The collected funds of this year will go to the Foundation of the European Institute of Oncology and to the Meyer Pediatric Hospital of Florence. “​We are particularly happy to hold the Vogue Fashion​’​s Night Out in Florence. Even if it is a traditional city, it always got involved with enthusiasm in this event together with big names of the Made in Italy. We are proud to keep giving our support to the fashion industry, one of the most important economic sectors of our country.

At the same time, it is also the perfect occasion to help real projects that will benefit the community” said Franc​a​ Sozzani​, ​Editor in chief of Vogue Italy. The entire city center will be partying and celebrating fashion. The event will cover the area starting from Piazza della Signoria and Piazza Duomo to via Tosinghi. You can enjoy shops and street parties, cocktails and DJs. And it’s the only night in the year when you can do late night shopping as shops will be open until 23:00. Brands and designers will make special items for this event, and there will be many discounts and gifts to enjoy. If you have always wanted to see Florence from a different perspective and you have dreamt of open-air fashion parties in the city center, you should definitely take part.
