An evening of Art + Fashion on the LES with Gallery Openings and an Orchard Street Block Party
September may mark the end of summer and the winding down of warm weather festivities, but it's also the time when the city's gallery scene comes back to life and the fashion-conscious get a hint of what's in and what's out for the seasons to come. On the LES, these two joyous traditions are celebrated in one event, LES Opening Night: Art + Fashion. Now in its second year, this evening happening finds over 40 neighborhood galleries hosting their opening fall receptions, while Orchard Street becomes home to a block party with live music and a 'Looks of the LES' fashion show styled by Amy Odell. If you have to come back to reality, this isn't a bad way to go about it.
