If you're the type of gal who goes nuts for a pair of shoes, you simply cannot miss Fashion's Night Out in NYC. For one night only, the best stores in NYC will hold extended operating hours and offer exciting shopping incentives such as free fashion giveaways, free drinks, and celebrity appearances. Vera Wang, Robin Thicke, DJ Manero, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are just a few of the celebrities to have appeared in support of this massively popular NYC fashion event.
Over 300 NYC stores will participate in this year's event, with a total of 1,300 mini-events being held throughough the city. That means you ought to start planning early. Pick up an official event map from the Fashion's Night Out street team, then buy your ticket to the Gray Line. Of course, you might enjoy walking from store to store on foot, but everybody knows it's no fun shuffling down Fifth Avenue in a pair of three-inch heels.
By now you're probably wondering how much all this costs. That's the best part: Fashion's Night Out is free. Those who choose to purchase an official Fashion's Night Out T-shirt will take pleasure in knowing that 40% of the proceeds from the shirt will be donated to AIDS charities in New York City. That's right: we're talking about guilt-free shopping in NYC. And if you rock that T-shirt in style, you could win runway tickets to a Fashion Week show. Talk about shopping incentives!
