The Ultimate Guide to Fashion’s Night Out

Fashion’s Night Out is fast approaching, which means you have mere days to finalize your plan of attack. Anna Wintour is hitting up at least eighteen stores this September 10, and since we’re assuming you have no T-shirts to sign and/or entourage to slow you down, there’s no reason you can’t, too. We’ve combed through more than 950 events to bring you the best spots for spending money, tearing up the dance floor, drinking for free, stuffing your face for free, and rubbing up against celebrities (ew, not like that!).

Of course, if the thought of last year's crushing crowds has you wanting to assume the fetal position, stay right where you are: The Cut will be dispatching loads of reporters all across the city, and chronicling their findings via the blog and our Twitter feed. Also, be sure to check out Barneys' blog, BSides, where Tavi Gevinson will be posting live. Then on September 14, tune in to CBS to watch a one-hour documentary on the making of Fashion’s Night Out, where you’ll be able to witness Vogue’s heavy hitters hosting fashion power breakfasts over tables heaped with untouched muffins. A night well spent, no matter how you spend it.
