Fashion's Night Out: the sequel

If you like to drink for free, ogle fashionable people, and not spend any money, good news: Fashion's Night Out is back! The official website is live with event listings, which means from now until September 10th, I will be inundated with pitches. Here's what's new and exciting: FNO is on a Friday night, which means you can drink all the champagne you want and not have to show up hung over at work the next day, and it's not just for New Yorkers anymore--this "global initiative" is now happening in countries around the world and in states all across this fine country of ours. To save you from wading through the rather extensive event listings, The Cut has helpfully compiled the most promising events of the evening. I'm getting drunk* just thinking about it.

For those of you who've always wanted to attend a runway show, I say start a fashion blog! Well, or you can purchase tickets to the Fashion's Night Out Fashion Show taking place at Lincoln Center on September 7th. The American Express presale is already sold out, but general public tickets go on sale Thursday, 8/19 for $25-$400. Unlike real fashion shows, I suspect this one will start on time and that people will actually sit in their assigned seats.

*I realize I sound like a big lush in this post, but to be honest, I spent last year's Fashion's Night Out drinking champagne at half the stores in Soho. Was it fun? Yes. Did I spend any money? No. Do I think anyone did? Doubtful. That said, the night was great fun, and I definitely plan on celebrating again this year.
