Mayor Bloomberg & Vogue to stimulate retail with Fashion's Night Out
25
May '09
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, NYC & Company CEO George Fertitta, Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Executive Director Steven Kolb announced Fashion's Night Out, a citywide event to support local retailers. On the first night of Fashion Week – September 10, 2009 – participating retail stores across the five boroughs will stay open until 11:00 PM and offer an array of in-store celebrations and promotions.

Nearly 100 retailers have already signed on to participate in the event. Fashion's Night Out is sponsored by Vogue, CFDA and NYC & Company, New York City's official marketing and tourism organization. Supporting local businesses and promoting economic activity throughout the City is part of the Administration's Five Borough Economic Opportunity Plan to create jobs for New Yorkers today, implement a vision for long-term economic growth, and build affordable, attractive neighborhoods.

Small Business Services Commissioner Robert Walsh, Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union President Stuart Appelbaum, Macy's Inc. President and CEO Terry J. Lundgren, designer Vera Wang, Robin Renzi of Me&Ro, National September 11 Memorial & Museum President Joseph Daniels and New York City AIDS Fund Chairman Len McNally, and more than a dozen retailers from across the City joined the Mayor for the announcement in the Blue Room of City Hall.

“New York City's fashion and retail industry is a vital part of our local economy, supporting more than 175,000 jobs as seamstresses, sales clerks, delivery drivers and other occupations in apparel design, garment manufacturing, retailing, and other areas,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “Fashion's Night Out will provide our local retailers with a boost and will serve as a terrific kick-off for fall Fashion Week. I want to thank Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers of America for developing a creative way to support New York City.”

“Vogue is very proud to be part of this important initiative which will not only celebrate fall Fashion Week, but also support and draw attention to the extraordinary and unrivaled fashion and retail industry in New York City,” said Vogue Magazine editor in chief Anna Wintour. “The City is home to some of the world's most celebrated and diverse designers, and renowned for its vast array of retailers from legendary department stores to the most charming independent boutiques. Fashion's Night Out is about protecting this creativity and diversity, reenergizing New York's fashion and retail community and getting consumers excited about shopping for fall.”
