Yesterday New York City and the world witnessed the fiercest press conference ever. Anna Wintour and New York City Mayor, Mike Bloomberg, held a kick-off press conference for the second annual Fashion's Night Out. Anna brought some of her closest friends to join her in the press conference including, Donna Karan, Carolina Hererra, Mary-Kate Olsen, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, Zac Posen, and many more fantabulous designers. All you needed was some ball gowns, cocktails and Lady Gaga and it would have been a Mini Met Ball!
FNO was created last year with Diane Von Furstenberg to get people into stores during the recession. This year's fashions night out is set to trump last year's event with nearly 1,000 stores (up from last year's 800) staying open until 11:00 p.m. on Friday, September 10th. This year's FNO will also be the subject of an hour long behind-the-scenes documentary set to air on CBS on Tuesday, September 14th and will also be featured on two episodes of "Gossip Girl." FNO and AW will also have the largest fashion show that has ever been held in the city at the new home of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Lincoln Center.
All I know is that last year's FNO was one huge party! It happened on the first night of my big trip to NYC and now I live here! So many things have happened in only one year! I am looking forward to having another amazing time this year and spotting slash partying with some major celebs! (The O Twins?!)
Check out what I did during last year's FNO here. See you September 10th!!
