Fashion Week Shall Not Interrupt Anna’s Special Shopping Night


The Fashion Week schedule for the spring 2010 shows has been posted online. Shows run from Thursday, September 10 through Thursday, September 17. Firmly penned into the schedule is Anna Wintour's economic stimulus effort Fashion's Night Out, a Vogue-sponsored event in which stores stay open late and do things they wouldn't normally do (Alexander Wang is holding runway-strutting lessons at Barneys, for example) to remind customers that shopping isn't scary and they should start, well, doing it again. So far only one designer is deigning to show between the hours of 6 and 10 p.m. on Thursday, September 10, during Fashion's Night Out: Cesar Galindo, at 7 p.m. at the always classy M2 Ultra lounge in the meatpacking district.

Also of note on the schedule: Christian Siriano is showing in the tents for yet another season. Doo.Ri and Isaac Mizrahi, who usually don't show in the tents, are showing in the tents this season. But remember Milk Studios is having its own Fashion Week downtown away from the tents, where Proenza Schouler, Wang, ThreeAsFour, and Preen are showing. That schedule hasn't come out yet. Will they be rebellious enough to stage shows during Fashion's Night Out? Probably not, but you never know.
