With the arrival of the Fall season, and the start of a new school year, also comes another exciting event in September: Fashion's Night Out.
FNO, sponsored by Vogue and the CFDA, started in 2009 in New York City, as a way to encourage and stimulate consumerism and revitalize the fashion world in the wake of the 2008 economic recession. FNO is composed of various events including extravagant sample sales, celebrity appearances, store markdowns, giveaways, drinks, etc.
I've always wanted to attend the NYC FNO, especially since this year, it's marked to be the biggest fashion event in history with high profile appearances, (The Olsen twins, Sarah Jessica Parker), but it's always been when I had to go back to boarding school.
This year, for college, I'm staying in Boston but I doubt I can make the trip to nyc, since it's on a school night (I am such a goodie two shoes).
Boston does have its own FNO, so I'll definitely be checking that out. (http://fnoboston.com/)
Tons of other major cities are also participating, I am sure the exact locations and dates can be listed on the official website: http://fashionsnightout.com/
For all you New Yorker Fashionistas, needless to say, I'm jealous. Hoping next year will be my year...
