Fashion's Night Out To Be Filmed For CBS Primetime Special
The rumors are true--Fashion Night's Out is coming soon to a TV near you! The evening of shopping and activities meant to promote the retail industry will be the topic of a CBS primetime special. The event is slated for Friday, September 10, 2010
and the documentary will air on Wednesday, September 15 at 8 p.m.
According to a press release:
Cameras will follow celebrities, designers, editors and retailers as they prepare for one of the most anticipated events of the year, providing a unique view of the creative and logistical work that goes into coordinating an event of this scale. And looking beyond the glamour to the real-life implications at stake, the show will focus on the individuals working in all parts of the industry, from salespeople to design staff, for whom the vibrancy of the fashion business is a question of economic survival.
The first Fashion's Night Out was held last year and put together by Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and NYC & Company. It was perhaps most successful in Manhattan, but shoppers took to stores in Paris, Milan and elsewhere.
"While New York City is the epicenter of this event, cities all over the world took the baton last year and ran with it, and 2010 promises to be even bigger," CBS executive producer Susan Zirinsky wrote in a press release. "The message is clear: Responsible spending can breathe new life into the economy, and that means jobs. Fashion's Night Out is a self-styled stimulus package by the fashion industry that has ignited a global movement."
