Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) is an unprecedented global initiative created to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping. For one night last September, in New York City and twelve other cities around the world, designers, celebrities, models, and fashion editors staged exciting, one-of-a-kind events in stores open after-hours to the public. Retailers saw a surge of new shoppers and increased sales, while customers relished the street-party atmosphere. This year, FNO will host the largest public fashion show to take place in New York City’s history with more than 200 models modeling trends chosen by Vogue editors themselves. FNO NYC kicks off the beginning of New York’s famed and iconic Fashion Week where designers will gather at first-year venue Lincoln Center to show their 2011 spring collections. This year, King of Prussia Mall will extend the festivities into a weekend-long series of family-friendly events inviting customers to “Experience the World of King of Prussia.”About King of Prussia Mall The King of Prussia Mall, developed and managed by Kravco Simon Company, is the east coast’s premier shopping destination featuring seven department stores, more than 400 retailers and more than 40 restaurants.
