That and so much more…I’m talking about Fashion’s Night Out and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week… Hello September, could you BE more amazing already?! Unfortunately, I wasn’t
cool enough able to attend either, but one day… one day, I will and it will be glorious. Hey, if I can’t be there, I’ll blog here…right? Right.
For those of you who don’t know, Fashion’s Night Out, of FNO for short, occurs once a year across the globe. Jet-setters get your passports ready, FNO spans 19 countries from Australia to China, to Italy to Russia, to the UK and back to the good old US of A. FNO events showcase designers, models, fashion editors, and celebrities and was created in 2009 (2011 in Boston) by American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC and Co. and the City of New York. According to NYCgo.com, FNO “began as a collaboration intended to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping.” Judging by its overwhelming publicity and countless instagram and twitter photos, it looks like the objective was certainly met.
This was just a small prequel to some fantastic Mercedes Benz Fashion Week coverage coming soon! Until then, enjoy the fall-ish weather if you’ve got it, step on a few crunchy leaves (with a cute boot of course), and continue to drool over all the great fall patterns, colors, and fabrics, I know I will.
