Fashion Night out will have a full choice of places to go, things to do and see. If you are wondering what bridal designers are up to look no farther. To make things easier for you, you can truly “Plan Your Evening” print it out and take it with you.

Bergdorf Goodman will have lots of going on, including a Karoke Party hosted by Cynthia Rowley and many others.
Marchesea will also be on hand I’m sure showing this season latest looks and perhaps you’ll get a sneak peek at their new make-up line “Marchesa for Le Métier de Beauté”. I’ve been lucky so see some samples and there are lots of ‘frosts and shimmer’ in the lipstick line. Their Palette collection is the perfect compact offering a complete signature look for your eye, cheek, lip and face to complete your own transformation.
Bergdorf Goodman – 754 Fifth Ave New
Vera Wang will be making appearances at both of her shops and have some special guests with her. See her at the flagship store on Madison Ave from 6-7pm.

Vera and Evan will give dancing lessons to customers a la “Dancing With the Stars”! Bring your honey and pick up some great wedding day dance moves.
