Date Change for Fashion’s Night Out 2010 Announced

VOGUE, NYC & COMPANY AND THE COUNCIL OF FASHION DESIGNERS OF AMERICA ANNOUNCE A CHANGE IN DATE FOR FASHION’S NIGHT OUT IN NEW YORK CITY TO FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2010

Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and NYC & Company—the city’s marketing, tourism and partnerships organization—today announced that the date for Fashion’s Night Out will be changed from Thursday, September 9 to Friday, September 10, 2010. The initiative’s decision is based on its desire to maximize local consumer and tourist participation by holding the highly anticipated shopping event on a weekend evening. The organizers of the initiative, which includes the CFDA, will work closely with the fashion industry to ensure that the change in date will not disrupt the ongoing trade activities of fashion week and the shows during that time.
