This September doesn't just mean Fashion Week, fall and my 25th birthday (yikes!), it also means the first ever Vogue Night Out.
Mayor Bloomberg and Anna Wintour announced the initiative in May, hoping for a revitalization of fashion and retail in New York City. The event's taken on international proportions, with counterparts in London and Paris on the night of September 10th.
The best part of the night's shaping up to be something other than endless promotional tees and charitable tie-ins: the presence of the designers themselves.
Today, Vogue UK lets slip that Alexander Wang will be on hand at Barneys teaching customers how to walk a runway which means we're left wondering how the the other participating designers will feature. If it's cold enough, can Vera Wang teach ice skating at Rock Center? We'd like Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren conducting traffic at 57th and 5th and Donna Karan drawing horse carriages from Bergdorf to Saks.
Is that too much to ask?
