Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) originated in NYC and has since become a global fashion event.This year, DC is joining in on the festivities with over 50 stores in Georgetown taking part in a night dedicated to “celebrat[ing] fashion,restor[ing] consumer confidence, and boost[ing] the industry’s economy.” From 6-11pm, DC’s premier shopping destination will host all sorts of special events in the likes of free treats and live music, while performers from Cirque du Soleil dance down M Street.
But when it comes down to it, FNO DC is nothing more than a night of promotions (bring on the free alcohol) and extended store hours. NYC is where the real excitement happens… designer/celebrity appearances and live performances: Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham, Nicole Richie,Tom Ford, etc. @ Bergdorfs and the Olsens @ Barneys…
And the who’s who in DC? Lucky for us, FNO is hosted by what some are referring to as a ‘special committee of DC’s most style savvy media professionals, stylists and socialites’… none other than Z-listers: Mary Amons and Paul Wharton of DC Housewives! YES! I can’t wait… _________________________________________________
