Unless you live in New York City, you probably didn’t care much about last September’s Fashion’s Night Out. This year, however, Anna Wintour‘s pet project is going global. From Sept. 7, when the event begins in France, to Sept. 16, when it ends in Greece and Turkey, 16 countries will participate in the shopping extravaganza, with the various countries’ editions of Vogue spearheading the events. Retailers in the United States that are outside NYC can sign up to participate, too. And all of this, from the largest public fashion show, held in NYC on Sept. 7, to whatever crazy stunts retailers dream up, could make it into the CBS special that’s being made about the event, the goal of which is “to celebrate and support the fashion and retail industries with full-price shopping.” [Fashion’s Night Out]
UPDATE: Fashion’s Night Out was actually global last year, too, but this year’s event has three additional countries participating. With so much focus on NYC’s festivities (we do live in the Big Apple, after all), we had no idea!
