A face of the FNO 2017 festival's ad campaign is Ukrainian model, photographer and it-girl Kate Underwood. Mercedez-Benz is a primary sponsor of the event, and MasterCard is its payment partner. The first shopping festival FNO was held in New York City. In the midst of the world financial crisis, Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of the American Vogue, offered designers and boutiques to throw a "Fashion Night", when all the stores work until midnight, providing presents and entertainment to the visitors, thus attracting customers' money and attention to the American fashion industry.
The festival is held yearly in 10 countries and 17 cities all over the world. In 2017, the Fashion's Night Out has already been held by Tokyo, Milano, Mexico, Taipei, Moscow, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Melbourne, Sidney and Madrid.
