Fashion's Night Out- The Game Plan

As some of you may have heard, Fashion's Night Out is an event where all who are in town for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week come out and play. Stores are open until 11pm, and special events occur at retail venues all over New York City. It is a chance to see, do, and shop till you drop.

While navigating the endless list of events can get overwhelming, I have chosen a couple of key locations to hit up on my tour. Here are the spots that I plan on attending. Barneys and Saks descriptions taken from the Fashion's Night Out official website.

Barney's- "On September 10, Barneys New York at Madison and Sixty-first will be transformed into a street fair of designer personal appearances and creative events. Customers will have the opportunity to shop and mingle with Isabel Toledo, Marcus and David from Rag & Bone, Narciso Rodriguez, Amanda Brooks, Waris, Thom Browne, Jonathan Adler, Lisa Perry, Alexander Wang, the Row’s Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and many more. In addition to the personal appearances, Barneys will stage a roster of happenings. Wool and the Gang will teach knitting; Lipstick Queen Poppy King will offer “lip readings”; Vogue editor Tonne Goodman will curate a fashion green market; Gianluca Isaia will offer Neapolitan delicacies; Adam Kimmel will show a Gerard Malanga video installation; Loomstate will customize T-shirts; Leonid Khankin will host an Ernst Benz watch trunk show; Alabama Chanin will host a sewing circle; Juan Carlos Obando will give salsa lessons."

Saks Fifth Avenue- "Saks Fifth Avenue is excited to participate in the first ever "Fashion’s Night Out." HIGHLIGHTS: Saks will transform its New York Flagship into the evening’s hottest spot, complete with a red carpet and stantions leading the way to the store’s entrances on Fifth Avenue. Many of Saks’s celebrated designers will make personal appearances that evening including Donna Karan— who will inaugurate her new in store shop at 5 p.m. as a kick-off to the evening— Carolina Hererra, Elie Tahari Giuseppe Zanotti, Josie Natori, Peter Som, Ralph Rucci, Geren Ford, Shoshanna Gruss, Kay Unger, the designers of jewelry line Faraone Mennella and many more. The biggest names in beauty such as Aerin Lauder, Bobbi Brown and Fredrick Fekkai will also visit Saks, along with world renowned makeup and beauty artists representing the foremost beauty brands. Customers can look forward to over 1,000 cosmetic giveaways."

Scoop NYC with the gals of Purple Lab, Cupcakes by Cupcake Republic, and Veronica Varlow
My love for Purple Lab knows no bounds, and it is also no secret that I absolutely look up to founder Karen Robinovitz. That being said, it is only natural that I would want to stop by Scoop NYC to spend some time with the Purple Labbers, Karen, and the stunning Miss Veronica Varlow. With cupcakes, lipgloss, and lychee martinis- a total match made in heaven.

Will you be attending Fashion's Night Out? If so, which venues do you plan on hitting up?

I'm going to be all over the place, I don't know where to start?!
I think Soho will be the start and then making my way uptown baby!
