Fashion’s Night Out—NYC Guide

Hola peeps!  I hope that you had a long and wonderful holiday weekend!  As for me I attempted to relaxed yet I was busy prepping for fashion week (Sept 6-13th).  There are so many shows, events, parties and guess what we will be right there giving you full coverage.  If you want to stay in the know then you MUST follow SNC on twitter/instagram/facebook as that is where I will be sharing info up to the minute.  The first major event going down is FNO (Fashion’s Night Out).  The only night where shopping and boozing is expected.  It all started here in NYC just 3 years ago but it has grown into worldwide phenomenon.  One of my fave sites—Refinery29 has put together a massive NYC FNO guide…check it out!

Juicy Couture
Where: Juicy Couture, 650 5th Avenue (at 52nd street); 212-796-3360.
Time: 6 to 9 p.m.
Why:It wouldn’t be Fashion Week without the models, which is why Juicy is highlighting them as the focal point of their FNO party. From 6 to 7 p.m. Karlie Kloss will be in the store to take photos with partygoers. And these aren’t just your average pictures — they’ll be taken by Vogue’s Ivan Shaw.

Prieto & Gansevoort
Where: Gansevoort Hotel, 18 9th Avenue (at Gansevoort street); 212-206-6700.
Time: starting at 6 p.m.
Why: Not only will stylists from Prieto Select be offering hair and makeup touch-ups, but they’ll also be giving complementary massages — is there anyone who doesn’t need to go into the chaos that is Fashion Week with a massage?

Free People
Where: Free People locations throughout Manhattan.
Time: 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Why: The first 50 shoppers to show up at each location will be privy to a Free People iPhone case and tote bag for, uh, free. You can also enter to win a night at the Dream Downtown, including dinner for two at Marble Lane. You’ll bring us, right?

Matt Bernson
Where: Matt Bernson, 20 Harrison street (between Greenwich and Staple streets); 212-219-4030.
Time: 6 to 10 p.m.
Why: This is the first event to take place at Matt Bernson’s Tribeca boutique. The event will include NailEZEE fashion manicures, as well as a braid bar from Joico. Be sure to get there early — the first 100 guests will receive a gift.

Saks Fifth Avenue

This is the place to meet and greet all those names you normally just read about from afar.
