If you have any interest in fashion and beauty, you’ve likely heard about Fashion’s Night Out (FNO).  If not, it’s an annual event where the fashionable, and those who think they are, gather across the world to celebrate fashion and shopping.

Fashion’s Night Out will be held on Thursday, September 6th in Georgetown.  If you live in VA, Alexandria is getting in on the action, check out their own FNO webpage here.  Still want more information about FNO Georgetown, visit their About  page.

Below is a listing of a few of the highlights for the evening taken from the FNO Georgetown website.
