Fashion’s Night Out Bids U.S. Farewell
Finally, this week’s most emotional fashion headline was, without a doubt, the cancellation of Fashion’s Night Out 2013.

Sadly, however, official word is that FNO will take a ‘hiatus’ in the United States this year in order to allow retailers to focus efforts elsewhere. Head over to our announcement for more details.
