We are very happy to hear that Fashion's Night Out will be back, on September 9, 2010 to be exact. Before the big night this year, we wondered what it would really be like and if people would indeed shop. As it turned out, many, many did and it was considered a success by most. And according to ShopperTrak, retail foot traffic was up by 50%. Anna Wintour says, “It was only 15 minutes after the event began, and we were getting reports about lines around the block at stores throughout the city. It was wonderful to see people embrace this initiative, and we are thrilled that they wish it to return.” Agreed, Anna. Really, FNO was one of the most fun evenings I've had in a long time. The city felt alive and united, which I honestly didn't expect. And the fact that it was the night before 9/11 made my heart swell with New York pride. Plus, I watched dudes shotgun beers in the middle of the Prada store. So there's that. No serious details have been announced yet and there's more than enough time to plan. So what would you do differently in 2010?
