Fashion's Night Out

This Thursday marks the 4th anniversary of Fashion's Night Out (FNO).  What's FNO? *gasps* (because you should definitely know this, especially if you live in LA or NY). Fashion’s Night Out is an unprecedented global initiative created in 2009 to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy during the recession, and put the fun back in shopping! In the United States, the program is a collaboration between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York. (

The official hours are 6:00 – 11:00 P.M. on Thursday, September 6, 2012. Some Fashion’s Night Out participants will be hosting events earlier in the day, so be sure to check with your favorite brands to find out what their big plans are. (

Retailers offer goodie bags, refreshments, discounts, DJ's, and much much more!
