Fashion's Night Out

Tonight is Fashion's Night Out, in many cities across the country and around the world. Now in it's third year, FNO was designed to support the fashion industry during a difficult economy. Honestly, I'm not entirely convinced that it is still necessary - many retail companies are making huge strides. Luxury group profits are up, mass retailers like Kohl's and The Limited are up, too. I won't go as far as Cathy Horyn did in her column; we don't need to abolish FNO. Hey, I think there is nothing wrong with a city-wide retail party! Let's just understand that it is what it is.

Speaking of city-wide party, won't you come join me and a group of Boston Bloggers tonight as we head out on a FNO Crawl across the Hub? We'll be starting at Copley Place for their 6:30 p.m. fashion show, then we'll be heading down Newbury Street. The marquee FNO Boston After Party is in Allston; we'll be hitting the Fashionably Late hard hitter Liberty Hotel for their after party. I'll be tweeting the evening, so you can meet up with us at any time tonight - find me at @BosFashionista and #FNOCrawl. I hope to see you out and about!
