You’ve heard about it, you have plotted your strategy on where you will go and tonight is the night. Some of the cities most fashionable shops keep their doors open until 11:00pm. Unless you have discovered how to clone yourself, it is humanly impossible to attend all 800+ shops and events tonight. In other words this is the one time not to be ‘fashionably late’ or for the faint of heart (or foot).

Think of it as a giant Halloween treat-or-treat night. Here are just a few highlights that may help you plan your path. You can create your itinerary as well as she what’s going on all night long.

The stars are coming out in full-force tonight. They will be at several locations and in some cases their own stores. So don’t think you’re seeing things if your favorite designer is ‘every place you seem to be’.

Here are some of my favorites who will be attending (not a complete list at all!):
Bergdorf Goodman (754 Fifth Avenue)
The prince of Vogue - Mr. Andre Leon Talley, Isaac Mizrahi, the shoe god Manolo Blahnik, Donna Karan, Zac Posen, Padma Lakshmi, Posh Beckham, Peter Som, Cynthia Rowley.

Barney’s (660 Madison Ave)
Isabel Toledo, Narciso Rodriguez, Amanda Brooks, Jonathan Adler, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will be pouring the perfect NY Fashion Night Out cocktail.

Saks Fifth Avenue (611 Fifth Ave)
Justin Timberlake, Trace Ayala, Carolina Herrera, Donna Karen, Elie Tahari, Giuseppe Zanotti, Josie Natori, Ralph Rucci, and Sarah Brown.

Macy’s in Queens (Queens Center – 90-01 Queens Blvd.)
How appropriate that the Queen of the night Anna Wintour, will be at holding court along with Michael Kors, Blake Lively and the cast of “Hair”. I’m sure Ms. Wintour will be spotted at several locations throughout the city mingling. Without a doubt, this is truly her NYC party and we get the gifts.

The extraordinary good-looking Hugh Jackman and Chance Crawford will be at Jeffery (449 W. 14th Street)

Pharrell Williams will be on hand at his Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream Shop (456 West Broadway)

If you are looking for freebies/discounts:
Honestly, there are just too many stores to list.

Food? Did someone say Food?
After all the shopping you just may need a real meal right? I mean you have to keep up your strength. There are several restaurants throughout the city that are offering Complimentary special appetizer or dessert with purchase of entrée. All you need is an American express card to take advantage of these exclusive dining offers.

If you are wearing your best ‘sex-kitten’ heels and get tired:
Free Fashion’s Night Out Shuttle Bus
During Fashion’s Night Out, there will be free shuttle buses running in Manhattan 6–11pm. These special double-decker buses have been generously provided by Gray Line New York and Payless Shoe Source as the official ride of Fashion’s Night Out.

There will be uptown and downtown bus loops provided. Both bus loops will make their first two stops on Sixth Avenue between 35th and 36th Streets, and across from the Payless Shoe Source store at Fifth Avenue and 39th Street. Riders can transfer from an uptown bus to a downtown bus, and vice versa, at either of these locations. After each bus completes its loop, it will return to the starting point and continue the route again.

Don't just look like a millionaire, spread the karma...
Buy a Fashion's Night Out designer T-shirt and 40% of the proceeds will be donated to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center. Shirts are available for purchase at participating retailers throughout the City. If you can’t attend but want to do your part, check out,,, and as well as all the stores listed in ‘pink’

Neither rain, nor sore feet, nor crowds at night will keep a NYC Fashionista from one of the best events of the year. See you there.
