Fashion’s Night Out in Michigan

September is almost here and the end of summer sadness is beginning to set in, thankfully we have a few things to look forward to: football season, the kids back in school, and Fashion’s Night Out is happening around the world on September 6!

Fashion’s Night Out will celebrate its 4th year, this September 6th, in cities around the globe. We hope you’ve heard of FNO and look forward to getting out and shopping your city each year, but if not, no worries, here’s a little background on Fashion’s Night Out:

Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) is an unprecedented global initiative originally created in 2009 to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence and boost the industry’s economy during the recession. On Thursday, September 6, 2012, in response to overwhelming demand, Fashion’s Night Out will return to New York City and cities across the country to highlight fashion and support retail with exciting events that include designer appearances, celebrity guests, fashion shows and musical performances. Purchase items from the 2012 FNO collection and a portion of the proceeds will go to the New York City AIDS Fund in the NY Community Trust. In the United States, the program is a collaboration among American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company and the City of New York. For more information, visit or FNO on Twitter at @fnonyc (#FNO).
