“Fashion In The Making,” “A Fashion Extravaganza,” “Historical” are some of the words used to describe Fashion’s Night Out: The Show, held at Lincoln Center on Tuesday September 7.
The Show was planned by Anna Wintour and her team at Vogue to kickoff Fashion’s Night Out 2010 (beginning at 6pm – 11pm on September 10). Diane Von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Michael Kors and Vera Wang were among the designers in attendance. Serena Williams, Blake Lively and Roger Federer were also there. Blake mentioned that segments from Fashion’s Night Out will appear on Gossip Girl.
André Leon Talley knows his fashion! It was delightful to listen to his comments about fashion, style, designers and trends as he hosted the webcast with Hanneli Mustoparta. André rocked it!
The Show started with the arrival of the supermodels (Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bundchen, Jordan Dunn, Angela Lindvall, Chanel Iman, Karolina Kurkova and others) on a double decker bus that pulled up to the Lincoln Center outdoor, plaza. A surprise appearance by recording artist, producer, musician and fashion designer – Pharrell entertained the crowd. The show ended with Pharrell leaving the runway with Naomi Campbell. The live, webcast appearing on CBS.com is sponsored by Maybelline (see video below).
Vodpod videos no longer available.
It is anticipated that Fashion’s Night Out will boost enthusiasm and put the fun back in to shopping for consumers! Shoppers will find the fashions from The Show in stores right now. No waiting … instant gratification! Fashionistas can personalize the looks from The Show to suit their individual styles.
Hopefully all of this attention to fashion and style during Fashion’s Night Out and New York Fashion Week will help boost retail sales and stimulate the economy.
