I've been waiting for months... Today is Fashion Night Out in NYC!
It's an event started by Vogue along with NYC & Company, the City of New York and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Paired with the beginning of 2010 spring fashion week, the event was designed to encourage consumers to shop again after this tough year of recession.
Not that I need someone pulling my arm, but 700 retailers will be participating with all sorts of festivities such as give-aways, celebrity appearances, and musical performances. You can also be sure to grabs some champagne and hors d'oeuvres and perhaps a make over too! 40% of the proceeds from the sale of Fashion Night T-shirts will be donated to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.
In addition, a city wide clothing drive will take place, donating new and gently used clothing to the NYC Aids Fund.
This is such a fabulous event for the city! I just can't wait for all of the festivities tonight!!
