The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Fashion’s Night Out Might Be No More, Don’t Hold Your Breath Waiting For Your Missoni x Target Order, and Daphne Guinness Takes Her Awesome Wardrobe to The Museum


• Our days of free booze, hors d’oeuvres and overcrowded streets on Fashion’s Night Out may be over. The people at Vogue claim the event creates too much work for them during one of the busiest weeks of the year for the fashion world. Some large retailers say they are losing money from the event, as many people come out for the complimentary drinks and celeb sightings, instead of doing any actual shopping. I’ll admit, I had every intention of shopping this FNO, but once I got to SoHo, I was completely discouraged and overwhelmed by the crowds. Smaller shops say the event increases their revenue, but this is America, so who cares about servicing small businesses and encouraging their growth when corporate fat cats are losing money? What say you, bombers, should they do away with the event, or would you like to see it stick around? (NYPost)
