Fashion's Night Out NYC- What To Do

There are so many events taking place in New York tomorrow for Fashion's Night Out that you might not be able to decide which ones to skip and which ones to make time for. Here's a suggested itinerary from Style Gourmand that includes a little bit of everything:

You'll need some energy if you want to make it to as many events as possible, so stop by the cupcake truck which will be parked outside Club Monaco on Prince Street (2-11PM).

Down the block (Greene between Prince & Spring), Kirna Zabete will be celebrating its tenth anniversary. Pop-in and have a drink with Sarah and Beth, as they hang with their favorite New York designers: Narciso Rodriguez, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Thakoon Panichgul, Jason Wu, and Peter Som. Also, check out Peter Som limited-edition aprons, Proenza Schouler print tote bags, Thakoon one-of-a-kind dresses, Narciso Rodriguez photo collages, and Jason Wu fall 2009 fashion sketches.

Have a free manicure at the Chanel store (139 Spring Street @ Wooster) before seeing what kind of treats Rebecca Taylor's Nolita store has in it's candy bar. Don't miss your chance to win two tickets to her Spring 2010 fashion show while you're there.

When you start getting hungry for something more than cotton candy and cocktails, see what's being served at the vegetarian food truck outside the Stella McCartney store on 14th street. There will also be street performances and eco-fashion tips fromVogue’s Fashion Director, Tonne Goodman.

Next head uptown to the Gucci store to score a free "Fashion's Night Out" t-shirt. (725 Fifth Avenue @ 56th St). Go to Alice + Olivia (80 W. 40th b/w Fifth & Sixth Ave) and get ready for your close-up with a full makeover and wardrobe styling. Now that you're camera- ready, get photographed with Donna Karan and Justin Timberlake, at Saks Fifth Avenue (611 Fifth Avenue b/w 49th & 50th Sts). Barneys will also have heaps of personal appearances from fashion celebrities like Manolo Blahnik, Alexander Wang and Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy to name a few.

Across the street, Matisyahu will be performing live in front of the Kenneth Cole store at 8PM. If ballads are more your style, then listen to Oscar de la Renta sing some of his favorite songs at his Upper East side store (772 Madison Avenue @ East 66th St).

End the evening with some jazz and champagne as Anne Fontaine presents her latest jazz-inspired collection, Black Pearl (677 Madison Avenue (b/w 61st & 62nd Sts).
