashion’s Night Out 2012 will take place on Sept. 6.
