Fashion Night Out

New York was blazing with excitement as we celebrated fashions night out. Thrown by Vogues Ann Wintour, major retailers around the globe will keep there doors open until 11pm tonight; to top it off, big name designers and celebrities will make appearances in selected stores. Our target was 5th avenue, and the first stop of the tonight was Bergdorf Goodman were we saw designer Zac Posen painting color on one of his creations, while the model was actually wearing it. All this happened in the fifth Ave store window outside. It was very exciting as the crowds gather and photographers claw there way to the front to get the perfect shot. The designer started off with a plain white dress, like a blank canvas, and spray painted different colors such as blues, reds, orange and yellow onto the dress. Like magic, the dress was transformed into a colorful one of a kind master piece.
As we moved inside, crows of people mingled as we see Alexander Wang Sign T shirts benefitting the world trade center foundation.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olson guess bartend and served drinks. We moved to the lower level and proceeded to sample makeup and fragrances. Many celebrity guess began popping up such as Andre Leon Talley, Badgley Mischka, Patricia Underwood, as we mingled around an elite crowd.

2nd stop, Henri Bendel. Here we met jewelry designer Rodrigo Otazu and tried on his beautiful necklaces. Upstairs we met up and coming hand bag and accessory designer Nelle, as she showcases her current line of very beautiful and feminine handbags. A must have on a long list of “I want”. Selima New York also has a beautiful line of hats that’s very chic and fashionable. It was a pleasure meeting new designers as well as being able to shop and sip champagne.

Finally we ended at sacks Fifth Avenue were we mingled and ate complementary cookies and see designers such as Donna Karen. This was an incredible night, as crows of people were shopping and having unbelievable experiences, as well as being entertained at a time when the stores are usually closed. Recession was no longer on the minds of New Yorkers, and we came together, rich and poor, young and old spending money to benefit our economy. This was truly a night to remember.
