R-Rated costumes, fuchsia hair, sequins, sparkle, fascinators (a la the Duchess of Cambridge) and outrageous shoes!!! Just what you’d expect for Fashion’s Night Out. Good taste and bad taste in extremes! In other words the party rocked. Since a picture is worth a thousand words I’ll stop the blah blah blah and just get to the showstoppers!
But first: next years FNO to-do list:
1). Get DRESSED UP! I mean REALLY REALLY decked out in something I would never wear to anything but a FABULOUS party during Fashion Week!
2). Get a better camera and learn how to use it!!!!
3) BYOCG. Bring my own champagne glass. No one seemed to run out of bubbly, but glasses were in short supply!
Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) is a one-night event that takes place annually. It was started in New York as a way of helping the industry, which was in serious trouble because of the recession. Things have improved a little since then but the industry is still weak.
FNO sponsors the events, but each retailer creates their own party for the evening. They bring in style and makeup professionals, designers, experts,celebrities, DJs, and lots of other entertainment. It’s a way to create good will for the stores, good buzz for the clothing designers, and a good time for the guests.
Since its inception in 2009, FNO has grown and expanded outside New York and across the US. We encourage you to participate locally. Events are happening everywhere. Check here to see what’s happening at your local stores and malls. You don’t have to spend a fortune to make a difference. The fashion industry employs a lot of people. Every item you purchase supports hundreds of thousands of them.
We will be participating this year in New York by visiting several events and sharing our adventures with you here.
