One of the most whirlwind experiences of my life was attending Fashion's Night Out in September of my freshman year of college. A spur of the moment, night before decision, combined with a 20 hour NYC excursion jampacked with celebrity sightings, shopping, and of course, good food made for one of the most memorable experiences of my college career thus far (and it was only the third week!) For those of you who don't know, Fashion's Night Out was started by VOGUE EIC Anna Wintour to boost 'shopping morale' in these hard economic times with sales, late hours at stores, celebrity appearances, and more: basically one big party for the shopping world (and a kick off to Fashion Week).
Last year's Thursday night Fashion's Night Out (FNO) prevented me from attending (what are the chances that the year they have the event on a Thursday is the only semester thus far in college that I've had Friday classes?) but I'm hoping to make it down this year, not only just for the event, but to be back in New York again for a few days (I'm dreading leaving already and I still have 7 weeks to go), although it is on another Thursday this year. Despite FNO not being for another couple of months, the preparations are already underway. Today on one of my favorite blogs, Fashion Foie Gras, I saw photos of the new FNO T-Shirt designs. I love the incorporation of color and the VOGUE label into the shirt - something that's never been done before. This year's shirts were designed by Jonathan Saunders and the design is printed on a cotton Gap tee. The proceeds go to the domestic violence charity Refuge. Here's a sneak peek below:
