You’re Invited To Fashion's Night Out

The fine, fashionable, and utterly fabulous folks behind Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week are proud to bring the fashion loving masses Fashion’s Night Out on Thursday, September 10th. They’ve invited every fashion retailer across the five boroughs of Manhattan to encourage the fun of fashion again—flagships, tiny boutiques, massive department stores, young designers, mainstream chains, and niche luxury names alike—by keeping their doors open late on the evening of September 10th and to implement creative customer experiences welcoming all.

Over 700 retailers and designers across New York City are confirmed participants in Fashion’s Night Out. Most events will take place from 6:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. On Fashion’s Night Out, every participating location is open to anyone and everyone so grab a friend or two and go for it. Neither tickets nor invitations are required to join in the Fashion’s Night Out festivities.

And what’s a big event without a commemorative t-shirt? You can be sure that the very cool tee (shown here) created for this event rocks. At only $30 for short-sleeve and $35 for long-sleeve, made of pima cotton/modal and available in unisex sizes XS through L, they are a bargain with 40% of retail proceeds from the sale of the Fashion’s Night Out T-shirt to be donated by the retailers to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center.

Here's a sneak peek at some scheduled events:
  • The Oscar Blandi Salon will offer an exclusive Blowout Lessons and Bellinis Master Class at 9:00 p.m. This service teaches clients the necessary skills to style and maintain the look of a salon blowout at home.
