A press conference was held this morning for a major upcoming event--Fashion's Night Out. During his speech Mayor Bloomberg proved that he is in touch with the fashion world.
“The men and women standing up here are the fashion-world stars,” he began. “If they say that boot-cut pants are back in style, then boot-cut pants are back in style. If they say capes are en vogue, then capes are en vogue. And if they say a simple navy suit is the epitome of sophistication, then who are we to argue with that?”
Fashion-related jokes aside, this year's Fashion's Night Out promises to be a huge success. With over 1,000 stores participating in the event and a public fashion show at Lincoln Center (being held September 7th), Fashion's Night Out is drawing a lot of attention to the fashion world. Tickets for the fashion show can be purchased for $25, with all proceeds going to the NYC Aids fund. [NYMag]

Focusing on our society's consumption habits and the impact we have on the Earth, we've designed a bag that is as chic as it is environmentally sound. The bag depicts Mother Nature, whose wind-blown hair declares, “Mother Nature loves us, love her back.”
