Fashion’s Night Out returns to the chic Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC. From Manhattan to Australia, Georgetown, will join over 100 other cities and 15 countries around the globe to host Fashion’s Night Out. The annual global initiative was created in 2009 in a partnership between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping. FNO-exclusive events, over-the-top entertainment, and voguish locations are a must attend and will exceed expectations!
