Fashion’s Night Out; a global initiative in its third year, to help drive traffic to retailers and build consumer confidence via special events and in-store appearances. This year, the day of festivities will be Thursday, September 8th, upon the commencement of New York Fashion Week. After waiting with high expectations, the list of participating retailers and events is finally up on the Fashion’s Night Out site. Excitement is in the air as tons of celebrities and fashion heavyweights will be in this year’s mix. In NYC, you can rub shoulders with Rachel Roy and Amar’e Stoudemire at Macy’s, sing and dance with Solange Knowles at Lord & Taylor, or get your hair braided by Rebecca Minkoff at Saks Fifth Avenue! This is just a taste of the AMAZING list of people and activities being served up for this go-around. Be sure to check back periodically for event updates.
