Dress to impress, gather your friends and head to Fashion’s Night Out. This annual celebration of shopping features special events, celebrity and designer appearances and giveaways galore – plus plenty more surprises in the stores! The celebration marks the kickoff to New York Fashion Week—a stylish way to start the season—and the festivities all happen on Thursday, September 6.
Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) was first created in 2009 to engage consumers and boost the industry’s economy during the recession. It has transformed into a global fashion party that’s celebrated in 100 cities and 16 countries including Italy, France, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Greece, Spain, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States, with roughly 4,500 events from New York City to Los Angeles.
Our local FNO headquarter is at Fashion Valley Mall which will be catering to shoppers with runway shows, sales and plenty of pampering on Thursday night.
The fashionable evening will kick off with a fall fashion show in Center Court from 6:30 PM – 7 PM featuring looks from Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Bebe, Bloomingdales, Caché, Charles David, Chico’s, Custo Barcelona, Gap, jcpenney, Karen Millen, Macy’s, Sun Diego, Ted Baker and Tommy Bahama.
Following the fashion show, participating retailers will boast special in store events and surprises with their own Fashion’s Night Out celebrations.
