Vogue magazine's Fashion Night Out came to Mexico to show that, despite the international image of the country as an unsafe place, "you can go out on the street and have a good time," the magazine's editor-in-chief for the country, Eva Hughes said. For the third year in a row - albeit the first time in Mexico - on Sept. 8 a number of stores, especially luxury shops, in the Mexican capital and cities in 16 other countries opened their doors until late in the evening to allow the public to see the latest fashions and other products.
Fashion's Night Out began in the United States in 2009, when many people stopped going out to shop due to the economic crisis. "There was a need to involve people again in the luxury world, in shopping ... The success was such that new countries began to join in."
It's a chance to show the world that Mexico is able to have a fashion night rivaling the best that other cities in the world can muster.
