MIDTOWN—Bryant Park is bustling. The Zara at 42nd and Fifth is "almost completely scaffold-free," according to a tipster, who also saw a sign promising a November 28 opening date. And the holiday shops open Saturday. For a list of vendors, consult their blog. [Racked Inbox]
FORT GREENE—As part of its tireless campaign to support local designers, boutique Thistle & Clover hosts a trunk show tomorrow, November 22, at 7pm at their store on 221 DeKalb Avenue. Attractions include booze, food, clothing by Chulette and 2fer, and handbags by Corrente. [Racked Inbox]
WILLIAMSBURG—This Monday, watch designers go head-to-head in a timed contest to dress a model out of a mystery material.

For tickets, register here, and they'll e-mail you the start time and location. [Racked Inbox]
