New York Fashion Week gets no better than Fashion Night Out. The kickoff to the week-long celebration of fashion removes some the exclusivity found at the tents and allows everyone to take part in the stylish festivities. Designed by Vogue’s Anna Wintour in 2009, Fashion Night Out combines fashion, celebs and an all-around good time.
With over 1178 venues participating in Fashion Night Out, there is a little something for everyone. If you think this is strictly an NYC thing, you are mistaken. Major cities around the world will be partaking in Fashion Night Out. And if that is not enough, there are several viral FNO events too. Below are some of the hottest fashion night out events outside of the Big Apple! -Leonisa Johnson
Two of the cities Macy’s locations will allow for you to get the most out of your Fashion Night Out, without tons of traveling.
