The prequel to New York Fashion Week is here and it starts tomorrow.  Not only is it in NYC, but it has expanded to cities across the U.S. and around the world.  On September 8th, the fashion and beauty world is going to go mad with lots of limited edition items, parties, special FNO-exclusive events and general revalry!

I am just planning my list of places to hit (shame, I know!), and the FNO website has a pretty cool feature where you can map out your route through the streets of New York.

For more information, including events in places outside of the U.S., check out the FNO website, or follow the hastag #FNO on twitter. Oh, they also have apps for iPhone and Android phones.

A few of the events:

Missoni for Target Pop-Up Shop (EVERYBODY has been waiting with baited breath for this collection)

Target, 1095 Sixth Avenue, NYC; target.com
