Fashion’s Night Out in NYC

13 08 2009

To celebrate and breathe some buzz into the NYC retail/fashion industry, the “Capital of the World” is hosting the 1st annual Fashion’s Night Out. On September , participating NYC stores and boutiques will keep their doors open until 11p and offer shoppers great deals on merchandise. Fashion’s Night Out is sponsored by Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and NYC & Company, New York City’s official marketing and tourism organization.

This shopping extravaganza wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity to be selfless. There are three ways for NYC-ers to show their style and give back.

Purchase the official Fashion’s Night Off tee for $30 at participating retailers. 40% of the proceeds will benefit the National September 11th Memorial and Museum.

Drop off gently worn clothes at various locations to benefit the NYC AIDS Fund

Volunteer your time with Clothing Drive tasks or other FNO-related activities

Sounds like this will be a fun night! On the website, I counted about 500 shops (across the 5 boroughs) that have signed up to participate. I suggest that you create a plan of action to help you with your game plan. Or you can check the FNO site on 8/17 and find out some of the special events and discounts being offered. That may help too! 😉
