In case the promise of meeting designers and stylish celebs isn't enticing enough, today the organizers of Fashion's Night Out have announced plans for the biggest runway show in New York City history to whet the appetite of consumers.

The blockbuster event, which is slated to take place on September 7th at Lincoln Center, will feature over 200 of the industry's top models wearing clothes plucked straight from the racks based on the Fall 2010 trends selected by Vogue editors. (That's a lot of look!)

"We felt it is important for people see what wonderful fashion will be in stores at that moment," said Anna Wintour, the magazine's editor in chief. "This show will focus on the key trends we've identified for Fall so that shoppers will have plenty of inspiration to join the fun during Fashion's Night Out."

This summer, roughly 1,500 people will be able to purchase tickets to the runway extravaganza via the Lincoln Center box office, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting The New York City AIDS Fund.

"Making fashion and design accessible and exciting for everyone was one of our biggest goals when we first set out to launch Fashion's Night Out," said NYC & Company CEO George Fertitta, whose company is one of the main partners in the FNO collaboration.

"This fashion show is yet another great opportunity to showcase the industry's exceptional talent to a broader audience of New Yorkers and visitors. On behalf of the City, I applaud Vogue's foresight and look forward to kicking-off a new NYC tradition at the new permanent location for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center."

The official shopping evening takes place just three days later on September 10th, but given the rash of recent announcements about FNO (i.e. a limited edition clothing line and a CBS special), we're sure style connoisseurs are already revving up those credit cards.

We wonder if this famous actress who edited the May issue of French Vogue will be part of the festivities.
