Golden Spot #2

FNO & New York Fashion Week

  In September, when we already came back from summer holidays, we all get excited for the season that is coming on (thinking about the new collections at the stores and filling our closets with the new trend items). However, the Autumn/Winter trends don’t get all the attention – during this month the runway shows of the next Spring/Summer season take place on the fashion capitals.
  Last Thursday, September 8, the third edition of Vogue Fashion’s Night Out (second time here in Portugal) happened in 18 countries. The FNO consists on an after-hours shopping event in which the stores offer discounts, music performances, limited edition products, cocktails.
  The FNO Lisbon took place on Chiado, Rua Castilho, Av. da Liberdade and Príncipe Real. Unfortunately I couldn’t take any photos, but I had never seen Chiado so crowded! The event was great, I loved it.
  While we were getting ready for FNO, where we saw the new collections for Autumn and got the chance to buy some of the must haves of the season, New York was also getting ready for a new season – Spring/Summer 2012. How lucky are they?? Fashion Week shows during the day and to a perfect end Vogue Fashion’s Night Out on the Big Apple streets.
Until today, new yorkers and fashionistas from all over the world could see the spring collections from Alexander Wang, Diane von Furstenberg, Thakoon, Altuzarra, Victoria Beckham, Peter Som, DKNY, the Olsen sister’s brand The Row, among others.
  The New York Fashion Week ends on Thursday, September 15, with the Marc Jacobs show but on the following day London will get all the attention from the fashion world (from September 16 to 21). Meanwhile, we still have to see the collections from names like Carolina Herrera, Donna Karen New York, Rodarte, Tory Burch, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler and Calvin Klein.
