Italy Confirms Dates for Fashion's Night Out

In Italy, Rome and Milan will be hosting VFNO on Sept. 11 and 16 respectively.

FASHION’S NIGHT OUT SET: Cities around the world have begun confirming dates for the sixth edition of Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, now a staple shopping and charity event. In Italy, Rome and Milan will be hosting VFNO on Sept. 11 and 16 respectively. Other cities on the agenda include Berlin, Düsseldorf, Madrid, London, Tokyo and Osaka, among many.

Noting the event attracts thousands of visitors each year — in Italy in 2013, attendance hit 250,000 — Vogue Italy editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani said VFNO was also “an occasion to support concrete projects benefiting the host cities and communities.”

Last year in Milan, funds collected from the sale of special limited edition fashion products were used to revamp an athletic field and adjoining facilities for children in the city’s Quarto Oggiaro area.
