Celebrities’ and Designers’ New York Night Out
Cindy Crawford, P. Diddy, and Hugh Jackman are set to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out in New York. A host of Hollywood celebrities and style icons will join forces for an evening of extravagant shopping events, shows, and parties across the US city—let’s hope that the world doesn’t implode when it happens.
The occasion—a celebration of New York being at the forefront of global fashion—has been founded by Vogue magazine, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, tourism group NYC, and Company and the City of New York.
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour said:
“Little did I think when the idea of Fashion’s Night Out was first dreamed up this past March during the Paris collections that we would have over 700 and counting retailers, designers, and brands joining us on the night of September 10. Of course, I’ve always known the New York fashion industry to rise brilliantly to a challenge, but I am absolutely thrilled, awed, and more than a little proud that it has reacted so brilliantly to this initiative. There is so much planned that we could shop till dawn and still not see and do everything.”
Designers including Manolo Blahnik, Roberto Cavalli, Tommy Hilfiger, and Isaac Mizrahi are also due to attend the tribute to the fashion-forward city alongside stylish siblings Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Karolina Kurkova and Ivanka Trump.
George Fertitta, from NYC and Company, said:
“On the evening of September 10, Fashion’s Night Out, spanning all five boroughs, will highlight why New York City’s vibrant and diverse fashion-and-retail industry is admired throughout the world. The citywide celebration will showcase the unique shopping opportunities available to New Yorkers and visitors, while encouraging retail support and giving back to important NYC causes. Forty per cent of profits raised from the sale of limited edition T-shirts will be donated to the September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center.
