So earlier today we did a post on what he had heard through the silken grapevine on the lineup of acts for this year's much anticipated Fashion' Night Out. Now that the official CFDA press conference on FNO has adjourned, we have to fill in a few more of the blanks. Reportedly, this year there will be about 1,000 participating stores in the New York City area, compared to last year's 800. Can you imagine it any bigger than it was???
The event will kick off to the kick off will take place three days before the actual Fashion's Night Out on September 7, when a huge public fashion show, involving over 200 top models and 1,500
random ticket-holding guests, will take place at New
York Fashion Week's new home, Lincoln Center. The clothing will be a concoction of pieces from different designers, handpicked by Vogue editors to display key fall 2010 trends. Throw in a line of FNO t-shirts and hoodies and a one hour CBS Special and the hype for this kickoff event is rivaling New York Fashion Week itself!
Tickets for the giant public fashion show start at $25 and will be available at the Lincoln Center Box Office starting at 10 a.m. on Thursday, August 19 (proceeds from ticket sales
benefit the NYC AIDS fund). “But if you can’t get a ticket, don't
fret!" Mayor Bloomberg said, noting that CBS.com will be broadcasting the
show live online. Designers and industry insiders present at the press conference (who we're hoping to see on the streets of New York come September 10th!) included Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Mary-Kate Olsen, Tommy Hilfiger, Alexander Wang, Carolina Herrera, Jack McCollough, Lazaro Hernandez and Tory Burch. More details to come!
