By Mai Hakkaku The world’s most fashionable all-night party is back for the fifth time. Fashion’s night out is one of the industry’s biggest nights, with cities around the world simultaneously celebrating all things fashion. Everyone is invited and with specially created events, great deals, exclusive designs and merchandise. This global initiative was the brainchild of US Vogue Editor Anna Wintour, and started as a way to get people excited about shopping again, during the global recession. It is now celebrated in 16 countries, each hosting a unique version of its own. From Manhattan to Moscow and everywhere in between, Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out (called FNO) is the one event that brings together designers, stars, celebrities and, of course, shoppers. Although New York’s FNO shuttered last year, the global event is still going strong, with new cities getting on board each year. India is the latest country to partake in FNO. The event will debut in Palladium mall, Mumbai on this Thursday. “Call it is a luxury fest, a block party or late-night retail extravaganza, either way Fashion’s Night Out has shaped up into an unique shopping experience for India ” says Priya Tanna Editor of Vogue India. Some of the biggest names in Indian fashion have pitched in to make the event a memorable one, Manish Arora designed the FNO India tote, Sabyasachi and Monisha Jaisingh are the talents behind the hightly covetable T-shirts. Even Play Clan has pitched in, designing a special FNO India pouch.
