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.
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.
Dear Organizers of Fashion’s Night Out, We heard today that you’ve decided to throw another edition of FNO in September 2012. Congratulations on making up your collective mind! Now what can we do to change it?
Fashion’s Night Out might be fun, but let’s face facts: It costs a lot of money to pull off. What started out as Anna Wintour‘s novel economic stimulus package for an ailing retail industry has now become one big night of partying, celeb stalking that involves little to no shopping whatsoever. And some retailers are downright upset that they aren’t seeing a real return on the investment they make in FNO.
When you’re talking about strong, powerful females in fashion, Diane von Furstenberg really takes the cake. In other words: we love her, which is why we made her SoHo boutique our first top at Fashion’s Night Out. Von Furstenberg had a few things to celebrate in addition to her awesomeness, namely her new fragrance, Diane, which she was enthusiastically spritzing on anyone who came within a five foot radius. But this is no ordinary perfume; as she conspiratorially told us, DVF puts a lot more than just fragrance in that gorgeous gold bottle.
If you like your words minced, chances are you probably can’t stomach Cathy Horyn‘s blog entries at On The Runway, where this morning she took an explicitly clear stance on Fashion’s Night Out. This year, Cathy is not a fan.
Like all production teams with a long lead time, the people behind 2011′s edition of Fashion’s Night Out are already hard at work smoothing out the details for this fall’s nighttime shopping extravaganza. And for the third installment of the now-global event, things are going down a little differently.
What do you get when you combine 170 looks, a double-decker bus full of supermodels, a surprise performance by N.E.R.D. and Pharrell, and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour? The largest public runway show in New York City history, of course. While the guestlist included such style luminaries as Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, and Olivia Palermo, the runway casting read like a who’s who of the modeling world.
If you live in New York or follow fashion in any capacity, you’d have to be living under a rock to not know that September 10th marks the second annual Fashion’s Night Out — Anna Wintour‘s all night event celebrating the beginning of Fashion Week, fall fashion, and most importantly, helping out the New York City AIDS fund and the fashion industry at large.
If you don’t have hours to plow through the hundreds of events planned for this year’s Fashion’s Night Out, we’ve gone ahead and done the work for you. Here’s Styleite’s location-based guide to the best events of the evening.
If you’ve ever had dreams of BryanBoy commenting on your sartorial choices, you’re may be in luck. Today, the blogger announced that he will officially be part of New York’s Fashion’s Night Out. He may have spent last year’s FNO “loitering downtown on Bleecker Street” like your average pedestrian, but this year, he’ll be hanging out on the Upper East Side.
No one ever accused Anna Wintour of thinking small. So it comes as no surprise that as the creator of Fashion’s Night Out, she would want to go bigger and better in 2010. In an effort to do just that, the event’s planning committee has announced that they will be staging the biggest runway show ever in Manhattan.
