If you haven’t already heard, it’s been confirmed that Fashion’s Night Out will happen again next September. Yayyy.
Planning is already underway, and this year’s preparation should be a little easier because they won’t have to worry about staging the biggest fashion show ever, or any show for that matter. That’s right, according to a source inside Conde Nast, there will most likely not be a fashion show this time around.
But why? The show appeared to be a huge success. From Lauren’s account of the event: “Last night, I got a taste of what New York Fashion Week would be like if it was produced by Anna Wintour. Every show would begin on time. Only the best of the best designers would be invited to participate. And the music would be very, very good.”
Well, for one, it must have been incredibly expensive, time-consuming and difficult to coordinate. We doubt most designers were thrilled to have to produce looks for a frivolous fashion show while still finishing a collection they had to show in the same week. Plus, “The biggest fashion show ever except for the one we did last year” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
We also wonder if Vogue is just toning it down (a move we would wholeheartedly approve of) or planning something else. Will there still be Gossip Girl episodes? Naomi doing choreographed dance routines? Olsens judging karaoke? Models in Volkswagens? Stay tuned.
