Best Label Whore Epicenter

With the economy in the pits and ex-dot-commers heading for the Peace Corps, blatant materialism may not be chic these days. But there are still closet fashion freaks out there — you know who you are — and Union Square will cater to your every designer whim like no other place in the city. From Gucci to Hermes to Louis Vuitton, from Ferragamo to Christian Dior — sunglasses anyone? — to Marc Jacobs, from Chanel to Diesel to Giorgio Armani, you'll find a diverse range for every fashion palette, and you don't have to be one of Danielle Steel's debutante daughters to indulge. A little frivolity can go a long way — and at least you're contributing to the economy, right?
