Created in 2009 as a partnership between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to celebrate fashion, Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) has undertaken a global initiative to restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back into shopping.
For the third year in a row, fashionistas from New York to Milan and Aspen to Austin, have a chance to see the hottest trends and latest presentations from top designers around the globe…all in the course of one evening. This event has consistently drawn customers into stores, and by coincidence, has provided an platform to foster community, have fun and, by all means…get in a little shopping.
Not to be outdone by the world’s fashion capitals, Neiman Marcus Austin is partnering with publishing newcomer The Society Diaries to pull-off a Texas-sized blowout of epic proportions. Expect DJ’s, live music, product sampling, photo booths, personal appearances, and…well, pretty much everything you’ve come to expect from the original arbiters of Texas style. Though an RSVP is requested, this party is open to the public. A smattering of private events are going on around Austin to coincide with FNO, so keep your eyes peeled for other happenings!
