Fashion's Night Out Invades Miami TONIGHT!

Fashion's Night Out is a global initiative, sponsored by Vogue magazine and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). The first event took place in New York City in 2009 as a means to encourage consumers to shop and support the fashion industry during the tough economic climate.


In 2010 the event expanded, taking place in Australia, Brazil, China, London, Paris, Berlin, Greece, India, Milan, Portugal, Russia, Spain, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey!


This year's event takes place on Sept. 8 at several Miami shopping meccas, with giveaways, events, runway shows, designer appearances, and more!
