As part of a bold global initiative, the international editions of VOGUE are partnering with designers, department stores, high-street chains and boutiques to create Fashion's Night Out, an evening extravaganza to be held around the world on Thursday, September 10, 2009. Here, in London's West End, they aim to lift shopping spirits and to emphasise the pleasure and joy of fashion. London is home to some of the world's most celebrated designers and is a number one shopping destination internationally Fashion's Night Out will reinforce this.
The VOGUE team will be working with retailers to create a night of original in-store activities, including personal appearances, makeovers and workshops, during extended shopping hours.
VOGUE has designed a limited-edition T-shirt for sale on the night, with 100 per cent of money raised going to Crisis, the UK charity for the homeless.
Join retailers and shoppers in the 12 other participating capital cities around the world for this unprecedented feel-good occasion, full of the theatre and allure that fashion and shopping offer – and you can say you took part!
