in the news: fashion’s night out 2012 dates announced
Vogue has announced the dates for this year’s Fashion’s Night Out. Interestingly, the event, which started as a way to boost sales for NYC retailers during the GFC, has been expanded so that it will now take place in all 19 countries where Vogue is published.
The UK, US, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Russia, Mexico, Australia and Korea will hold their celebrations on September 6; China, India, Germany and Russia on September 7; Taiwan and Japan on September 8; Brazil on September 10 and 12; Portugal, Italy, Turkey, The Netherlands and Mexico on September 13; Italy on September 18; and Greece on September 20 and 25.
Some countries will have more than one city participating for the first time. Italy will hold events in Milan, Rome and Florence; Germany in Berlin and Dusseldorf; Russia, in Moscow and St Petersburg; Mexico will host events in Mexico City and Guadalajara; Brazil in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro; and in Greece in both Athens and Thessaloniki.
The fashion collection for this year’s event has also been released, featuring letter-blocked t-shirts ($25) and canvas totes ($30). While the shirts don’t do much for me, I’m quite a fan of the blue tote (above). All items can be bought from the Fashion’s Night Out website.
Will you be hitting FNO this year?
