Fashion’s Night Out can be intimidating to say the least lots to do, places to go and things to buy – but if it is beauty that you are after, here is our roundup of our favorite places to be on September 8. Stores from Broadway to Brooklyn open their doors to the public; hosting an array of events and festivities to kick-off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. But what really catches our eye are the must-see beauty extravaganzas from a nail polish ice cream truck to a street wide block party, here are some of the revelries we can’t wait to see.
There are lots of events happening for FNO at Bloomingdale's, but we are particularly excited about Milly designer Michelle Smith offering one-on-one makeup advice with Clinique and the chance to get a Diane Von Furstenberg Home inspired henna tattoo while shopping her collection.
