FASHION’S NIGHT OUT TO STAGE LARGEST PUBLIC FASHION SHOW IN NEW YORK CITY HISTORY AT LINCOLN CENTER SEPTEMBER 7, 2010

VOGUE TO PRODUCE IN CONJUNCTION WITH SPEC ENTERTAINMENT

New York, NY, April 22, 2010—Fashion’s Night Out will stage the largest public fashion show in New York City history on September 7, 2010 at Lincoln Center, the initiative announced today. The show, produced by Vogue and SPEC Entertainment, will boast over 200 of the industry’s top models and give nearly 1,500 guests a look at the key trends of the Fall 2010 season as identified by the magazine. Tickets for the fashion show will be made available through the Lincoln Center box office this summer with a portion of the proceeds benefitting The New York City AIDS Fund.

“We felt it is important for people to see what wonderful fashion will be in stores at that moment,” said Vogue editor in chief, Anna Wintour. “This show will focus on the key trends we’ve identified for Fall so that shoppers will have plenty of inspiration to join the fun during Fashion’s Night Out.”

“Making fashion and design accessible and exciting for everyone was one of our biggest goals when we first set out to launch Fashion’s Night Out,” said NYC & Company CEO George Fertitta. “This fashion show is yet another great opportunity to showcase the industry’s exceptional talent to a broader audience of New Yorkers and visitors.”

“The CFDA is proud to be a part of this historic show celebrating Fashion’s Night Out,” said CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg. “We feel this is an unprecedented opportunity for the fashion industry to connect with the consumer in a fun and meaningful way.”
