Fashion's Night Out is an evening dedicated to revitalizing the fashion industry: consumers are encouraged to come out and shop at the hundreds (if not thousands) of participating stores around the globe, this Friday, September 10. While the event welcomes consumerism, there are plenty of ways to take part without over-spending, or even shopping for that matter.
In New York, listen to free live music, mingle with a favorite fashion designer, and take part in a bevy of green fashion and beauty festivities happening in and around the city. Click through for 10 events worth checking out, including details on Edun's pop up shop, a chance to meet Josie Maran, and more.
