[via press release from CBS]


Oscar de la Renta, Diane Von Furstenberg, Justin Timberlake, Tory Burch and Anna Wintour will be among the many fashion industry stars featured in FASHION'S NIGHT OUT 2010, a one-hour primetime special that takes viewers behind the scenes of the world's largest fashion celebration, to be broadcast Tuesday, Sept. 14 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The special will be hosted by Emmy Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris, star of the CBS comedy series, "How I Met Your Mother."

The upcoming special will focus on year two of Fashion's Night Out, including "Fashion's Night Out: The Show," the largest public fashion show in New York City history with more than 150 models, at Lincoln Center on Sept. 7, 2010, and the actual Fashion's Night Out event three days later on Sept. 10, taking place in New York City and more than 100 cities across the country and 17 nations around the globe. Featured fashion luminaries include Anna Wintour, Vogue editor-in-chief; design icons Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch and Tommy Hilfiger; Justin Timberlake, co-founder of William Rast; emerging designers Alexander Wang, and David Neville and Marcus Wainwright from Rag & Bone; and fashion executives Terry Lundgren, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Macy's, Inc., and Steven Kolb, executive director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Cameras will follow these celebrities, designers, editors and retailers as they prepare for one of the most anticipated events of the year, providing a unique view of the creative and logistical work that goes into coordinating an event of this scale.

Looking beyond the glamour to the real-life implications at stake, the show will also focus on individuals working in all parts of the industry for whom the vibrancy of the fashion business is a question of economic survival � from Wintour's initial meetings in Paris with her international editors to discuss plans for this year's event to interviews with sales managers at the Gap about how Fashion's Night Out benefits the retail industry.

Now in its second year, Fashion's Night Out, a worldwide initiative to celebrate fashion and support local economies, was launched in 2009 by Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company and the City of New York in response to the global economic downturn. In New York City and across the country, participating retailers will stay open until 11:00 PM on Friday, Sept. 10 and offer an array of in-store celebrations, including designer and celebrity appearances, fashion shows and more. In New York City alone, over 1,000 participants have already signed on to party with a purpose and join in the Fashion's Night Out event on Sept. 10.

Equally successful on stage and screen, Neil Patrick Harris currently stars as Barney Stinson in the hit CBS television series, "How I Met Your Mother," a role which garnered him four consecutive Emmy Award nominations and two consecutive Golden Globe nominations. Harris recently won his first two Emmy Awards for his guest-starring role on "Glee," in addition to his role as host of the 2009 Tony Awards. From his film debut opposite Whoopi Goldberg in "Clara's Heart" and his seminal role as the beloved titular character in "Doogie Howser, M.D.," to his recent turns in the "Harold & Kumar" films and Joss Whedon's online sensation, "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," Harris has enjoyed a successful career spanning more than 20 years in the industry. In addition to his numerous film and television credits, Harris has also enjoyed a great deal of success in the theatre. He most recently made his musical directorial debut with a production of "Rent" at the Hollywood Bowl. Among his many theatrical credits include roles in the Broadway productions of "Assassins," "Cabaret," and "Proof." Named to Time Magazine's annual Time 100 List in 2010 (a list of the world's most influential leaders, thinkers, heroes, and artists). Harris is also set to receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the coming year.
