Though Cathy Horyn was hoping Fashion's Night Out would end after its splashy second year running in September, it will unsurprisingly happen again on September 8, 2011, for its third year in a row. Details on next year's effort are sparse, and it's unclear if Vogue will stage another public fashion show around the Lincoln Center fountain starring a busload of supermodels to hype the night of drunken shopping.
But the press release states that "next year’s event will once again expose shoppers to new stores and products through events and promotions." Also: celebrities doing gimmicky things! Free booze (and canapés, if you're lucky)! And ever joyous traffic jams and fights over cabs! Riots over Jessica Alba or some other such actress! Vogue.com's blog post on the news informs:
While details on what to expect are still emerging, one thing is for sure: After putting together the largest public fashion show in New York City history last September, there is no telling what you can expect this year. We can promise, however, that across the globe, from Brooklyn to Berlin, it will be a night to remember—and all in support of all aspects of the fashion industry.
The fashion industry needs you. Reject the haters, embrace, and give back.
