For those of you who don’t know, every year for just one night, the entire fashion industry comes together for an event called Fashion’s Night Out. It’s a pretty amazing and exciting event and the turnout is always stupendous. Stores stay open late, celebrity guests and designers make pop-up appearances for no reason and you can shop till you DROP! The event takes place this year on September 6th and is held for multiple purposes which include:
1 – To kick off New York Fashion Week
2 – To unite the world through fashion
…and most importantly
3 – To benefit various charities through its proceeds.
What I read in the news yesterday was that as part of Fashion’s Night Out, designer Phillip Lim has created a comic book called “Kill the Night” as a means to promote his Fall/Winter Collection. The comic book was illustrated by Jan Duursema (Star Wars) and co-written by the same guy that writes Batman and X-Men, John Ostrander. In the story, set in a Sin City-ish atmosphere, models face all the violence and dangers of the world while wearing killer outfits. I think that has to be one of the most creative ideas ever and I can’t wait to get a copy. You can request your copy through his website by clicking here. Only lucky clients purchasing at Phillip Lim stores on Fashion’s Night Out will receive a complimentary copy that night.
I’ll be in NYC on Fashion’s Night Out so I’m hoping to worm my way into someone’s party…or two! I’ll dish about all of that stuff when I’m back in town.
Until next time!
