Christina Ricci and Karine Vanasse - Lisa Perry 'Pan Am' Fashion's Night Out Event

With exception to the Fashion Week-long ‘In-Flight Experience‘ from ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ which we shared yesterday, last night’s epic third annual Fashion’s Night Out event had me running cabbing uptown and downtown, east side and west side throughout Manhattan in an attempt to catch everything I could Disney. From Disney Store, who participated for the first time, to Lisa Perry hosting ‘Pan Am’ to Opening Ceremony’s Muppet X collection with Miss Piggy, it was all one huge thrill ride of ‘E Ticket’ proportions (bad airline/Disney theme park double entendre-intended).

Report: ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ Welcomes New Yorkers to the Jet Age

'Pan Am' In-Flight Experience in New York City

Today saw the first day of the return of Pan Am to the Big Apple in twenty years as ABC brought its upcoming drama of the same name to the streets of Manhattan to promote the show during New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

The ‘In-Flight Experience’ was initially scheduled to take place at Lincoln Center, but an unexpected blip in the radar caused a temporary re-routing to Columbus Circle where Pan Am ‘stewardesses’ are offering up free coffee and tea to commuters and tourists alike. Still, despite the change in flight plans, stewardesses could be found trekking in perfect formation between Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center, where they were handing out official ‘Pan Am’ track bags along with the occasional coveted ‘Pan Am’ Explorer bag to the fortunate few who found a ‘boarding pass’ in their track bag.

ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ to Showcase Fashions in New York, Los Angeles Starting September 2

To give viewers an up close and personal look at the stylish and timeless fashions worn by stewardesses in the 1960s, ABC’s “Pan Am” will showcase items from the iconic ladies’ uniform, ranging from head to toe. Beginning September 2, bus shelters in the West Hollywood area in Los Angeles and in front of Grand Central in New York City — among other locations – will be transformed into eye catching museum-displays exhibiting the custom-tailored jacket that gave the stewardesses a streamlined, sexy look, the perfectly-fitted white gloves that left no room for a wedding ring, the black leather, low-heeled pumps that provided comfort without compromising style, and the “Pan Am” blue leather flight bag, which was the perfect bag to carry belongings for a night out on any town they might have just flown into. Topping off this iconic uniform is the always-in-place classic hat. The displays will promote ABC’s “Pan Am,” one of the highly anticipated new dramas of the fall season.

SNEAK PEEK: Imagination Flourishes at Disney Store in Times Square, Re-Opening May 27

He almost (?) wasn’t kidding, when one follower on Twitter proclaimed me virtually homeless when I first announced the full closure of the Disney Store in New York City’s Times Square in the wake of a remodel just six months after the store first opened. So naturally when I was offered the opportunity to peek inside the store a day before it’s set to re-open to the public, I leaped at the chance.

One of a handful of media invited to tour the new changes, not only did I get a first hand look at what’s new at the store, but also received a preview of exciting new lines of merchandise and Disney Store-sponsored events to come.

While the second floor has followed the store’s new ‘Imagination Park’ concept model, the lower floor was more loosely themed and focused primarily on New York City exclusive items along with Disney Theatrical, Vinylmation, Disney Couture and Bloc28, along with some standard Disney Store merchandise. Within the past couple of weeks, these items have been moved to the upper floor while the first floor undergoes a complete renovation.
