Move over Fashion Week, there’s a new girl in town and she’s here for one night only. She’s full of style, energy and attracts New York’s finest. Introducing Fashion’s Night Out, a celebrated evening of style and star-studded events, crafted to support the fashion and retail industries around the world. On September 8, for the third year in a row, designers, models, fashion editors, celebrities, fashionistas and socialites gather throughout New York City for fashion’s sake. Like a haute Halloween for jet-set adults, this year’s Fashions Night Out will undoubtedly include a who’s who of New York, dressed to the nines and roaming the streets from party to party, satisfying their fashion cravings. From exclusive, limited edition items to DJs, photo booths and more, we’ve rounded up the can’t-miss events of this year’s Fashion’s Night Out.
