Fashion's Night Out is Thursday, September 6th 2012

Tomorrow is Fashion's Night Out, events held in multiple cities to promote the fashion industry.  It started in New York City in 2008, and has since been duplicated in many other cities.  Retailers have sales and promotions, fashion shows, experts giving makeovers and advice on fashion and beauty, celebrity appearances and food and drinks.
The event in New York City is the largest, but my city of Pittsburgh, PA is getting into the spirit a little more each year.  This year they have events happening at Saks Fifth Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh, and at the Century III mall in West Mifflin.  You can Google either place for more information on events, or look up FNO Pittsburgh.  I've also posted address and phone information below.  After this event, Fashion Week begins in New York City.  Fashion Week, for those who don't know, is a week of events held twice a year to showcase either Spring & Summer fashion, or Autumn and Winter fashion.  The one in New York City is often referred to as "Mercedes Benz Fashion Week" since it is sponsored by Mercedes Benz.   More and more designers will be live streaming their runway shows on the internet, so you don't have to be a fashion insider in the front row to see those shows.  I will try to post information on who, when and "where" for the streamed shows tomorrow.
