Editor Picks: Fashion's Night Out 2011
For the third year in a row, stores around the world will stay open after hours to help celebrate Fashion’s Night Out—offering up special designs, discounts and goodie bags, not to mention a chance to meet celebs and the designers themselves.
Fashion's Night Out began in 2009 as a way to encourage consumers to shop and support the fashion industry. Now, it expands to more than 15 countries. Although we aren’t able to jet set around the globe tonight, we have found five ways to travel the world here in T+L's home base, New York City.
Exclusively for New York iPhone and Android users, is the FNO App for real time event information with "around me" options to help you navigate throughout the night.
