References to 9/11 Everywhere Among Retailers at Fashion's Night Out 2011

September 11 - Hope & Renewal
#8 in an 11-Day Memorial Series of Posts

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.

My 14 year old daughter and I attended Fashion Night Out in Beverly Hills, California, but Fashion's Night Out 2011 was a huge worldwide shopping event with activities elsewhere around Southern California.  In fact, a total of 250 cities around the U.S. also participated -- with 1,178 retailers in New York City alone. That's not even to mention the other 18 countries such as Greece, UK, Japan, China, Brazil, France, South Korea, and others  -- also involved in this year's event which is intended to stimulate consumer spending worldwide.
