It’s almost that time again!  Fashion’s Night Out (FNO 2012) is less than 1 month away and is shaping up to be one of the hottest events of September.  Originated in NY with a collaboration between the city, American Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers, the event was designed to restore confidence in the economy and celebrate great fashion.  Last year’s Night Out took place in over 18 countries with over 4,500 events held here in the US.  And just like the troupers we are, we Washingtonians braved the downpours to help make the event in our area a huge success! Proving once again that DC does have some fashion sense and we also love a great party!

While you would expect the stylish ladies of DC to strap on their Jimmy Choos and Louboutins and hit the streets in droves, FNO 2012 will also cater to the impeccably groomed men of DC.  After all, who says men aren’t fashionistas and don’t deserve to be pampered, spoiled and treated to an incredible night on the town? Clearly the event planner have recognized this fact.  There will be more than enough to whet your appetite and get you excited for the upcoming fall season with participating stores such as Ralph Lauren, Rag and Bone, J. McLaughlin and Lacoste to name a few along with local favorites Streets of Georgetown and Hugh and Crye.  In fact, this year’s event will boast more the 40 stores with an appeal toward men to entice you throughout the night’s festivities.

FNO 2012 will be held this year on Thursday, September 6th from 6-11p throughout beautiful downtown Georgetown.  With a plethora of events including trunk shows, special discounts, cocktails and other surprises, Georgetown will be the place to be and be seen.  For the latest news and up to the minute information about the Georgetown event, visit http://fnogeorgetowndc.com.  If you can’t make it to Georgetown, there are other events being planned throughout the Washington Metropolitan area as well as online.  Please see  http://fashionsnightout.com/fno/outside-nyc for additional information.  Otherwise grab your credit cards, checkbooks and cash and join be for an incredible evening that will sure to please!
