Georgetown, D.C. will join the likes of other renowned fashion destinations such as London, NY and Rodeo Drive in participating as an official regional host of Fashion’s Night Out on September 10, 2010. FNO Georgetown will boast an exciting evening full of spectacular fashion events, special discounts and promotions, and extended shopping hours with merchant-hosted events.
Nancy Miyahira, marketing director at the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) said:
“Fashion’s Night Out is one of the biggest and most exciting global fashion events to ever come to DC, and Georgetown is absolutely thrilled to be the neighborhood leading the efforts for DC. We are inviting all DC area fashionistas to come celebrate the fashion industry with an energetic and memorable evening in DC’s renowned fashion district.”
Hosted by a special committee of DC’s most style savvy media professionals, stylists and socialites, Georgetown’s Fashion’s Night Out will bring together local retailers, restaurants, salons, spas and other merchants for the evening, making Georgetown the place to be on September 10.
Fashion’s Night Out is an unprecedented global initiative created by Vogue Magazine and the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers) last year to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping.
