Women’s Wear Daily reports on how and why the biggest event every September has decided to take a hiatus.
As a fashion student, I always thought that FNO wasn’t really a time to shop, but more of a time to meet designers and celebrities. The purpose, which as stated in this article, was to get consumers to buy but instead, became one huge party. My classmates and I would always say, “Can’t we just have designers and industry people? What does someone like Nicki Minaj have to to with fashion?”
Personally, I’d rather be meeting people like Grace Coddington or CEOs like Mickey Drexler or designers like the Dannijo sisters. FNO was never meant to be “Hollywood’s Night Out”: Fashion is the first and key word here.
