Out on the Town

Four of Las Vegas’ most popular retail venues will host an evening of shopping, celebritities and giveaways on Sept. 10 as part of Fashion’s Night Out 2010.

The Forum Shops at Caesars, Wynn/Encore Las Vegas, the Shoppes at the Palazzo and Fashion Show mall set the stage for the event, which was launched in New York City in 2009 to restore consumer confidence and boost the industry.

A collaboration between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company and the city of New York, Fashion’s Night Out goes global this year, reaching 15 countries. Visit FashionsNightOut.com for information.
