New York, NY (August 11, 2010)—NYC & Company, New York City's marketing, tourism and partnership organization, today announced more than 40 NYC hotel properties are offering Fashion’s Night Out packages during the month of September.

“Fashion and retail is part of the very fabric of New York City—supporting 175,000 jobs and pumping $10 billion into our economy annually,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “We are going to continue to help support, develop and grow the industry with programs like Fashion’s Night Out, our fashion incubator and the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. With a growing number of locations participating in Fashion’s Night Out and the largest public fashion show in city history, we are offering consumers more opportunities to see all the city’s retailers and designers have to offer and helping to strengthen our economy in these tough times.”

The Fashion’s Night Out hotel packages also allow for travelers to take advantage of great deals over the long Labor Day weekend.”

On September 7, New York City will host the largest public fashion show to date with more than 150 top models, showcasing seven NYC fall fashion trends selected by Vogue, and seat over 1,500 spectators.
