This year's Fashion's Night Out is all about giving back for Barneys New York.
The department store announced they will donate 10% of its FNO sales at the Madison Avenue flagship and 10% of Barneys.com sales to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Barneys CEO Mark Lee said in a press release:
"Whereas during the last two Fashion’s Night Out events, Barneys New York led with innovative entertainment and designer participation in activities such as karaoke, musical chairs and ping pong, we want this year to refocus all of our efforts on the shopping experience, which was the original impetus for Fashion’s Night Out—and in turn, raise the highest possible donation for this worthy cause on this solemn anniversary. We invite all of our customers, designers, vendors and business partners to participate."
Hopefully more retailers will follow their lead!
