NEW YORK, Aug 16, 2010 /— Fashionsnightout.com, powered by QVC, today unveiled a first look at its highly anticipated list of nearly 1000 participants, including retailers, designers, and fashion and beauty brands, plus their exciting events guaranteed to delight fashionistas throughout New York City on September 10, 2010.
In year two, retailers are once again seizing the opportunity to tempt new and devoted fans by crafting unique experiences around designer and celebrity appearances, fashion shows, games, limited--edition merchandise, artistic collaborations, musical performances, and more.
In response to last year’s success, retailers nationwide have joined this year’s FNO, eager to bring the initiative to their local markets. Stores in more than 100 cities are preparing to thrill, inspire, and entertain fashion’s faithful.
While stores outside New York City host their own festivities, fashionsnightout.com, powered by QVC, supplies links to event information provided by participants in cities like Los Angeles, Georgetown, Miami, Dallas, Portland, and Chicago, to name a few.
“It is truly the enthusiasm and involvement of our City’s stores that make this event such a success. We look forward to more participants joining in the coming weeks in an effort to support the fashion and retail industry on September 10. It has been a remarkable journey since Fashion’s Night Out debuted last year,” said Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour.
“The enthusiasm and creativity, with which retailers and designers have approached this year’s celebration in New York City, the country, and around the world, are truly inspiring. I am delighted that shoppers will have such an extraordinary night to enjoy fashion.” “Fashion’s Night Out the second time around will be bigger and better,” said Diane von Furstenberg, president of the CFDA.
“Designers and retailers are really outdoing themselves to create wonderful experiences for shoppers, not just in New York but all across the country, too.”
This year’s limited-edition FNO collection of style-savvy products includes fashion-forward short and long-leeved T-shirts and tanks, in addition to a unisex hoodie emblazoned with the FNO logo and a new abstract cityscape print. Forty percent of the proceeds from the collection will benefit the New York City AIDS fund.
