Friday night, Sept. 10, marked the second annual Fashion’s Night Out, a global initiative to celebrate fashion, trends and styles while embracing creativity and culture. From France to South Korea and India to Australia, people spanning over 15 different countries from around the world took part in this lavish event and students at Fordham College at Lincoln Center were no different!

Fordham’s ideal Manhattan location afforded students the opportunity to be at the heart of all the action. Walking distance from FCLC, the Time Warner Center shops and restaurants hosted an array of festivities that lasted from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Students enjoyed live music from acclaimed vocalist Karrin Allyson and jammed out to current favorites at the Circle of Style Lounge located right on the second floor of the building.

Many shops were offering special promotions, discounts and giveaways. Sephora and Aveda, both leaders in beauty retail, offered free makeovers by their trained makeup artists on staff. Other retail locations including Cole Haan, Satya Jewelry, Tourneau and Cache held contests in which participants could enter for a chance to win prizes that ranged from free merchandise to a complete shopping spree.

For many, shopping and spending money did not fit into their college budget, but that didn’t stop them from taking part in Fashion’s Night Out. Students took the opportunity to indulge in chocolate samplings, complimentary Coca-Cola products, appetizers and hors d’oeuvres donated by restaurants and bakeries, and courtesy champagne–with proper proof of age, of course.

Fashion’s Night Out helped launch New York City’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week into high gear and equip the masses for fall. Fashion Week culminates this Thursday, Sept. 16, with events taking place all week long. Fordham students can log on to insidethecirclenyc.com to check out a list of the daily occurrences.
