NY Fashion Week kicks off with the debut of New York Fashion Night Out

If you are not taller then 6 feet you are a shorty in NYC streets these days. At least during the biannual Fashion Week where the city bustles with models strutting the pavements. Until next Thursday be prepared to see some pretty outrageous outfits, and I’m not talking about the ones on the catwalks of Bryant Park (this will be the last time the shows will happen in the tents, btw.) I’m talking about the fashionistas in the closet who feel comfortable to come all out during this time of year. And I love it. The fauna on the streets becomes much more fun and colorful. Today I spotted many interesting characters and I think they felt particularly inspired by the first Fashion Night Out, a Fashion Week Kick-Off event invented by Vogue’s Grande-Dame Anna Wintour happening tonight! 700 stores will keep their doors open until 11 pm. The mood is party time for the mod crew and fashion fans: many stores will serve drinks and goodie bags for the ones who actually remember to make purchase. The Olson twins will be mixing cocktails at Bergdorf Goodman and Rock n' roll photographer Mick Rock will take your portrait if you spend $300 at John Varvatos. No tickets necessary for any party, from Oscar de La Renta, Valentino, Barney’s to Gap and H&M, you are invited to sip & shop. Hope you are wearing the "right" shoes to go party-hopping, I mean party-shopping.
