As fashion week rolls in, the sample sales come to a near halt as the fashion community focuses on what's next! If you're feeling a drought I suggest that you take a look at the Fashion Night Out calender! There are hundreds of events happening all over the city and world wide! If you find the options overwhelming checked out Racked.com's compilations of Top Ten Events or The Cut's Frugal Guide. I'm personally thinking of attending the BCBG Store event where they re-create the fashion show in store, plus your chance to meet Max Azria and goodie bags.
