“Fashion’s Night Out” is a global initiative to promote retailers, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion. American Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, teamed up with New York and Company and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to create the event that will not only take place here in New York but will include fashion capitals in 12 other countries across the globe. Their aim is to remind consumers that there is an entire industry depending on them. The fashion industry is one of the largest industries in New York City, second to finance; the industry employs 175,000 people and generates $10billion in income annually. The festivities will take place Thursday September 10th from 6pm till 11pm. Over 700 retailers in all 5 NYC boroughs will stay open late, special appearance from celebrities and designers should be expected, contests will be held, DJ’s will spin and champagne will flow. The King of Prussia mall and all 40 Neiman Marcus stores across the country will also be participating along with select Bloomingdale’s, Bergdorf Goodman, and Barneys locations. So if you are not a local NYC resident retailers in your area may also be participating, check your local paper and join the celebration from your home town.
