Fashion's Night Out could be called the biggest fashion party to happen every year. This is because hundreds of stores across NYC and even the world are going to stay open till 11p.m. to host amazing celeb filled parties to encourage people to shop it up for a great cause!
Many people have asked me where I will be for this famazing night (fierce + amazing) or where they should go for the best time. Because of this I have come up with OJ&B's guide to Fashion's Night Out. Well.. it is not so much a guide as it is an itinerary of where I plan on going, thanks to my good friend Haley, who helped me go through the massive list! So here are the places we thought would be hot to hit up:

The New Yorker is having an Exclusive VIP Reception at the Banana Republic Rockefeller Store from 5-6 PM. Evening will feature an exhibition of New Yorker fashion covers and you will have the opportunity to meet The New Yorker Art Editor, Francoise Mouly and Banana Republic Creative Director, Simon Kneen. This hour will be a private reception but will open up to the public after 6pm! LOVE the New Yorker!
