Posted on 09/06/2010

Fall Fashion Week in New York City kicks off on September 9. Didn’t get your invite to the Gucci runway show? Maybe it got lost in the mail. But you can still enjoy high style without spending big bucks. Here are some free ways to enjoy Fashion Week 2010.

Walk the Streets - Even if you can’t get in to the hot fashion shows, there's still plenty of cool stuff going on outside. Be sure to walk around the Lincoln Center in New York between September 7 and 14. You may be lucky enough to spot the L’Oreal Paris Pro Team giving out free samples and touch-ups. To make the hunt easier, says to follow hair consultant Johnny Lavoy on Twitter for tweets that reveal their location.

Find Free Beauty Parties - Plenty of stores are holding free beauty parties with hopes of boosting Fashion Week business. Head to C.O. Bigelow Apothecary’s 6th Avenue location on September 10 between 6pm and 11pm. Not only will you get free grooming tips from Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino, but you’ll have a chance to score free samples, too.

Get Access to Celebrities - From singers to designers, celebrities will be descending on New York City for Fashion Week. Designers Christian Siriano and Lela Rose will sign autographs at an NYC Payless Shoes location. Head to Carolina Herrera’s Madison Avenue boutique for a chance to meet her. And while you’re out, head to the Sephora in SOHO, where you’ll have a chance to meet Gwen Stefani and sample her new fragrance.

Free Make-Overs - Tap into your inner fashionista with a free Fashion Week makeover. Maybelline will be giving free mini-makeovers on September 10th in the Meatpacking District. Plus you can get makeup touch-ups by a YSL makeup artist at Sephora’s Times Square location.

Shopping Discounts - If all that focus on fashion has given you the itch to shop, keep an eye out for discounts and deals. During past New York City Fashion Weeks, plenty of retailers have offered sales to help shoppers celebrate the occasion, and Fashion Week 2010 likely won’t be any different.
