NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2011 / — Lord & Taylor announced today that consumers have the opportunity to submit their favorite New York City-inspired photo to be displayed in the store’s Fifth Avenue windows curated by Candy Pratts Price, Creative Director for VOGUE.com, for Fashion’s Night Out.
From now until September 9th, anyone may submit their own photos of what inspires them in NYC via a special Facebook application on the store’s fan-page. Candy will select the images to be displayed in the windows and new images will also be accepted live during FNO.

Favorite Art Moment- Candy loves the Dubuffet in the Financial District
Favorite Green Space- Candy loves chic spaces to relax outdoors
Favorite Place to Meet-Up- Candy loves salsa dancing at Guantanamera
Quintessential NYC Photo- What says NYC to you? For Candy it’s all about yellow cabs and the Met.
“I am thrilled to be partnering with Lord & Taylor for this exciting Fashion’s Night Out project,” noted Candy Pratts Price, Creative Director of VOGUE.com. “I am a true New Yorker and love the fact that Lord & Taylor is embracing the City. I can’t wait to see the places that are close to me in New York in the Fifth Avenue windows and also discover new places other New Yorkers love.”
“We are delighted to have Candy Pratts Price curate our iconic Fifth Avenue windows for this year’s Fashion’s Night Out,” noted Brendan Hoffman, President and CEO of Lord & Taylor. “Before her editorial days, Candy was the preeminent department store window director, known for engaging and imaginative displays.
