Get Ready, Get Set…Mayor Bloomberg Announces Details of This Year’s Fashion’s Night Out

Fashion’s Night Out (not to be confused with Victoria, Canada’s fledgling fashion event) is celebrating its second birthday this fall and New York mayor Michael Bloomberg shared the final details of the much-anticipated event.

Last year’s event filled the streets with fashion lovers in nearly every neighborhood where there were events, and this year promises to be even bigger – and hopefully better for retailers who gave mixed reviews on the sales success. September 10th will bring together fashion retailers, celebrities and designers in a celebration of fashion and its importance on our communities and the global economy. Steve Sadove, CEO of Saks Fifth Ave noted at last year’s event, “We started to see a turn in the industry, sales started to stabilize,” he claimed.

If you’re planning to participate, get ready for specialty items offered by many stores who also plan to produce limited-edition merchandise for all FNO shoppers.

The best part of the whole evening is the interactive nature of the event. People shopping out in the streets, sharing, laughing and enjoying the perks of a good cause. Like Marc Jacobs said, “It felt like a block party… it felt like what shopping is all about, the social ritual.” {Stylelist}

We couldn’t agree more. Last year we snagged Carine Roitfeld at the end of Paris’ big night (which is on track for a similar luxury themed evening this year), this year we’ll bring you quick quotes and pictures from as many people as we can catch up with in New York. Let the block party begin!
