It is currently NY Fashion Week, which is why Fashion’s Night Out was Thursday. This event happens twice a year, in September, to showcase designers’ upcoming Spring collections, and in February, to showcase the upcoming Fall collections. CK challenged me to go to a NY Fashion Week Show as part of my 28 Things, and she had specified that it couldn’t be part of Fashion’s Night Out and had to be a real show.
Tonight’s “getting ready for the Holidays” event was Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square. The Winter’s Eve website claims to be NYC’s Largest Holiday Festival and was spread out on Broadway from 58th to 68th streets. This fair involved outdoor food booths, street performances, free offerings at stores in the area, activities for kids (make-your-own elf hats!), and a 25-foot balsam fir tree, which was lit at the beginning of the festival.
