Huge news, lovelies! Toronto is finally getting its very own Fashion’s Night Out!!! If you are not familiar with this awesome concept – FNO, which originated in NYC in 2009, is a night when retailers stay open late, and throw fun shopping parties, hosted by various fab fashion personalities (like the Olsen twins and Anna Wintour!!!). Needless to say, I am jumping up and down in anticipation of our first Fashion’s Night Out in Toronto!
“Fashion’s Night Out (FNO), held on September 6, 2012, is fashion’s most iconic extravaganza. Created in 2009 as a collaboration between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company and the City of New York, FNO has drawn crowds of editors, stars, models, fashionistas and designers. FNO is now celebrated through events in 18 countries around the world. This year, FNO is officially coming to Toronto! Get ready for city-wide events including buzzing bazaars and parties that will be sure to inspire and excite shoppers. FNO Toronto promises to be the city’s fashion shopping event of the year!”
And though retailers are still signing up to participate, below is a list of stores and brands that have been confirmed for Toronto’s first FNO on September 6th! I’ll update the list as more retailers sign up.
