Fashion's Night Out
, the after-hours shopping event, returns for a third year this Thursday, September 8th. The global initiative is sponsored by Vogue
and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and was first put on in New York back in 2009. It expanded around the US and the globe the following year. For one night only, retailers stay open late and throw parties and offer giveaways in the hope of getting people to shop. Jeremyville, Stockton Johnson, Kareem Black, and Tes One lend their talents this year to the events.
Jeremyville will be at the Swatch store in Milan to launch his watch for the Swatch x KidRobot collaboration. He'll also be painting a large swatch and a 4 foot Dunny live at the event. In China, Stockton Johnson's photographs of Chinese designers' exclusive FNO outfits will be part of an exhibition at Xintiandi Style in Shanghai. The images will later be part of a fashion editorial spread in the October issue of Vogue China.
Tes One will be at the GUESS store in Soho, New York to custom illustrate canvas totes. The store is hosting an I Heart NYC-themed evening and the totes will be given away as gift bags for attendees. Kareem Black consulted with Neiman Marcus on a live fashion shoot for their event. The uptown store approached Black for help making their event cooler and livelier.
Fashion's Night Out will be held in stores and online worldwide on September 8th. For more information, including event listings, visit the official site
