The segment, which is being billed as "a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the world's largest fashion celebration," will be broadcast at 8 pm on Sept. 15, a few days after Fashion's Night Out, part deux.
"In our first meetings with Vogue, I saw that [the event] had a very interesting message," Susan Zirinsky, an executive producer on the project, told StyleList.
"I was fascinated by the enormity of it being a New York event that took off globally. And what really occurred to me is that after listening to the whining and sniveling out of Wall Street is that this was an industry that on its own said, if we need help, we have to do it ourselves. I was fascinated by the self-styled stimulus package."
The special centers around Vogue, the CFDA and NYC & Company's months of planning the second annual event, as well as other varied organizations, celebrities and designers who are involved in the big night. It'll also look at how shopping responsibly effects the economy and builds jobs.
With the debut of Fashion's Night Out last September, 800 shops across New York City participated and thousands of shoppers party hopped from store to store, rubbing shoulders with celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Sienna Miller, Rihanna and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen along the way.
"I think this year is really a continuation," says Zirinsky. "It's like a marathon and the baton is being passed. This is the next phase of the race."
