Fashion Night Out – Where Fashion, Art, Nudity, and Fun Times Collide

Seeing all of New York’s Fashion Night Out – an after-hours extravaganza celebrating the start of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week – just isn’t possible in one night. Fortunately, I live here, so I’m planning to be back with my camera next year!

This year, I ventured down to the trendy Meat-Packing District at 9th Avenue and 14th Street, and almost immediately came across this group of models…

(Even their dog was good-looking!)

Over at the Maybelline tent area, these leggy models posed…

And this group made a festive tableau in front of one of the many food trucks.

As night began to fall, the party only intensified with bands playing…

And many turned out in their best fashions.

Meanwhile, the group of half-painted/half-clothed models made an appearance to pose by the High Line and I got these photos…

In the area’s boutiques, the atmosphere was anything but routine, with every store pulsing with music, handing out free drinks and treats…

And conducting anything but “business-as-usual.”  I watched an avant-garde photo-shoot taking place through this window…

(The photographer gave the model instructions…)

And the next models waited their turn.

Meanwhile, at Moschino, the party was well underway…

But that didn’t deter this gentleman from doing his shopping.

In a nearby square, the atmosphere was a carnival with free food and street entertainment…

And the party showed no signs of slowing down.

And decided to call it a night myself, but the party continued on!
