Fashion's Night Out 2009 - New York City
Did anybody hear about this?

I am sure most of you did, and it seems I have been living under a rock for the past I don't know how many months this has been up and about. But I could not find a thread about this event, which sounds to be the most exciting fashion event of the year/season.

Fashion's Night Out - New York City

A Global Celebration of Fashion

In a global initiative to promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion, U.S. and international editions of Vogue are coordinating evening extravaganzas in their respective world fashion capitals.

In the United States, American Vogue has joined with NYC & Company, the City of New York, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to enliven again the consumer spirit that churns the economy and boosts the local industry of America’s fashion capital, New York City. Next only to finance, fashion is the second-largest sector of industry in New York City—the headquarters of more than 800 fashion companies employing 175,000 people and generating $10 billion in total wages. At City Hall’s May 20 press conference to announce Fashion’s Night Out, Vera Wang said, "To put it bluntly, if people don’t shop, people lose their jobs."

The first evening of New York Fashion Week, Fashion's Night Out will encompass festivities galore— from inventive window displays to model and celebrity appearances. Champagne may flow; hors d'oeuvres may be passed. Rumors of musical performances, downtown barbecues, shoe capsules, limited-edition rings, and sweepstakes abound. Apparently there will be makeovers, brow bars, and haircut stations at sundry spots, too.

Fashion's Night Out Will Bring Anna Wintour To Queens, Hamish Bowles To Juicy Couture, and the Olsens To Bartend at Barneys
Mon, 08/17/09 — 03:58:47 PM

The roster of events for Anna Wintour's international shopping extravaganza on Sept. 10, Fashion's Night Out, has been rolled out, and as Anna put it in the press release: “Little did I think when the idea of Fashion’s Night Out was first dreamed up this past March during the Paris collections that we would have over 700 and counting retailers, designers, and brands joining us on the night of September 10. There is so much planned that we could shop till dawn and still not see and do everything.”

Wintour kicks everything off, along with Michael Kors and "a surprise celebrity guest," at Macy's Queen Center location at 5 pm and will sign t-shirts for the first 50 customers. That event just so happens to be ten minutes away from a US Open tennis match Roger Federer will likely play that same day at 7 pm (and thus Anna will likely attend).

Vogue has sprinkled its editors all over town that night — from 8-9 pm at Bergdorf Goodman, Andre Leon Talley is hosting a game with teams led by Donna Karan and Linda Fargo; Grace Coddington is set to "tell an extraordinary visual story" throughout the Fifth Ave Prada store; Hamish Bowles will be "performing Noel Coward and other favorites" at Juicy Couture's Fifth Avenue store; and Lauren Santo Domingo will be popping by Alexander McQueen, Lord & Taylor, and Versace.

Models, too, are contributing: Arlenis Sosa, Jessica Stam, Karolina Kurkova, Angela Lindvall, Adriana Lima, Stephanie Seymour, Julia Stegner, Caroline Trentini, Cindy Crawford, Erin Wasson, Caroline Winberg, Carmen Kass are all slated to make appearances (at currently unknown locations); DKNY is boasting of a "special performance by Coco Rocha from 9-11 pm"; Lily Donaldson is contributing music at the Burberry between Madison and Fifth Ave; Sasha Pivovarova is exhibiting her work at Henri Bendel; Daria Werbowy will be on hand at the Times Square Sunglass Hut, where guests can take photographs with her while trying on sunglasses; Chanel Iman, Hana Soukupova, and others will be at Versace; and Daria Strokous is hosting a cocktail party from 7-9 pm at Salvatore Ferragamo to celebrate the launch of her photo exhibition, a backstage visual diary of her New York Fashion Week experience.

In addition to Lauren Santo Domingo, a fair share of it-girls will be on the circuit, hosting parties : Harley Viera-Newton is DJing at Tom Binns; Margherita Missoni is hosting at Missoni; and Alexandra and Theodora Richards are hosting and DJing at French Connection.

Last but not least, the designers: Roberto Cavalli will personally host the ten-year anniversary of his boutique, featuring ten archival gowns; Manolo Blahnik is holding a meet-and-greet; Oscar de la Renta is planning to sing a few songs at his Madison Ave boutique; and Brian Atwood is playing his favorite music as DJ at Bally.

Other events of note (the Olsens are bartending, meet Steven Klein):

1. Barneys

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are bartending; Alexander Wang is giving runway lessons; Juan Carlos Obando is teaching salsa dancing; and Rodarte have conceived a "special performance"; also expected for the festivities are Rag & Bone, Waris Ahluwalia, Narciso Rodriguez, Proenza Schouler, Isabel Toledo, and Thom Browne.

2. Chanel

The Chanel boutique at 15 East 57th Street will have a Customized Handbag Studio, where customers can: "Enjoy sipping on champagne while collaborating with our specialists to design your personalized bag. Choose your favorite lambskin color, lining, hardware, and chain — and be among the first in the United States to own a customized, monogrammed Chanel classic bag."

3. Bergdorf Goodman

From 5-6 pm, Zac Posen is painting "one-of-a-kind" creations available for sale; from 6-7 pm, Peter Som, Cynthia Rowley, and others are going at it in a designer cook-off; Steven Klein, Annie Leibovitz, and Pat McGrath will all be on hand from 7-8 pm for a showing of Vogue's most provocative beauty images, and from 8-9 pm, Andre Leon Talley is hosting the aforementioned game show. Marchesa's Georgina Chapman is also making a personal appearance.

4. Kirna Zabete

Kirna Zebete is celebrating its tenth anniversary with hosts Narciso Rodriguez, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Thakoon Panichgul, Jason Wu, and Peter Som, who will all be there in person to debut exclusive items: Peter Som limited-edition aprons, Proenza Schouler print tote bags, Thakoon one-of-a-kind dresses, Narciso Rodriguez photo collages, and Jason Wu fall 2009 fashion sketches.

5. Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony is going block party, transforming its store front into a collection of sidewalk shops. For the occasion, vintage cars have been customized to each participating designer's aesthetic — a classic convertible low-rider for Rodarte, a black van for Alexander Wang, a Volkswagon minibus for Proenza Schouler, a Thai truck for Scott Sternberg of Boy/Band of Outsiders — Delfina Delettrez Fendi is also among those involved — and goods made exclusively for the occasion will be sold out of them.


I would not mind meeting Daria while trying on some shades, or listen to what Hamish or ALT has to say....

I guess Anna and Vogue think that it s their utmost responsibility to make things right for the industry, like she had said during the 60 Minutes interview. She is trying very hard to make life easier for designers and retailers. Coincidentally, The September Issue is also coming out this year, and maybe the reason why she is promoting the doc. the way that she has been doing is to create some much needed buzz and aura around fashion again... make people interested. If there is one person who could accomplish it, it would be her I guess.

This is such a serious project... maybe they should repeat it for SS as well if it turns out to be successful and meet the expectations.

Is anyone attending any of the Fashion's Night Out 2009 events, organized by Vogue? Any initial thoughts or impressions?
I just got my invitation and I'm debating whether I should postpone other commitments to go...
