“I’m in a New York state of mind.” – Billy Joel
September is finally here and that means that fall is here as well. With fall comes my favorite event: Fall Fashion Week. I have been blessed with the opportunity to go to New York City for Mercedes-Benz Fall Fashion Week. This opportunity has given me the chance to learn how to put on fashion shows, work backstage with numerous crews, see gorgeous clothes and see famous fashion shows.
September also means that I get to be in the big city for Fashion’s Night Out. This iconic event is where everyone from you and I, to models, designers, celebrities, and fashionistas, come together on September 6, and flood stores in cities all across the country and around the world. FNO was founded four years ago in New York City by Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The incentive behind creating this global celebration of fashion was to help boost the economy and consumer confidence. Cities across the globe participate to put on fabulous in store events and promotions. Last year’s bash featured events in eighteen countries and more than 4,500 events here in the States.
