Can’t-Miss Events for NYC’s Biggest Fashion Event

Fashions Night Out NYC 2011

Is Fashion’s Night Out the biggest party night in New York City? We’d like to think so. Whether you’re looking for couture swag, champagne fountains, or a swooning celebrity encounter, here’s a list of our top 5 destinations to kick off NYC’s Fashion Week tonight.

Manolo Blahnik Food Truck – Various Locations
Visit the Milkshakes and Manolos truck for a good and fashionable cause! You can sip your milkshake happily knowing that a portion of sales will be donated to The Fund For Public Schools. Follow #manolomilkshakes to track down this fashionable truck.

Kenneth Cole – Soho
The awesomely outspoken Kenneth Cole brand will be hosting a live performance by Parachute, photo ops with the man behind the brand, cocktails, canapés, and a free Kenneth Cole FNO tee for every visitor. From 6pm until fashionably late.

Alice + OliviaMidtown West
For the grown-up version of the old-school carnivals you loved as a kid, don’t miss the A + O Carnival! Visit their Midtown West store for face-painting, vintage carnival games, Sno-cones, cotton candy, and raffles. Personally, we can’t wait to try their classy candies.

Anthropologie – Chelsea
This year more than ever, musical performances are making a play for the spotlight at FNO. For an especially sweet musical treat, stop by Anthropologie in the Chelsea Market to hear A Fine Frenzy perform live! Listed as one of Vogue Daily’s “Best Music Acts on Fashion’s Night Out,” singer Alison Sudol is sure to charm your socks off.

Dolce & Gabbana – Upper East Side
Justin Bieber will be at Dolce & Gabbana’s Madison Avenue store tonight. GET GOING. Or don’t.
