For all you fashionable darlings who are scratching your heads trying to figure out how to celebrate Fall Fashion Week can search out the events in your area at The Fashion's Night Out Events Website. There, a list of all of the fabulous design stars, including Jenna Lyons of J.Crew, gifts with purchase at most stores, performances from bands, discounts, in-store makeovers, and free give-aways are detailed and can be added to an itinerary. Manolo Blahnik promises "special appearances", as does Madewell, and I'm crossing my fingers for an SJP and Katie Holmes sighting. Can't make it to the Big Apple in time? (Neither can I, don't be discouraged) Check out the local events listed under the FNO Elsewear Tab. In Florida, Aventura Mall or The Shoppes at Bal Harbour will be the most fashionable venues for the evening, with extended mall hours and special sales. Miami Design District is also hosting an all-out event, details at the site here. Check the listing for your area, don't miss this once-a-year event! If you still can't make it, make it a GNI (Girls Night In) by supporting the cause by purchasing the FNO Official T-Shirts where forty percent of the proceeds benefit the The New York City AIDS Fund in The New York Community Trust. Then, grab a bottle of wine, your favorite girlfriends, and your computer and go to CBS.com and catch up on all things fashion as the fabulous Vogue Contributing Editor Andre Leon Tally shows Erica Hill the best places to shop, the latest fashions, and his personal favorites.
To help support the cause even further (and add a little fun to your night) grab a camera and snap your best catwalk move and send it to me at email@example.com for a chance to win the FNO Tank Top!
