Tonight's the night: with FNO on tap, we've done the legwork for you.
Tonight's the night: with FNO on tap, we've done the legwork for you. All you have to do — other than promise to wear flats — is pick and choose the fashion events that most suit your fancy. It's like being a kid in a candy store. Rachel Zoe and Olivia Palermo will be on-hand to style and celebrate the grand opening of Piperlime's first-ever standalone store, Solange Knowles will be providing a seriously cool DJ-mixed soundtrack at Diane von Furstenberg's Meatpacking District spot, and H&M is employing a fleet of free double-decker buses to take customers to and from selected NYC locations. There's a lot more where that came from, so take a look at our Fashion's Night Out picks below (parsed out by city, no less), and if you're curious to see what else is going on in your city, then head straight to the source.
New York City
- Alexander Wang — Leave it to Mr. Wang to capitalize on those very cool cages he's got set up in his SoHo flagship store — and that's where you come in. He asked FNO participants to get inspired by his Fall 2012 collection, then design an in-store cage installation sketch for an Aug. 22 submission. Since the submit date has passed, we're just excited to see the winning design, which will ultimately be revealed on Fashion's Night Out and will remain up through NY Fashion Week. (103 Grand St., 212-977-9683)
- Alexis Bittar — Indulge in a little retail karaoke and complimentary cocktails at the brand's SoHo boutique. Those who are brave enough to take the mike will also receive a $50 gift certificate to shop — not a bad reason to sing, right? (465 Broome St., 212-625-8340)
- Alice + Olivia — Whether you head to Stacy Bendet's 14th Street location, her midtown oasis, or her Madison Avenue spot, you'll be treated to the ultimate girls' night out. On the docket? You can dance along to awesome '80s jams, watch slumber-party chick flicks, get your hair braided, make a charm bracelet, and get your palm read — and that's just the beginning.
