Fab Event: Fashion Night Out
The global celebration of Fashion comes to NYC on September 10th. What a great way to kick-off fashion week! The city will be buzzing with millions of visitors and during FNO over 700 clothing stores and designers across all boroughs will stay open until 11pm, so people can shop, shop, shop. Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers, and New York & Co have combined their efforts to get the American consumer shopping again.
There are several ways to get involved with FNO, you can buy an official t-shirt at any of the participating retailers: http://www.fashionsnightout.com/tshirts.php. 40% of the proceeds will benefit the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. There will also be a city-wide clothing drive: http://www.fashionsnightout.com/clothingdrive.php. All clothing will be donated to the NYC AIDS Fund whom will then distribute to 24 AIDS-focused charities in the city. And lastly, my favorite thing to do, volunteer! They're going to need a lot of volunteers to help with a clothing drive that big, if your interested: http://www.fashionsnightout.com/volunteer.php.
