Although billed as a global event, eyes, ears and wallets will be focusing on New York City tomorrow evening as Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company and the City of New York team up for a third year to ‘celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping’ and here’s just a few spots you can experience a dose of your Disney favorites throughout the night.
ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ is scheduled to arrive early, beginning at 8 am, for its first-class ‘in-flight experience’ which includes fashionable Pan Am stewardesses offering coffee and tea to passers-by as well as ‘Pan Am’ Explorer and track bags. They will be stationed in and around Lincoln Center, from 8 am – 11 am September 8 and 10, 7:30 am – noon on September 12, 8 am – 1 pm on September 13 and 9 am – noon on September 14. ‘Pan Am’ has already been flaunting off its fashions at specially-converted bus shelters in Los Angeles and New York, including 42nd Street and Lexington, just outside Grand Central Terminal.
Jetsetters at Lisa Perry Style at 976 Madison Avenue will also catch the ‘Pan Am’ fever as some of the show’s cast, including Christina Ricci, will make an appearance. The first 50 to arrive at the event, which takes place between 6-8 pm will receive the coveted ‘Pan Am’ Explorer Bag.
Disney Store Times Square, located at 1540 Broadway, will offer its ‘Stylish Ever After’ event from 4 pm – 11 pm in which guests can get a sneak peek at upcoming fashionable Disney Store merchandise including the first public debut of Pixie Dust, a new fragrance which will include a personal eau de toilette spray for the first time. Guests will also get the opportunity to create and purchase their own custom charm bracelet at the Kidada for Disney Store charm bar and receive a free mini-manicure courtesy of the new runway-inspired Disney Princess Designer Collection nail polish, featuring hues ranging from Snow White’s luscious apple red to Belle’s gleaming gold.
Opening Ceremony at the Ace Hotel will be teaming up with JanSport to host ‘El Mercado de Carnival de Opening Ceremony,’ an Argentinean-themed event, modeled after a traditional South American carnival. The much larger news, however, is that none other than Miss Piggy is scheduled to make a couple of rare public appearances to meet and greet with her public to help launch the new Muppets X collection from Opening Ceremony. Opening Ceremony’s event kicks off at 5 pm.
