Fashion’s Night Out is Over…For Now

Just in from multiple outlets around the webosphere, the age of Fashion’s Night Out has come to an end. For now, anyway. The worldwide shopping initiative, backed by Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and NYC & Co., is “going on hiatus” this year, according to, but will be held in select international cities. Sounds like budgeting is the problem, and though I can’t really imagine the evening’s events brought in cashflow to stores or designers–shopping in champagne-fueled mobs is hard–it seemed to be a smashing success in terms of local participation from fashion fans and local stores alike. Check out photos from last year’s FNO parties at Highland Park Village and NorthPark Center.

So, here’s my next question: Will stores rally and host a local version of this fall fashion festival?


  • I think it would be great if the stores rally together and make their own events.

    I hope so! FNO is so much fun. This makes me sad.

  • Boo! This was such a fun night out in Dallas! BUT, I have it on good authority that the Galleria Dallas will move forward with their own Fall fashion extravaganza. The shopping must go on!

  • LOL! I knew it. People only go for the free eats, they don’t shop! Some don’t even bother to dress fashionably. LOL!
