LoveBrownSugar's Top 5: Fashion's Night Out NYC

In case you missed the awesomeness that consumed NYC last September as Fashion's Night Out did it's first annual kickoff, don't fret! We're doing it all over again on Friday, September 10th to kick off Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. With a new website that allows you to browse FNO events by neighborhood, by type, and even by celebrity appearance, things can get a bit overwhelming. New to the game? Let LoveBrownSugar walk you through the Top 5 Hot Spots we'll be hitting up this Friday night. The name of the game is Block Parties this time around. You get more bang for your buck with free food, drinks, shopping and celeb appearances lumped into one! And the parties are ten times more fun downtown, so we'll be spending our time hitting up Soho and the Meatpacking District. Check out the itinerary:

FIRST STOP: Ralph Lauren
