Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out, the second annual evening devoted to celebrating fashion and inspiring retail.

 Fashion’s Night Out was launched in 2009 by Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and NYC & Company in response to the global economic downturn and its effect on the fashion industry.

 Last year’s event was a huge success in New York City, with over 700 stores participating, each featuring unique incentives in an effort encourage people to shop again.

There was food, music, and freebies. Stores even featured celebrities and designers out of their element, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen bartending at Barney’s NYC, Rag & Bone designers, David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, who challenged shoppers to in-store ping-pong matches and Vogue’s infamous Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour hanging out at Macyís!
