Fashion’s Night Out has turned out to be quite the international fashion soiree. I, for one, couldn’t be more excited. From New York to Milan, what’s not to love? Celebrities, fashion, shopping and free booze!
In New York, for its third installation, FNO will also kick off New York Fashion Week on Thursday, September 8th at your favorite retailers. If you’ve experienced FNO, you know it’s fabulous sheer madness. (Even for the not so fabulous!) Rub elbows with your favorite celebrities, designers and wannabes while dancing to guest DJs and downing champagne.
For most of us, shopping is always a fun experience. If you love to shop, and the idea of it brings about happy thoughts, then by all means get out there armed with those black AMEX cards because this is definitely the night to do it. If you’re not crazy about the idea of shopping and it more or less causes an onset of anxiety, relax and come out – even if it’s just for the sake of joining in the festivities. The alcohol should help you relax and you can rest easy knowing you’re doing a good thing by helping this economy get back on its feet! Besides, I’ve always felt like shopping and champagne go hand in hand and I’m sure you will agree.
So, ladies and gents, get ready to go out there in your hottest fashions, and devise your plan of attack by going to FNO.com and downloading the app. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter chabellagomez to stay up to date with my Fashion’s Night Out updates and OMG moments as me and my crew hit up the hottest spots in NYC! Who knows, we might run into Uncle Karl once again…
