FASHION-FEST: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicks off today in New York City. This much-anticipated mega-event features eight days of runway shows from the likes of Michael Kors, Anna Sui and Calvin Klein. You can celebrate all that is fashion tonight at Fashion’s Night Out at NorthPark Center beginning at 6 p.m. While you’re there, be sure and pick up an exclusive Fashion’s Night Out t-shirt from Neiman Marcus for $30 - 40% of the proceeds will benefit the September 11 Memorial Museum.
LIVING LEGEND: What a perfect week to release Valentino: The Last Emperor on DVD! Order your copy of this film tribute to one of fashion’s most iconic designers from Amazon for just $16.49. We’re thinking a watching party (complete with plenty of bubbly prosecco) is definitely in order.
UP AND COMER: You can also scoop up frocks from one of fashion’s rising stars at Betty Cupcake. The sweet little shop carries designs by Chloe Dao, winner of Project Runway Season 2 and owner of Houston’s Lot 8 Boutique. Visit Betty Cupcake at 6723 Snider Plaza, 214-369-2253.
