Do you know what you're doing on the night September 10th? Chances are it involves shopping, if Anna Wintour has anything to do with it. In New York and and 12 other cities around the world, Vogue is spearheading the effort behind Fashion's Night Out. (Too bad we advise: Don't Shop.) Stores will be open later, many will be serving up food and drinks and offering special gifts with purchase. Best of all, designers and celebs will be out en masse to support the effort. A few can't misses in our hometown:
Barney's: Mary Kate and Ashley Olson, Narciso Rodriguez, Isabel Toledo, Jonathan Adler, and more.
Bergdorf Goodman: Hosting a designer cook off between Cynthia Rowley, Peter Som and judged by Padma Lakshi, Zac Posen will be painting in the windows, the Olsen twins are scheduled to make an appearance (good thing the stores are close!)
Saks Fifth Avenue: Carolina Herrera, Chris Benz, Donna Karan, Bobbi Brown, Frederic Fekkai and models Coco Rocha and Daria Werbowry
Intermix: in Soho (98 Prince Street) Sienna and Savannah Miller with music by DJ Harley Viera Newton and Cassie Coane
Jeffrey: Hugh Jackman is scheduled to show, as is Jason Wu.
For a complete list of participating stores, check out Fashion's Night Out. Can't make it to an event? Order the T-shirt on Gilt.com.
