Fashions Night Out:

Kansas City fashionista's squealed with glee as the announcement came that this fashion forward city was chosen to be a part of the world famous Fashion Night Out in 2011.

For the first time in Kansas City, local shopping districts Zona Rosa, the Country Club Plaza and the Power and Light District came together in the name of fashion to offer a special shopping event in conjunction with New York City's popular Fashion's Night Out. They will do the same in 2012, on Thursday, September 6th.

Fashion's Night Out was originally created in 2009 as a collaboration between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to gain excitement for shopping and to restore consumer confidence in a down economy.

Kansas City will be participating along with Milan, Atlanta and Los Angeles and many other cities throughout the world in a simultaneous Fashion's Night Out celebration. Locally, the night will include special promotions in stores, live music, fashion shows, live models, celebrities, makeovers, food and drink sampling and more.
