Fashion’s Night Out, the big shop-hopping party dreamed up by Anna Wintour and her industry friends last year, is really planning to outdo itself this time around.

To mark the September 10 celebration of shopping, fashion, and celebrities, not only will there be an FNO clothing line (okay, shirts and hoodies) and a one-hour CBS special documenting the event, but now it’s been announced that a huge public fashion show, involving over 200 top models and 1,500 random ticket-holding guests, will take place on September 7 at New York Fashion Week's new home, Lincoln Center.

As for the clothing, it’ll be a mash-up of pieces from different designers, handpicked by Vogue editors to educate the masses on the fall 2010 trends. How very democratic!

We're just hoping attendees don’t all consist of investment-bankers-and-their-girlfriends types.

Tickets for the show — which is completely exciting just for the 200 models alone — will be available at the Lincoln Center box office this summer.

The night will be produced by Vogue and SPEC entertainment, a company that’s done events for Tom Ford, Vera Wang, DKNY, Stella McCartney, and Marchesa, and a portion of the ticket proceeds will go to the New York City AIDS Fund.
