Fashion’s Night Out was once about snagging coveted items for a cool price, rubbing elbows with designers and editors, and…sipping free bubbly. Now, the scene’s really a toss-up between a trample-fest of fourteen year olds hoping to get a Justin Bieber wink and a snooze-fest of a party set to thumping music. So to save you from waltzing into a lackluster FNO fiesta, we’ve got the top 8 spots you’ve gotta hit before the night’s up on September 6th. See you there!
Opening Ceremony At ACE Hotel
1190-1192 Broadway, 6-11PM
OC at ACE Hotel will be holding multiple events at one location on September 6! So if karaoke isn’t for you, stick around for the final highlight of the evening where designers and friends of OC (Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, Band Of Outsiders and more) will be participating in the “Closet2Closet” initiative. You’ll be able to shop one-of-a-kind items from each designer’s closet, with all proceeds going to Broome Street Academy. If you want chill, just head down for the book signing with OC Founder, Humberto Leon!
