Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) is an evening for shoppers to mix, mingle, and participate in premiere events that will include celebrity guests, musical performances, art installations and more.From Manhattan to Milan, Atlanta to Australia, patrons worldwide will emerge on Thursday evening, September 6, 2012 from 6pm to 11pm for the fourth annual after-hours shopping extravaganza Fashion’s Night Out. After a hugely successful pedestrian traffic-only event in downtown Savannah for more than 4000 people, the City of Savannah has earned its place alongside fashion centers like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago in celebrating this global event. Last year’s bash features eighteen countries and more than 4,500 events in the States alone. Savannah stands as one of the only approved cities for Fashions Night Out in the southeast. Other regional cities include renowned fashion Metropolitans Atlanta and Miami.Participating businesses will host workshops, featured artists, featured designers, live music, catering, complimentary makeovers, tastings and consultations during the event.

South magazine had such an amazing time last week cover SCAD Style REVEAL! With guest speakers like Kelly Cutrone, Derek Blasberg, Chris Benz and Hamish Bowles, attendees were able to soak up the knowledge and history of the business of fashion! To top it off there was an tremendous trunk show at BleuBelle Boutique featuring Diane Von Furstenberg’s spring collection. All in all it was one of Savannah’s finest 10 days.

Julia Reed, longstanding contributor to Vogue, Newsweek and Garden & Gun sat down to South to talk about the past and future of fashion journalism.
South magazine: Welcome back to Savannah.
Julia Reed: I feel like I’m the unofficial mascot of the Savannah Book Festival. I’m happy to serve, believe me. I came here for the first festival 3 years ago. I got to know Matt Prickett, who’s been putting it on, and some of the supporting professionals, and we’ve become really good friends. They love me because I make my author friends turn up.
SM: Now that you’ve been here a few times, what’s your overall impression of the city?
JR: It’s weird because I came to Savannah once to write a travel piece for Vogue back in the day when the magazine had a travel section. It was before Midnight and the Garden of Good and Evil was published, and it was kind of this funky…I think I was at Pinky Masters most of the night…but there was a genteel shabbiness to the place. Now to come back and see what SCAD’s presence has done is amazing…things keep getting spiffier and spiffier.
