Fashion’s Night Out:
Whether you’re a die-hard addict, or just a mo’ fo’ looking for an adventure, FNO is definitely something to check out. The night offers the chance to mix n’ mingle with celebrities and designers, as well as a wealth of swanky events to bump to and from with your “posse”. The official hours are from 6 pm-11 pm, and there’s a nifty tool online to make a schedule for yourself, but honestly, stuff is happening all day so make sure you check with your favorite stores before you plan your night.

Unless you’ve already received invitations to the top designer shows of the week, you’re probably not going to them. That’s OK. There’s plenty of eye-candy to get your blood (and your camera) running. Some tips for the fashion stalkers:
-Dress up like a badass, hang out outside Lincoln Center, and generally look fly. You might even get snapped by a street style photographer *gasp*.
-Watch the live streams. Tons of designers are going online with their shows Kate-Middleton-style. Can you say prosecco party?
-Take some shots (not that kind). This option is best combined with #1 and happens to make great moodboards.
-Study up on the who’s-who of the fashion world and get to know who the editors of your favorite blog/publication are in order to perform a timely double-take when they pass you.
-Read the blogs, it’s the easiest way to catch up and inform yourself about stuff you miss. Take a look at Refinery29.com, Highsnobette.com, Style.com, and TheSartorialist.com to get started.
