Shopbop at FNO: Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch

Tomorrow’s the big day, and the excitement over our live Fashion’s Night Out coverage is palpable in the Shopbop offices. We took a minute to talk with Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch about fashion’s biggest shopping event.

Shopbop: What are you most looking forward to doing on Fashion’s Night Out?
Kate Ciepluch: For the first time ever, we’ll be providing FNO video coverage live on our site! We are thrilled to offer our customers a glimpse into this energetic night. I’m looking forward to interviewing designers and seeing all the cool things going on in the stores, from Best Coast at Helmut Lang to the Mercedes Benz-sponsored “Best Street Style” event outside the Derek Lam Soho store.

SB: Why do you think FNO is important to fashion?
KC: As the season turns to fall and the temperature drops in NYC, the atmosphere and mindset automatically shifts. It’s time to kiss the beach goodbye and get slightly more serious about everything in life! FNO officially kicks off the fall shopping season with the best of the collections on display in a celebratory, festive environment where a brand’s personality can really show through.

SB: NYFW starts this week as well. Which shows are you most looking forward to attending?
KC: Phillip Lim, Band of Outsiders, and Preen.

SB: And finally, let’s talk fall must-haves. What’s on your list?
KC: Sonia Rykiel’s patchwork blazer, a red bootie, Jerome Dreyfuss’s shearling tote, and yummy knits worn with cognac leather pants.

Tune into our official Fashion’s Night Out page tomorrow! Live coverage starts at 8pm Eastern Time.
