A "FASHION NIGHT OUT" FOR SNOW WHITE'S MOTHER
September 8th will be a big day in fashion in New York this year because it is Fashion Night Out ("FNO"). From New York to London to Paris, people will be celebrating fashion around the world this month.
SWATH's very own Liberty Ross who is a model in her own right, will be partaking in the festivities at the Dior party in London. Ross wrote about FNO excitement on her blog:
"I am on my way to the Dior press office to choose an outfit for Fashion's Night Out. I'll be DJing at their New Bond Street store - if you are out and about please stop by! I'm wearing a Balenciaga leather jacket, Theyskens' Theory tank top, Converse and the cut-off denim shorts I got from my The Face cover with Kate! Can't believe they are still in one piece, I have worn them ever since!"
If you do not know what FNO is, it is explained on its Facebook page as follows:
"Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) is an unprecedented global initiative originally created in 2009 to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, and boost the industry’s economy during the recession. On September 8, 2011, in response to overwhelming demand, Fashion’s Night Out will return to New York City and over 250 cities nationwide to highlight fashion and support retail with exciting events that include designer appearances, celebrity guests, fashion shows and musical performances. In the United States, the program is a collaboration between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York."
Depending where you are in the world, you can locate the festivities that are in your area. In America, you can locate your local festivies here. In London, Vogue U.K.'s map can be found here.
Find the fashion fun in your area and if you are in London, stop by the Dior party and say "Hi" to Liberty and don't forget to shop.
