What better way to celebrate the first day of the International fashion shows that with a shopping fest? Fashion's Night Out is the brainchild of US Vogue's Anna Wintour, with the aim of reigniting shopper's love for all things fashionable.
Designers and shops, from exclusive boutiques to huge department stores, joined in and welcomed the public to celebrate this very fashionable fest.
Bergdorf Goodman had Victoria Beckham signing exclusive T-shirts and causing a roadblock as she posed for photos. The Olsen twins were playing hostesses serving cocktails to customers who snapped up party frocks and styling advice from the duo.
At the Christian Dior boutique Charlize Theron was bringing the glam-factor in a divine silver dress while Kate Hudson trotted along to Stella McCartney's boutique wearing one of the designer's gorgeous A/W jumpsuits.
Henry Bendel's, the go-to store for the best make-up brands in New York, had Gucci Westman, Revlon's artistic director, giving customers beauty tips on how to get the perfect red lipstick. Eric Damon, Gossip Girl's costume guru helped shoppers accessorise their looks as they browsed.
No New York fashion celebration would be complete without an appearance from our favourite NY fashionista, Sarah Jessica Parker. The Sex and the City star took time out from filming the second SATC movie to hang out with one of Carrie Bradshaw's favourite designers, Oscar de la Renta.
It was a fun and fabulous start to New York Fashion Week, and we can't wait to see what the celebs will be wearing front row.
