Fashion’s Night Out @ Saks 5th Avenue

September 10, 2010

Saks Fifth Avenue hosted thousands of customers at last night’s Fashion’s Night Out celebration. Customers were able to meet designers, play games with celebrities and super models and shop the latest looks for fall, all while enjoying cosmetic giveaways, mini-makeovers and expert styling advice.

In just a few hours, the store completely sold out of Fashion’s Night Out t-shirts. Sales of the t-shirts benefit the NYC Aids Fund.

Chairman and CEO Steve Sadove noted “Saks Fifth Avenue was proud to participate in the second annual Fashion’s Night Out. Thousands of customers visited our store to meet their favorite designers, see the latest fashions and have fun while shopping. Our store has always been about the excitement of fashion and this year’s Fashion’s Night Out was the perfect kick off to the fall season.”
