Fashion's Night Out Toronto: Shopping Event To Take Over The City In September


What are you doing September 6?

No plans? Well, if you live in Toronto, prepare thy wallet -- Fashion's Night Out (FNO) is coming to town. The over-the-top shopping event has been running for four years in the states, and has finally set its compass due North -- this according to Bernadette Mora, Fashion Magazine's editor-in-chief, and Orietta Minate, Glow's publisher.

The event will see bloggers, designers, editors and industry insiders fête the fashion industry with parties and some late-night shopping. Started in 2009, FNO was created by the American Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) as a way to boost a struggling economy.

Although times are not as tough, FNO has become one of the most glamorous one-night-only fashion events. Lucky for us Torontonians, we finally get to take part in some of the sartorial drink sipping and credit card swiping.

Don't know what you're in for? Take a look at last year's FNO:
