Fashion's Night Out. For the fourth year in a row, designers, models, fashion editors, celebrities and, of course, shoppers will once again flock to their favorite stores for an extravagant night of shopping, champagne and exclusive FNO events which are happening ALL over the World. In NYC, the celebration marks the kickoff to New York Fashion Week and the festivities all happen on Thursday, September 6, from 6 to 11pm.
Nick Verreos hosting Macy's Aventura Mall's Fashion's Night Out 2010 Event
American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company and the City of New York created Fashion's Night Out in 2009 as a collaboration intended to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry's economy and put the fun back in shopping. Proceeds from sales of official FNO gear will benefit the New York Community Trust's New York City AIDS Fund. For the last several years, I have had the pleasure of hosting FNO events in several cities/malls/department stores including Charleston West Virginia in 2011 and Miami in 2010.
Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue, NYC
This year, I have the extreme pleasure of being part of the Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue Fashion's Night Out 2012 event occurring yes, at the Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue Fifth Avenue Flagship in NYC!
Nick Verreos and Kim Kardashian (with then E! Entertainment's Debbie Matenopoulos--my "Greek Sister from Another Mister"!)
But, Miss Kim Kardashian isn't the only highlight of Lord & Taylor's Fashion's Night Out NYC party--we--the Project Runway alumn/designers who created the first ever Project Runway Collection--will also be there--and yes, that means, me too!
Nick Verreos for Project Runway/Lord & Taylor Collection Dress
So, when you are done with getting Miss Kim's autograph and photo for your Facebook....come see us---we will be on another floor getting our "Project Runway" fun on, unveiling our dresses--which are exclusively at Lord & Taylor's Fifth Avenue Flagship (as well as on their shopping website). I hear, there will be lots of fun activities that Lord & Taylor has in store---plus the fact that--at least for me--I'll be there to take all the FB and Twitter pics you want! I will be joined by the other first ever Project Runway Collection designers, including:
Season One Winner Jay McCarroll (right)...
All Stars Season One Winner Mondo Guerra (right)...
Season 7 Winner Seth Aaron Henderson and Season 9 designer Bert Keeter, among others
