Agenda: Fashion's Night Out 09.

My tentative plan is to stick in the vicinity of Madison, 5th, and the 60's ... with a few exceptions. Of course I'm going to hit the holy trinity... Bergdorf's, Barney's, and Bloomie's [custom painted Marc Jacobs tees!!!]... but there are some stand-alones that I'm dying to hit...time [and wallet!] permitting.

1. My girlfriend who is accompanying me that night is a huge Tory Burch fan, so she'll be dragging me to check out the festivites @ Burch's boutique in the meatpacking district. [Tory is hosting a neighborhood block party to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out. Deejay Cassidy will be spinning, La Esquina will be barbequing, and the Street Peeper will be snapping pictures of all the guests!.]

2. Saks boasts having 40 designers walking around the sales floors that night. [Donna Karan, Carolina Hererra, Elie Tahari, Giuseppe Zanotti, Josie Natori, Peter Som, Ralph Rucci, Geren Ford, Shoshanna Gruss, Kay Unger, the designers of jewelry line Faraone Mennella and many more. The biggest names in beauty such as Aerin Lauder, Bobbi Brown and Fredrick Fekkai will also visit Saks, along with world renowned makeup and beauty artists representing the foremost beauty brands. Customers can look forward to over 1,000 cosmetic giveaways.]

3. Chanel is doing CUSTOM HANDBAG DESIGN. That's right, design your own one-of-a-kind Chanel. Sweeter words have never been uttered.

4. Patricia Field. [Custom airbrush demonstrations, trunk shows from A-Morir by Kerin.Rose, Tom Tom Fashions, and Pavon by Luz & Victoria. Tom Tom Fashions will be customizing our Fashion’s Night Out T-shirts in his unique rock-’n’-roll-glamour style. Refreshments and a special appearance by Ms. Field.]

5. Roberto Cavalli, who will host the event at his boutique PERSONALLY. [The designer has chosen to celebrate his boutique’s ten-year anniversary with Fashion’s Night Out, which will feature ten fabulous archival gowns from ten years in New York. Guests will enjoy signature cocktails inspired by the gowns.]

6. Sephora will host the Temptu Living Museum as models are brought to life from the pages of Italian Vogue and the silverscreen from films such as The Stepford Wives, among other legendary Temptu makeup moments. [Shoppers and museum guests will have the opportunity to have a Temptu Transformation and put themselves in the pages of Temptu history with a live photoshoot and makeover on the mezzanine of the 5th Avenue Sephora store.]

7. J. Alexander will be giving runway lessons at H&M; Herald Square. I'm trying really hard not to geek out over this, but it's Miss J!!!

I'd better stop while I still can. A full list of retailers and events here.

Oh, and if anyone can tell me how to be in 20 places at once, I promise to make it worth your while.
