The Fashion's Night Out schedule just keeps on growing, as LA-based boutiques and designers announce events both at home and away. Please enjoy a roundup of the latest news:
J Brand Gallery, part of Fred Segal's Fashion Night Out festivities
FRED SEGAL: The Melrose mega-boutique has added several names to its Fashion's Night Out roster, bringing the total event count to 36. One notable addition is Pleasure Doing Business, the oft-buzzed-about line of affordable bandage miniskirts, who will be releasing an exclusive FNO style on the night. On the celebrity front, Pete Wentz will be on hand to offer pieces from his fashion line, Clandestine Industries, at Ron Herman—one that we didn't even know existed until now.
BERGDORF GOODMAN: Yesterday, we told you about a life-sized session of the Fashion Rules board game, to be hosted by Andre Leon Talley at Bergdorf Goodman in New York. We've just received word that Bergdorfs is giving four contest winners the chance to play the game alongside designer Donna Karan, Bergdorf Goodman fashion director Linda Fargo, style expert Robert Verdi, and others on the night of September 10th. To enter, you only need visit BG's Facebook page and answer ten fashion-related trivia questions—transportation to New York isn't included, but it's worth a shot if you're going to be in town anyway.
YOTAM SOLOMON: We only feel a little bit betrayed that LA-based designer Yotam Solomon is going to NYC for FNO, but he has good reason to do so—he'll be showcasing his Spring 2010 collection at Design Within Reach, in tandem with an installation by interior designer Preston Lee. Pretty smart way of killing two Fashion Week birds with one stone, we think.
