Following the success of the expanded 2010 effort—which included the city’s largest public fashion show and the participation of stores in more than 100 cities across the nation and in 16 countries around the globe—next year’s event will once again expose shoppers to new stores and products through events and promotions featuring some of the fashion and retail industries’ top designers and leaders.
