What are the Best Fashion's Night Out Celebrations?

No matter what industry you work, it is impossible to ignore the influence of Fashion Week on our fair city.  Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out and while stores will be clamoring for your business, we wanted to make sure you spend your time (and money) wisely.  Check out our favorite events for this glamorous kick off celebration – hope to see you there:

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is quickly approaching and as the official sponsor, Mercedes-Benz is excited to kick-off the upcoming season at Lincoln Center in New York City.  This season, Mercedes-Benz celebrates its most iconic SUV, the G-Class (also known as the G-Wagon).  With a sculpted, muscular body and hand-crafted interior - the all-new 2013 G-Class is luxurious yet tough; it is fit for fashion.  This season, Mercedes-Benz is partnering with Barry's Bootcamp and exploring the best ways to stay fit for fashion, whether it's during the frenetic week of shows or when this season's spring collection hits your closet.  As always, Mercedes-Benz will also host its Star Lounge in Lincoln Center – a luxurious getaway for press, celebrities and tastemakers to relax in between shows.

Urban Decay and the Mud Coffee Truck- “Fuel Your Fashion Week: Part II”
On the heels of their success with last year’s partnership with the Eddie’s Pizza Truck, Urban Decay Cosmetics will be inviting fashion week goers to fuel up yet again. The Mud Coffee Truck will be parked outside Lincoln Center and MILK Studios serving up “NAKED” inspired coffee drinks and long-lasting make-up products to help keep show attendees fueled from Alexander to Zac.
