Although not official until September 22, fall is definitely in the air. As much as I love summer, fall is by far my favorite season. Fresh, crisp air, colorful leaves and let’s admit it – there’s just something fantastic about fall clothes. Boots, cozy sweaters and deliciously rich colors are things I look forward to seeing this fall. Speaking of fall fashion, tonight kicks off the fourth annual Fashion Night Out (which was originally conceived by Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour and the CFDA to help boost the fashion economy).
From the Fashion Night Out website: Join editors, stars, models, fashionistas, and designers on September 6, 2012, as they flood stores in cities across the country and around the world for fashion’s most iconic extravaganza. Last year’s bash featured events in eighteen countries and more than 4,500 events here in the States. With special limited-edition products, celebrity appearances, and unforgettable performances, FNO 2012 is promising to be even bigger and better than before!
Most large cities are holding their own version of Fashion Night Out. For any of you in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area – here’s a list of participating boutiques/shopping malls as well as event details. I plan on checking out the June event. If you’ve not been to June, it’s a beautifully curated consignment boutique featuring top designers (think Balenciaga, Chanel, Missoni).
