#FNOMCR Fashon's Night Out comes to Manchester 2013

Well, was it an early April Fool or are British Vogue strutting those heels northward to fair old Manchester?

It was reported this weekend, after much speculation and rumour, that British Vogue will be staging the 2013 incarnation of Vogue's Fashion's Night Out in Manchester this October.  


London has remained the only official representative of the shopping event in the UK since its launch in 2009. However, not for long, Manchester takes over the show this AW season with Selfridges and Harvey Nichols on-board and events planned to focus around the Exchange Square area of the city centre. Mind you, this leaves me thinking... what about all the other #FNOMCR events?

I've covered Fashion's Night Out in Manchester for years, admittedly, I was probably the only one who knew it was Fashion's Night Out, but our fair city has always put on a show, however half-arsed. We should remember that whilst welcoming British Vogue (or, their Marketing dept.) into Manchester is a good thing: we know how to throw a party like the best of 'em, and this is about Manchester's contribution to retail and fashion as a whole, not London-on-tour.

I can't wait to see what's in-store (literally)
