New York, NY —
Hundreds of retailers across the city kept their doors open late last night to celebrate "Fashion's Night Out," an evening of special events and promotions marking the start of fall fashion week. At Macy's flagship store in midtown, shoppers were treated to a live jazz band and complimentary champagne. A line formed outside to meet the designer Michael Kors and Tara Campbell was in it.
Campbell: I think this is actually a great idea to generate interest, and get folks out there and hopefully they'll do some shopping. Maybe they won't, but it brings some attention to the fashion industry anyway.
More than 700 retailers in all five boroughs participated in Fashion's Night Out.
