Fashion’s Night Out was created four years ago by Vogue (the concept was Anna Wintour’s baby) along with the Council of Fashion Designers of America and the City of New York, to celebrate fashion, boost the industry’s economy during the recession, and put the fun back in shopping. The initiative has since exploded globally, and several stores in our back yards are participating tomorrow night, Thursday, September 6, with in-store special events, deals, entertainment and more. Grab a girlfriend, your wallet, and go shopping — no need to go to the city!
Several stores in the Westchester Mall will be hosting special Fashion’s Night Out events – notably, Neiman Marcus, where you can meet handbag designer Santiago Gonzalez, enjoy tastings from BLT Steak, and check out the accessory bar with blogger Stacy Geisinger of Stacyknows.
