New York Fashion Week is among us and New York will be all fashion all the time for a solid week. That means for us common folk, who may not be going to the shows, that we get our one night of glory tonight. At Fashion’s Night Out stores all over the New York City area throw parties inside their stores with different promotional incentives all vying for your attention. If you still don’t have your FNO schedule all planned out, never fear, I have chosen some of my favorites and broken them down into categories to cater to the various reasons why you may want to participate in FNO. Last year I saw Alexa Chung at Madewell and Mary-Kate and Ashley at Elizabeth and James. I was clearly going for the “celeb sightings,” but this year I think I’ll be in it for the giveaways (The bike 3.1 Philip Lim is giving away is all mine!). So choose your categories or mix and match and enjoy the glorious night of fashion.
