MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fashion's Night Out and Polyvore, the largest fashion community on the web, announce a unique collaboration that will give millions of style mavens everywhere the opportunity to participate in the world's premier shopping event.
During Fashion's Night Out 2010, retailers in more than 100 cities across the country, and in 16 countries around the world, joined New York City in celebration by tempting shoppers with celebrity and designer appearances, special products, and musical performances. Thousands on each coast, and from numerous cities in between, took to the streets to shop their beloved fashion haunts and to discover new favorites. This year, they can participate in the event online through Polyvore as well.
Starting August 15, Polyvore will host an online promotion with FNO that will showcase merchandise from retailers with e-commerce.

Celebrity fashionistas, designers and Vogue editors will also be guests on the site, creating their own sets and interacting with Polyvore's community of over 6.5 million unique visitors.
