Theres an air of anticipation in New York City summer is coming to an end (it’s DEVASTATING) and it’s almost the fall fashion week. Again. The Mercedes-Benz Fashion week begins on September 8th, and designer Kevin Wang brought to my attention the Fashions Night Out app he worked on (available on both iTunes and the Android market). Now, unlike Mr. Wang, I am not remotely fashionable. But there’s still plenty to do for all the foodies, broke-ass college kids, crustypunks, everyone and anyone! Here are a few events in New York that caught my attention. I apologize for not being able to link the events directly, but most of these events do not have a dedicated website – please check out FNO’s website for exact time/location.
- Watch the canine fashion show at Bergdorfs (LOLOLOLOLOL).
- Get some henna tattoos at Bloomingdales inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg. She don’t design no henna tattoos.
- James Murphy of the LCD Soundsystem apparently is performing at the Howard x Mercer Block Party, hosted by VPL, Agnes B., 3×1 and Nike. Last year there was a block party (via racked.com) thrown by Phillip Lim and Rag&Bone – there were burgers and cocktails and someone named Halle Berry there.
- At alice + olivia is going to host a carnival! You get to play games and eat cotton candy and sno-cones.
More events are announced everyday on FNO’s website. Take some time to plan your night of debauchery – if it all becomes too overwhelming, find a dive bar.
