This is the eighth post reflecting on 9/11 in MBE's special 11 Days of September memorial series pointing out the various ways hope and renewal has emerged from this great tragedy.
Though this Thursday evening, September 8th, was festive, acknowledgments of the forthcoming 10th anniversary of September 11th by the fashion industry were present at Fashion Night Out 2011. At Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills the catwalk fashion show culminated with a grouping of female and male models wearing different outfits in red, white, and blue.
Also, at Brooks Brothers in Beverly Hills, a classic commemorative tie is being sold with 100% of net sales going to the 9/11 Memorial. These are just two of the many examples of how retail businesses are remembering this great tragedy in their own way, while at the same time looking forward, upbeat and positive with renewed hope for the future.
