Dear NYLC readers,

You know that it is autumn when you can feel the summer heat starting to fade; the kids are headed back to school; and the city is slowly being transformed into one huge runway for Fashion Week.

Fall in New York is an exciting time to be in the city, and just because summer is over, that does not mean that we can no longer have a great time! This THURSDAY September 16th, NYLC is welcoming everyone to join us at the famous FAT CAT bar in the West Village. Come and join the fun!

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. If you have a friend that wants to be a subscriber to our newsletter, please reply with their e-mail address. Have a great week!
