Fashion’s Night Out!

Fashions-Night-Out

Some big news for you shopaholics out there.

A few influential people, including NY Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour have announced extra-long opening hours on the first night of Fashion Week.

The initiative is called Fashion’s Night Out, where participating retail stores across the five boroughs will stay open until 11:00 PM on September 10.

What’s so great about it?

Besides extra time to shop, Fashion’s Night Out will provide local retailers with a boost.

Also, it will benefit important New York City causes.

A special limited-edition t-shirt has been created for Fashion’s Night Out and will go on sale at participating retailers three-weeks prior to the event. Proceeds from its sale will support the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

In addition, shoppers will be encouraged to donate gently used or newly purchased clothes at participating stores or at specifically designated drop-off locations. Clothes will then be collected by the New York City AIDS Fund to benefit HIV/AIDS organizations across the city.
