Fashion's Night Out round two is over. Veni, vidi, vici. It was like Halloween for fashion people. (We wish retailers were handing out clothes like candy.) Conquering the chaos of last night was much easier as Fashion's Night Out provided the Fashionista team with a Volkswagen Jetta so we could jump from Soho where we shopped Alexa Chung's collection for Madewell (so cute) uptown to Bergdorf's to wait on line to see Tom Ford, and made a lot of stops in between.
Here's the best of what we saw last night, and a few highlights from events we wish we'd had time to see. If you braved FNO last night, we want to know, what was the craziest thing you saw or best purchase you made?
Karl Lagerfeld and a bike at FENDI.
We saw Naomi rehearse her FNO routine for Dolce & Gabbana. Here's what it looked like night of. So many hotpants.
Charlotte Ronson, sis Sam, and Michelle Trachtenberg at JC Penny for I Heart Ronson. Charlotte and Michelle doled out styling tips and Sam DJed.
Tom Ford at Bergdorf Goodman. Steff had her friend wait on line starting hours before his appearance so she could get a glimpse. That's how much she loves Tom Ford.
Tommy Hilfiger and the Hilfiger clan last night outside Macy's. Remember Train? As in "Meet Virginia" and "Drop of Jupiter"? They where there too and gave a free performance.
We had to stop this bedazzled helmet when we saw it on Fifth Ave. because it was so awesome. The man inside happened to be Deryck Todd, a filmmaker whose documentary about NYFW called The Tents premieres Wednesday.
Models in threeASFOUR put on a Yoko Ono performance piece at the Moma store in Soho.
Our favorite part of the night: The Ken doll truck. I'm not sure if we were following the Kens or they were following us but we passed this truck holding real live Ken dolls (they were even held in at the waist by plastic rings) about five times last night.
