About Our Event
Fashion lovers rejoice!
For the second year, Atlanta is an official host city of Fashion’s Night Out (FNO), an unprecedented global initiative originally created in 2009 to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence and boost the industry’s economy during the recession.
We are joining hundreds of cities across the globe with designer appearances, celebrity guests, fashion shows, music and more! In fact, we’ve extended the celebration through the weekend (Sept. 8-12) with a series of unique events and exclusive pop-up shops. To get you there in style, a free shuttle, the “FNO Freeway,” will transport shoppers between Atlantic Station, Midtown and the Westside Provisions District. Shuttles will run from 6-9 p.m. on Sept. 8th and 9th and noon-6 p.m. on Sept. 10th.
The week will kick off when Tyson Beckford, Kenny Lattimore and Judy Mauldin launch Fashion’s Night Out Atlanta with “A Night to Remember” on Tuesday, Sept. 6th. To honor those who paved the way for African Americans on the catwalk and in the ateliers, they will welcome and recognize the legendary Bethann Hardison as well as celebrate the late fashion designer Willi Smith. Nationally renowned designer, and soon-to-be HGTV star of Design Wars, Michael Habachy is lending his considerable talent transform the Atlantic Station venue into a luxurious space filled with celebrities and trendsetters.
